AIRFORCE ENTRY LEVEL TRAINING
YES DRILL SERGEANT: Each Tribe has a function and based on that function it has its own rules and regulations. So if you need the benefits that a particular Tribe provides, you will have to play by the rules of a Tribe. At first impact the rules may be very foreign to you, but a little at a time, the Tribal Behaviour becomes a part of your reality. Once you have become acceptably competent at the behaviour of the particular Tribe, you are ready to move on to the next step. A competent Airforce Pilot is a good thing. You do not want an incompetent pilot flying a $350 million F-22 Raptor above your skull at supersonic speeds.
Competence is not always good however. You do not want a competent KKK or NAZI. So competent is not always good and incompetent is not always BAD...
A drill sergeant is a symbol of excellence in initial entry training, an expert in all warrior tasks and battle drills, lives the Army values, exemplifies the warrior ethos, and most importantly - is the epitome of the Army as a profession. As a drill sergeant you are responsible for coaching, counseling, and mentoring of hundreds, if not thousands, of Soldiers as you transform them from a civilian to a combat-ready Soldier.
A typical day as a drill sergeant starts before dawn and you are with your Soldiers until it is time for lights out. As a drill sergeant, you are all that your Soldiers know of the Army and they emulate everything you do. Being a drill sergeant is one of the most demanding and difficult job in the U.S. Army, it is also one of the most rewarding. Just as you will always remember your drill sergeant, so will your Soldiers. It is up to you to provide a positive and rewarding experience as these young Soldiers begin their journey in the Army. What a Drill Sergeant does will impact a person for the rest of their lives!
