I got the priviliage of bunking in a few different accomidations at PI. The first month I was there, I was in Platoon 198 in the white, wood barracks of 1st Battalion. But, due to an unfortunate confrontation with the SDI, I spent a couple of weeks in the hospital and got set back. I ended up in Platoon 344 and the 16 man Quonset huts of 3rd Battalion. I did luck out though. Platoon 344 graduated only a week after Platoon 198 in 1958.

I believe that when 1st BN put up the present brick barracks, they kept one of the white, wood barracks to turn into Battalion offices.

The barracks had POLISHED decks? Not when I was there. We had wood inside and out.

We had,

concrete floors in the quansit huts I was in. 20 recruits to a quansit hut, TWO pails of sand each, one pail of water each.
These two ingredients along with a scrub brush will produce a concrete floor you can see your face in. Why do I know this, cause I was there, been there, done that. ha

Yup! GunnySan speaks the truth. The wood barracks of 1st/2nd Battalion and the rifle range at PI had wood floors. Quonsets huts at 3rd Battalion and the rifle range had concrete floors. I remember going to the rifle range with Platoon 344. The rifle range only had a few wood barracks so any Platoon from 3rd Battalion had first choice for the wood barracks because we normally lived in Quonset huts. Our DI told us he declined the offer of the wood barracks because he didn't want us living in luxery while we were there.

If you have a problem with what somebody posted, take it off of the forum threads and do a Personal Message or email instead of doing a "Shout" post. I was tempted to do an "Infraction" for the above post or simply clip it. But, I'll leave it up to Gary to decide what he wants to do about it.

Well any way one of the young Marines wrote it as a complaint on an outgoing survey. There was about 10 of us that got called in, the ones selected for barracks or sea duty. the SgtMaj starts yelling and threating to hold our orders if we don't tell him about the abuse that is happening because we don't train like this in today's ITS.

We all look at each other and we have no freakin' idea of what he is talking about. At that time I did have no idea. Well back in the squadbay the marine that made the allegation refreshed our memories about the incident. The reply from the rest of us was hell that type of stuff happened everyday in bootcamp. I guess you went to a kinder bootcamp than the rest of us. He was in 1st Bn at Parris Island.

Being a city boy, I'd have to compare Marine Corps boot to going to a Catholic grammer school taught by nuns. The Daughters of the Holy Ghost made what Marine Corps DI's dished out kinda easy.

I can't say I remember the Yellow Foot Prints when I got off the bus from Yamassee. But, I do remember it stopped in front of Recruit Receiving at mainside PI. The MP that was on our bus shouted "I want two rows of corn!" Over the doorway to Recruit Receiving was a sign that said "It it here that we turn boys into men and men into Marines"

meet DI after boot camp

"Perish Island", Plt. 259, 8/6/56. Because of the Ribbon Creek affair, we had Politicians and Brass all over the place, but it didn't stop the hitting. A big Indian, named Sgt. Longchase, slugged me, for eyeballing around, I just got up and kept marching, To the beat of the same drummer, HAHA.
I got slugged a few times, but never complained, I figured it was the rite of passage.
A few mos. later, while at Lejune, I spot this big Indian Private, walking guard duty. It was ex-sgt. Longchase. I approached him and said "Hi asshole" as I was a Pfc. it was good. We talked and laughed for quite a while.
Looking back they did me a favor, It made us what we are today, I finally stopped drinking and got my life back together. Semper Fi, Ken Rohlff
