Synopsis: Parris Island Daze: My Drill Instructor was Tougher Than Yours tracks an under-sized eighteen-year-old boy with something to prove, as he guts out one more day of boot camp. His tormentors' Gestapo methods and foul language shock Private Joyce, but he gradually adapts using an irreverent internal dialogue of his perception of each situation. He frequently gets caught smiling and awarded extra instruction, which he sometimes is able to cheat on the count. With the support of his acid wit, buddy Buffalo Butt, salty bulldog Cpl. Winston, and the spirit of legendary Chesty Puller, he is eventually forged into a Marine.

From the Back Cover: DROP AND GIVE ME TWENTY!
Come out of your daze and suck in that gut, Sweetie!
Are you ready to fulfill your  lifelong dream of doing 10,000 pushups? Get a generous ration of SOS? Make the girls go all weak in the knees?
The Semper Fidelis Fraternity - Join it, relive it, or stand aside. 

 
Standby, attention!
It's oh-dark-thirty!
Good night, Chesty
Wherever you are.

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Parris Island Daze: My Drill Instructor was Tougher Than Yours tracks an under-sized eighteen-year-old boy with something to prove, as he guts out one more day of boot camp. His tormentors Gestapo methods and foul language shock Private Joyce, but he gradually adapts using an irreverent internal dialogue of his perception of each situation. He frequently gets caught smiling and awarded extra instruction, which he sometimes is able to cheat on the count. With the support of his acid wit, buddy Buffalo Butt, salty bulldog Cpl. Winston, and the spirit of legendary Chesty Puller, he is eventually forged into a Marine. Parris Island Daze is the best book I ve ever read on boot camp at Parris Island. I ve read every word in the book and even read some aloud to my wife. It s a wonderful, wonderful book that I hope all Marines will read and enjoy. It s great. Former Governor of Georgia and U.S. Senator Zell Miller, author of Corps Values: Everything You Need to Know I Learned in the Marines. By Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Parris Island Daze: My Drill Instructor Was Tougher Than Yours (Paperback) Written by Marine Corps Association member and Parris Island graduate Bob Shirley, Parris Island Daze: My Drill Instructor Was Tougher Than Yours is a tell-it-like-it-is account of what Parris Island (or any other American military boot camp) is really like. Recounting the experience of grueling yet invigorating training, and illustrated with twenty-eight black-and-white boot camp photographs, Parris Island Daze reminisces the forging experience without pulling any punches as to its severity. Parris Island Daze is especially recommended for anyone preparing to join the military, the better to inform them of the hurdle they are about to encounter, as well as the character and manhood-building rewards they can achieve!.
