Marine Drill Instructors
DRILL INSTRUCTOR'S CREED

THESE RECRUITS ARE ENTRUSTED TO MY CARE. I WILL TRAIN THEM TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY. I WILL DEVELOP THEM INTO SMARTLY DISCIPLINED, PHYSICALLY FIT, BASICALLY TRAINED MARINES, THOROUGHLY INDOCTRINATED IN LOVE OF THE CORPS AND COUNTRY. I WILL DEMAND OF THEM, AND DEMONSTRATE BY MY OWN PERSONAL EXAMPLE, THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF PERSONAL CONDUCT, MORALITY, AND PROFESSIONAL SKILL.


 

The recruits are strong, cocky and undisciplined. But they won't be Marines until someone stronger, cockier and, above all, disciplined is finished with them. That someone is the Drill Instructor. In twelve weeks, the Drill instructor will square away what nobody ever finished.

Every Marine starts their life in the Corps by meeting the one person who he or she will never forget. 20, 30, or 50 years after leaving the land of the yellow footprints, the sight and sound of your DI is still as clear and sharp as it was when he/she first screamed in your ear to....

"WIPE THAT STUPID GRIN OFF YOUR FACE AND GET OFF THE *&^$@#% BUS!!!"

The DI provides the lifeblood of the Marine Corps and will forever live in the memory of every Marine. They are one of the common experiences that makes every Marine a brother.
