Ha haaaa. that is good stuff. I remember watching a poor recruit on the slide for life, he was anxious and did not like heights, was so eager to get down that cable that while starting in the forward position, he missed grabbing the cable on his ssecond grab...fell onto the hard rope netting and bounced off and onto the sandbags on the sides. Convusions and an ambulance followed, with DI's giving him hell all the time.

We had a recruit who thought he could get out of boot camp by jumping off the squad bays...granted they are only three stories, but he laid there on the deck, two broken legs, with six DIs standing around him shouting HEAD FIRST ****BIRD, IF YOU WANT TO DIE< JUMP HEAD FIRST...YOU CAN'T EVEN KILL YOURSELF CORRECTLY
