Definition of a DI

Hard-bitten, short-tempered, deep-voiced, screaming, seemingly-psychotic, unpatronizing, impatient, deeply-devoted and fully-dedicated Marine NCO who must work his magic on Momma's Boy --- who possesses eighteen years of cumulative selfishness and "Me-ism" --- in order to begin the makings of a disciplined Marine who will stand and fight when every inborn instinct tells him to run, and who, himself, will one day be a Drill Instructor to whom other youngsters "surrender body and spirit to harsh instructors and receive a soul."

The Drill Instructor's Creed

"These recruits are entrusted to my care.
I will train them to the best of my ability.
I will develop them into smartly disciplined, physically fit, basically trained Marines, thoroughly indoctrinated in love of Corps and Country.
I will demand of them, and demonstrate by my own example, the highest standards of personal conduct, morality and professional skill."
