Basic Training Story #4703
I was the only female in my platoon at first. 2 weeks later another female came. When it came time to choose a platoon leader, my D.S. picked me. I asked him “Why me?”
He replied, “How else do you think I’m going to get a bunch of horned up privates straight from basic training to listen-put a female in front of them and watch them obey.”
So the next day when I had to get up in front of them and we were waiting for our D.S. they started getting chatty. So in a loud voice, I told them all to “Shut the F*** up!”
As I was finishing my D.S. walked up behind me laughing his ass off and said: “Did you say what I think you just said Private?!”
I said, “Yes, Drill Sergeant.”
He looked at me and looked at them standing there quietly, grinned slightly and said to me “I told you they’d obey.”
