DI's Plt 3105 San Diego Oct-Dec 1978
 
SDI SSGT Banaszek - I ran into him in Gitmo in 1980, he's now a College Professor.

DI SSGT Howiler .

DI SSGT Ortiz - I heard a familiar voice in the San Onofre Beach Club shortly after i pinned on WO. I asked if he was a DI, he said, "why, are you one of my boots?" and replied, "I was one of your boots, how about a SIR when you talk to me"... we both got a chuckle out of that one.. he was now a MSGT select and we became pretty good friends.

DI Sgt Burgess - One day at 1st Tanks, one of my bootcamp buddies ran up and said "Sgt Burgess is at Bn Maintenance!!" so we all ran over there (5 or 6 of us came out of the same platoon/series) to say hello... we converged on him from all sides, he said "what are you guys doing here?" we all replied "what are you doing here?",, he said I'm a Tanker"... I think he thought he was going to get an @$$ whoopin' for all the thumpin' he "allegedly" did as the platoon heavy DI.

THIS is the kind of information we'd add to your personal section in the boot camp database.....

I am sorry, I really do not belong here as a medically retired Navyman. However I was Googleing my father and this came up as a hit.

Sgt3531, your SDI GySgt Bernard Mounce was my father. I do remember those wonderful years stationed at Parris Island. You may have had the pleasure of meeting me at one time or another. My dad used to like to bring me in and bet recruits that they could not do twice as may push ups as I could. He never lost a bet. Dad did two tours pushing boots at PI. I got strong during those tours. Sadly my father died within 11 years of retiring from the USMC. He may no longer be with me, but there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I have a retirement shadowbox dedicated to him on my dresser in my bedroom and the only thing that has changed in it since the day it was made is the flag. It now has the one that draped his coffin untouched since that day.

Semper Fi from a brat. And God bless all those that serve
