  1. When I taught drill classes my favorite thing on "Right Dress" was saying "I want to hear eyes clicking when I say eyes front!!!!" Always gets a laugh from the troops and lessens the tension, THEN you hit them HARD with the drill and make 'em sweat!

  2. That's how Drill Sergeants train now days? Damn…. Correct way to teach marching….

    1.​Instructional Formation, MARCH. AT EASE. The next movement, which I will
    name, explain, have demonstrated, and which you will conduct practical work on, is
    the 30 inch step from the halt and the halt.

    ​ ​
    2.​This movement is used to march an element from point A to point B in a uniform
    manner. ​​

    3.​The commands for these movements are Forward, MARCH and HALT.​

    4.​Forward, MARCH is a two-part command, Forward is the preparatory command,
    and MARCH is the command of execution. HALT is also a two-part command
    when preceded by a preparatory command, such as Squad, Platoon, or Demonstrator.
    I will use Demonstrator as the preparatory command, and HALT as the command of
    execution. ​​

    5.​When given, these commands are as follows: Forward, MARCH. Demonstrator,
    HALT.​
    ————————————————————————————————————————

    STEP II

    6.​Demonstrator, POST. I will use the stepbystep method of instruction.​

    7.​On the preparatory command Forward of Forward, MARCH, without noticeable
    movement, shift the weight of the body to the right foot. Forward.​

    8.​On the command of execution MARCH of Forward, MARCH, step forward 30 ​
    inches with the left foot, keeping the head and eyes fixed to the front. The arms swing
    in a natural motion, without exaggeration and without bending at the elbows,
    approximately nine inches straight to the front and six inches straight to the rear of the
    trouser seams. Keep the fingers curled as in the position of attention so that the fingers
    just clear the trousers. MARCH.​

    9..​On the command of execution STEP of Ready, STEP, execute a 30-inch step forward
    with the trail foot. Once again, ensure that you keep the head and eyes fixed to the front.
    Allow the arms to swing in a natural motion, without exaggeration and without bending
    the elbows, approximately nine inches straight to the front and six inches straight to the
    rear of the trouser seams. Keep the fingers curled as in the position of attention, so that
    the fingers just clear the trousers. Ready, STEP.​

    10. You will continue marching in this manner until otherwise directed. To further
    illustrate this movement, I will have my demonstrator execute a series of steps.
    Ready, STEP. Ready, STEP.​

    11. The command to terminate this movement is HALT. The halt is executed in two
    counts. The preparatory command Demonstrator of Demonstrator, HALT, may be
    given as either foot strikes the marching surface. However, the command of execution
    HALT of Demonstrator, HALT, must be given the next time that same foot strikes
    the marching surface.​

    12. On the command of execution STEP of Ready, STEP, execute a 30-inch step forward
    with the trail foot. When that foot strikes the marching surface, the demonstrator will
    receive the preparatory command Demonstrator of Demonstrator, HALT. Ready,
    STEP. Demonstrator.​

    13. On the command of execution STEP of Ready, STEP, execute a 30-inch step forward
    with the trail foot. This is the intermediate step required between the preparatory
    command and the command of execution. Ready, STEP.​

    14. On the command of execution STEP of Ready, STEP, execute a 30-inch step forward
    with the trail foot. When the foot strikes the marching surface, the demonstrator will
    receive the command of execution HALT of Demonstrator, HALT. Ready, STEP.
    HALT. ​

    15. On the command of execution STEP of Ready, STEP, execute a 30-inch step forward
    with the trail foot, this being the additional step required after the command of
    execution. Ready, STEP.​

    16. On the command of execution STEP of Ready, STEP, bring the trail foot alongside
    the lead foot, resuming the position of attention, thus terminating this movement.
    Ready, STEP. RE-FORM.​

    17. At normal cadence, this movement would look as follows: Forward, MARCH.
    Demonstrator, HALT. AT EASE.​

    18. What are your questions pertaining to this movement when executed at normal cadence
    or using the stepbystep method of instruction?​

    19. Demonstrator, ATTENTION. You will now become my assistant instructor.
    FALL OUT.​

  3. Man I wish I got this treatment at fort benning And thanking the drill sgt "thank me with more pt…… half right" LMFAO

  4. So the fucks in my jrotc got it easy while I got yelled at 24/7? I went through actual btc while my school went to the same site that I was training in for their jclc while I was still in training

  5. I visited Knox July of last year. Did basic and AIT there back in '84. It was cool driving around post seeing my old barracks, obstacle course and the entrance to agony & misery..miss those PT runs! LOL

  6. I was the Cadre for the Rope Slide; swiss seat during this training summer of 1985, Ft Knox it was a new experience for a 22 year old Sargent.

  7. I keep forgetting my high school gym teacher was a drill sergeant and the one in the beginning I swear could be him.

  8. If this is the beginning, that drill sergeant is being nice af. Who else misses the 72 hours of living hell? Lmao

  9. They are so ate up. Geez. Also fix your damn PCs. Your PC is supposed to be parallel to the marching surface. It's not a baseball cap. That erks me so much. Its looks stupid when they have it all the way down to their ears like a baseball cap.

  10. high school—di i say moves forward with them—-others i will say what happens usually–90 percent time—other videos–these di
    lose it–110 percent effort 7/24—really until that drill instructor started following in high school close to a fuck up—or he would be most likely someplace different like an university—thats all no grades 4 that shit—today he may make it
    that high school kid feeling weak today or what have u —not til u r out of school does that go away—-that kid most likely
    avoids that branch—or leaves high school and never a word spoken about it again—in the working world no one wants to hear that shit.

  11. I was stationed at Ft. Knox, was 3rd. Brigade 1st, ID. well anyways I was sittin in the chow hall at a table by myself, and a group of drill sgts for rotc came up, asked if anyone was sitting there, I told em all yours. they took off their round and browns and laid em all the table. as one of them is walkin away he looks at me and says pvt dont let anyone take off with our round and browns. I said drill sgt no offence but I dont think anyone here is dumb enough to touch your round and brown. he chuckled then asked me to hand it to him, I said drill sgt I cant afford to get smoked here I got work for brigade that needs doin. they all laughed and walked off. I finished my food instantly, sat there waited for them to come back, they thanked me and I went about my day. it was my first duty station guessing I still was scared of em back then.

  12. These fuckers wouldn't last a day in marine corps boot camp. I thought this was air force. Just march them down to Starbucks.

  13. So is this a punishment detail for drills? Did he raise his voice in BCT and some fruitcake complain? I ask because that happened in my BCT in 2012 and we never saw that drill sargent again.

  14. I just got out of boot camp at MCRD San Diego and holy shit drill for the Army is trash compared to how Marines execute drill movements 😂

  15. You can definitely tell these are freshmen and sophomores. I was stationed at Ft. Knox from 1987-1989. Maybe the drill sergeants were told to tone it down a little since they were dealing with basically 14-15 year old kids.

  16. Bruh I swear the drill Sgt with the raspy voice got on my ass it wasn't this same year but our drill sgts told our platoon to yell Cavs scouts ain't shit then we all did it this fool sees me from a good distance and only me and just went off lol I was like thinking to myself all these people that said it he finds me and said since your a funny guy he made me stand there and tell jokes
