If you’re a soldier, you likely remember exactly how you felt when you first encountered your Drill Sergeants. The brand new U.S. Marine Corps recruits in this video are being recorded during the initial moments of their basic training at the depot in San Diego, California.
As you will see, their introduction to the USMC is intense. A simple task like pulling a string on a bag becomes difficult when there is an angry Drill Sergeant screaming in your face.
For those of you that have been through it, you also probably have never forgotten the first time you headed to the barber to get your head completely shaven.
Videos like these that give you an inside look at life in the military are something that anyone thinking about joining should check out. Having knowledge about what to expect can be helpful so you can be prepared. Otherwise, you might just be that guy that continues to get yelled at by the Drill Sergeants on a daily basis for never doing anything right!
