Lots of overlap, but between these sites, I found every cadence I could remember(not always exactly the WAY I remember them, but close)

You betta believe it mole... I ended service as 11M... usually in a Bradley, but started out as 11B .. just a walker, so I relied on the "colorful" cadence to keep me from going nuts! :goof:

Big DITTO here mole!!

I have no regrets whatsoever... and believe me, if I was still under 35, and had the same back I had in my 20's... I'd have re-upped after 9/11...

But.. since I'm now 37, been out for almost 10 years, and my back wouldn't put up with that much anymore...

Here I sit, yelling HoooWaahhh at CNN!! :D

OMG that is so true mole....

I think about it now... and wonder what I'd say as a pimple faced LT gave me an order I didn't like. Probably something like "who the f@ck do you think you're talkin' to son?? I was in this man's Army back when you were sitin' around in sh!tty diapers!!"

Wharf...my father gave me a little insight into the physchology of what the military does to your head while in basic. As you know their authority is to never be questioned, they want to break you down and have you respond to every command without question.

Break the "me" from their new meat machine... hone it both mentaly and physicaly to respond to orders and the end result "basic"... is a soldier ready to go on to his/her respective AIT.

Then unlike the militaries of other countries. Then.. they will give you responsibilities and rank as deserved, allowing you to think for yourself with a "military" mind.:D "you've heard that before". Even the slick sleeve private is encouraged to think for himself.

This thread is about "cadence" songs. :lol: Think about them...their words are designed to take your mind off the task at hand but alot of them are preparing the soldier for "war". Songs about death, yours and the enemies', about conquest and bravado, they knew what they were doing.

It was good and good for you. I liked it!

That's a good way of putting it mole... and it does indeed work. They break you down then build you back up... thier way. It worked on me, I went in as a rebelious boy, and came out of basic as a fighting machine, olive drab ran through my viens, and I pi$$ed camouflage....

I loved the smell of the gunpowder on the range in the morning, actually started to enjoy the PT... but most of all, being a gear in the most powerful military machine on earth was... beyond words...

But now ... it's been a long time since basic training... and I don't take orders from kids very well anymore...

Perhaps it's best we leave the fighting to the younger kids...


Although.. did you see what Bruce Willis did? He got pi$$ed at the crap some in Hollywood are spewing about the war... so he wanted to enlist. When his friends told him he was too old at 47... he called the President and asked what he could do!! He was ready to strap on his web gear and join the fight!!

I know this is going way :topic:... but Bruce earned my instant respect with that... I'll go see every movie he makes from now on!!

:patriot:

Damn Wharf...we share alot of the same feelings!

I took great pride in wearing the uniform. And I had my sh!t together, never got a gig in basic. Basic was a cake walk to me also. I was in good shape when I got to the reception center, weighed about 220 but came out of basic a very hard 198.

Like you... that gun powder smelled good to me too.

You know...I got into a little trouble on this board for letting my passion show concerning those who would dare do harm to this great nation. I want say those things again but I will never stand down from what I said. Like George S Patton said "I Love it so" You don't need to comment on this.

Burce Willis...YEA...he's his own man! And I will not support anyone who spoke out against the war! Not because I'm pro- war, only a fool would be... but because I'm pro American and those boys rely on the support of the home front.

Glad you guys liked it...we were damned lucky to have a Drill Sgt who probably grew up singing gospel. It was amazing how much of a difference his calling the cadence made when we were doing the longer runs. I was a little older in Basic than a lot of the guys around me since I got my degree first, but even having a Drill who was only 3-4 years older than me wasn't a big deal so long as I knew he was just doing his job. I did remeber getting pissed when we got smoked a couple of times just because the Drill was in a pissy mood...

My D.S. was LDS. His demeaner had a profound impact on me...I converted seven years later!

Lol...yeah, but it happenned infrequently enough that when it DID happen, it bugged the snit out of me. I remember the last time we got really smoked was a week before graduation. Our oldest Drill(the guy with the great voice), was suppossed to get the weekend off and something came up where he had to stay in the barracks. The guy smoked us for 45 minutes just because he was pissed off.
