Become a Barracks Nazi. Outlaw everything until they comply. When I was in the Navy we had a Barracks Nazi and we had the nicest barracks on the base.

When I was at F.E. Warren AFB we had a competition, and the nicest dorm got some kind of reward.  At the squadron level, the Room of the Month guy/gal got a 3-day pass if your room won.  I can't remember what Squadron Dormitory of the Month got, but I remember squadron-sponsored barbeques and picnics, so that must have been it.

Put your boys on the incentive plan, because people usually work better with a reward system in place.  The reward may be as simple as NOT having a GI party on Saturday, but ya gotta have some kind of carrot to dangle in front of them...
If it works, it's a Fluke.

Humiliation works great too. Make the ones who live like pigs be a pig. During the GI party make them wear pig noses and have signs around their necks with statements like " I'm a Pig " and " Oink Oink ".  Or did the military go wussy on us and won't let us do that kind of stuff anymore?

It might be part of the "don't ask, don't tell" philosophy.  You have to be sensitive to the pigs' feelings...

I think they would call it something like "unnecessary humiliation" or something similar.  I think it's a great idea.  It would make one hell of a point but then some wuss would get his feelings hurt and bring a gun back to the dorms.  I think I should be armed.  Gotta protect myself from those kind of people.

I thought the military had a policy of humiliation of the enlisted. At least it was like that when most of us were in. I guess it's a New Kinder Military.  :?

Whoa, say what?  Time out cards?  Please tell me this is a joke.  Granted, when I went through it was on its way to a "kinder, gentler, Air Force" but that's just stupid.  So it's a joke...right?

I have been thru Lackland AFB recruit training and Club Orlando Naval recruit training.

I have been priviledged enough to go thru 2 boot camps.
DEFINITION OF A VETERAN:

A veteran - whether on active duty, honorably discharged, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'

That is Honor, and there are way too many people in

I heard they have stopped wearing leggings. I never carried the lead filled M14. I was in a 900 company ( Flag Corp. )

Well, somehow the dorm residents managed to pull together and clean up their act.  I'll bet anything it'll go to s**t this weekend and they'll be out here for the next weekend.  However, there was one spot in the grass that I had to point out to the shirt.  During this last week of picking up cigarette butts, there was a decent sized spot in the grass that was absolutely crowded with butts.  As the shirt and I are walking around he points out that on the third floor there is a butt can on the third floor directly over that spot, in front of the rooms for a couple Recon airmen.  The third floor is important because that's the only floor they could have been on to get them as far into the grass as they were.  So now I get to have some fun with those two airmen.
