There is nothing wrong with a little friendly competition, but Staff Sgt. Willis is taking it to another level. Initial Drill is less than two days away and he is already taking credit for winning!
Remember when I mentioned that Marines are extremely competitive? Well Staff Sgt. Willis, Chief Drill Instructor for Follow series, proves my point to a T.
He just started a “series war” if you ask me. Who said he can claim Initial Drill before it ever happens? He did, clearly.
Here’s the scoop: I asked him what his thoughts were on his recruits progress. His strong opinions didn’t go unnoticed as he proceeded to tell me that Follow is going to dominate in Initial Drill this Saturday and take home the trophy. How do you feel about THAT Lead series?
My opinion? I don’t know Staff Sgt. Willis… Lead MIGHT have it in the bag, but I can’t take sides. Maybe we should leave the judging to the Drill Master!
