Hi ladies! Long time no see, sorry I'm super busy!!

I was just wondering if any of your dh's had ever been a drill sargeant or whatever they are called at boot camp? We're gonna be moving in a couple years and dh thought he might like to go up to Great lakes and do that-----I am afraid that after screaming all day and talking down on people--he'll come home and do the same to me out of habit... Is it like that?

I have no personal experience, but both my husband and nephew both told me they were dealing with MTIs/drill sgt's who's wives were leaving them. Not suprising, considering they work 16+ hours a day and deal with trainees all day, screaming at them.

My husband has talked about doing it, but, I said heck no! LOL

My DH refuses to do it. He doesn't want to loose his voice for good. After awhile their voices are never the same, it becomes soft and scratchy from all the straining and force.

Joe (my hubby) is an instructor at the Naval Sub School in Groton. And he luckily hasn't lost his voice, but he does some majorly CRAZY work hours. He's on call (at least it seems like it) almost all the time, for his students. If seeing my hubby working with these guys, I can't possibly imagine what it would be like dealing with him as Drill Sgt.

I know they work like 18 hours per day!! And their voices change over time permanantly from all the screaming.

DH really liked his... of course, he liked basic anyway. He didn't mind it at all. Of course some people would detest your DH but oh well.. lol

If you and he can deal with the long hours, etc. then it'll be fine!

dh is in training to become a drill sgt right now. once he's done we'll be moving.... somewhere.... lol. he wants to get settled in before the baby's here.

only difference here is he's going to be an AIT instructor. i don't know if anythings going to be different from a drill sgt, but i don't think it's as long hours.. could be wrong tho. i'll let you know when i find out how i like it [or don't like it]
