Remember the early days of the Covenant's Cannon Fodder war grunts? Remember when they would consistently die at your hands and shear awesomeness? HA! Remember when they would cray in fear as you took down their leader? Ah, good times. Good Times. Well, remember the rare times you, yourself, would fall at their numbers or that lucky grenade stick the little guy would get? Not so much fun was it? Well, not until they would suddenly call dibs on your helmet. Then it was just funny because you couldn't help but picture what a grunt would look like in a Spartan helmet. Well, now you can relive that memory every day! That's right, one of those little buggers actually got the helmet. And boy was he happy! Sadly, after this photo was take, he learned the helmet was stuck and he starved to death. Don't let his death be in vain. Remember him and spread his joy to others. Order Today!

It may be taken offensively by U.S. Marine Corps Drill Instructors to be referred to as 'Drill Sergeants', which is strictly an Army term in the American military, just as Marines may take offense to being called "soldiers". This is considered to be a grievous insult if done intentionally. The only acceptable address of a drill instructor by a recruit is "sir" or "ma'am." At Officer Candidates School (OCS), candidates are instructed by Drill Instructors who have already served a tour at one of the Recruit Depots. Officer candidates address their instructors as "Sergeant Instructor" (and rank and last name), or "Platoon Sergeant" (and rank and last name). The OCS Platoon sergeant is comparable to the Senior Drill Instructor in an enlisted recruit platoon. In the initial phase of training, officer candidates are trained in almost the same manner, and by the same people, as enlisted Marines, with slight differences reflecting the difference between the responsibilities the candidates will have as second lieutenants and those the recruits will have as junior Marines.
