Warning, they mean what they say

   We went to Son's graduation this week. Had a great time, got so spend as much time as we could together, but even though we're new to this whole Army thing we realize the DS means what he says!


   The recruits had to be back in formation at 18:00 hours, not one minute later then that. Many families had the guys back by 5:30, you know, just to be on the safe side. One recruit got back at 6:03. He got to graduate, but he only got 4 hours w/ his family that day. (we had from 10:30 to 7). I felt bad for the family, but after all those weeks of training did the recruit not realize the DS means what he says?


  So if you're loved one is in BCT/Boot give yourself plenty of time to get back to barracks to line up in formation. A few minutes isn't worth the hours you're going to loose

 o.O Yeah.... they mean what they say. In what universe does a brand new private NOT think the DS means what he says?

Have him try missing movement see where that lands him.

Why wouldn't anyone mean what they say?  If you're hired for a job and they tell you to be there at 6:00 and you show up at 6:04, you're late.  Do you not expect any consequences?

 This shouldn't be surprising.

I thought 15 minutes early for any formation was "on time" and actually on time was late.  :-)

That is how my husband sees it. He figures if he uses fifteen minutes early as the time he has to be there he has time for traffic fluctuations, etc. I don't know why anyone would think that a DS didn't mean what he said. When my husband went to basic they rode them so hard about being on time coming back from family day.
