During Basic Training there were two methods that I experienced. One was the Please I can’t breathe shirt Motivation Platoon. Those that were unable to adapt or didn’t want to adopt would be sent to the Motivational Platoon where life was pure hell. Constance PT, DC (Drill and Ceremonies/marching), and strict discipline. I was a platoon guide each trainee platoon would have one of the trainees as an acting SGT that wore a black armband with stripes attached. Every morning I had to make sure everyone was out of the barracks for the morning formation. Then I would stand in front of my platoon and report to the 1SGT. During the 6th week of eight, I saw a trainee tying all of his she laces together along with his tie and belt.
Please I can’t breathe shirt, hoodie, sweater and v-neck t-shirt
Best Please I can’t breathe shirt
As each platoon reported, “sir, 1st platoon present and accounted for.” Or if one was at sick Please I can’t breathe shirt call, “Sir, all present with two men on sick call.” Then the 1SGT would inquire about their names. My turn, “sir all accounted for expecting PVT Welsh.” “where is PVT Welsh?” “Sir, he’s in the barracks and I believe he’s going to hang himself.” Every Drill Sergeant and the company staff ran into the barracks.
