In the beginning, there was darkness… And then… Recruits. Nasty and diseased, their existence was meant to be pain and suffering. The Drill Instructor was created second, to cull the herds of recruits and to destroy what little joy they may have had left from their former lives as civilians. Drill Instructors and Recruits are inseparable, the yin and yang of hatred and despair.
But really, name a more iconic duo than recruits and DI’s. I’ve mentioned this before, but I don’t think I could ever do what drill instructors do. There’s just something about yelling at kids all day that doesn’t really appeal to me. I would be the worst drill instructor. I suppose then we should be thankful for those of us that were willing to put on those silly campaign covers and sharpen those knife hands. It’s certainly not a job for everyone.
I just wanted to mention here that I’ve released a limited edition Terminal Lance NFT collection on OpenSea! While someone has already nabbed the Drill Instructor, the Recruit is still available.
