  1. I sure as shit wouldn't expect marine boot camp to ALLEVIATE said tendencies.

  2. You'd be surprised. I was pretty depressed/suicidal before I joined the Marines, but boot camp made me into a responsible, disciplined man. Dropping out of boot camp half-way through though and you probably will be suicidal. It's not good to leave that place after the: "You're a worthless puke" part but before the "We're going to build you back up" part.

  3. We had a guy in Basic (Army) who tried to kill himself by wrapping the cord of the floor buffer around his neck and tossing it out the window. The cord, being just a few years shy of being as old as God, broke and the buffer dropped 2 stories to shatter on the concrete below.

    He was seized by the MPs, served 6 months for destruction of property, then made to re-cycle through Basic.
