Yes, Drill Sergeant!

For most people February 14th immediately brings to mind St. Valentines Day, with thoughts of those they love or have loved or even hope to love.

For me, on the other hand, the first image that comes to mind when the 14th is mentioned is a Drill Sergeant yelling at me to get a move on while exiting an old green bus.

Yes, St. Valentines Day marked my first day of Army basic training years ago, so instead of thoughts of chocolate and roses, my mind is usually filled with nostalgic remembrance of what I thought was the worst day of my life, yet now see as one of the best.
