Maybe if he had deserted and given aid to the enemy he might have received a promotion and a medal. Sheesh! /sarc

Sigh. So true. Look, no drill inspector is ever going to be as hard on you as the enemy will.

Drill instructors apparently need to start carrying teddy bears in their rap sacks and give them to recruits as soon as they see the first tear.

Good God...we were abused at Fort Knox in '69.We expected it and we got it.No doubt the same was happening at Parris Island.Don't know about the Navy or Air Force.

Suck it up,buttercup!

Bergdahl’s judge probably would have given him the death sentence.

I'll betcha nearly all FReepers shared this thought upon reading this..

- Marine drill instructor who's a bit harsh: 10 years prison

- Army sergeant who DEFECTS TO THE TALIBAN AND CONFESSES TO IT: No sentence and a possible $300K payout.

GOT IT.

Is Obama still president because it SURE FEELS LIKE IT.

I wonder if Trump can issue a pardon to someone sentenced under the U.C.M.J.?

He is CinC, so he should be able to!

If so, he should . . . and then award him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

My drill instructor took a snot-nosed kid and turned him into a man - and I will forever be grateful for the work he did on me.

Insanity. Given the details of the case I really (and foolishly) believed he would be exonerated.

TEN FREAKING YEARS? While Bergdahl walks free?

Trump's tenure has been a total disappointment in terms of cleaning up the military. Congrats Mattis, you appear to be worse at your job than Sessions is at his.

And this isn't (at least officially) related to that one recruit diving out of a window.

It's because he roused them from their sleep! He made them exercise until they threw up! He slapped them! Oh, the f***ing horror.

What on earth...

1965. A drill instructor marched his troops into a swamp-14 drowned.

If you read the article and still think he was just doing his job, we disagree.

Putting a marine in a dryer and turning it on isn't his job. Beating Muslim marines into renouncing isn't his job.

Navy boot camp in 1969 wasn’t easy. No hitting but lots of PT and cursing. Didn’t hurt me one bit.
