The Marines, I uttered under my breath, are turning soft.
While touring the Marine Corps' recruit training depot last week with educators from across Kentucky and West Virginia, the Air Force veteran in me couldn't help but reflect on my own boot camp experiences while listening to drill instructors describe what they can - and can't - do to train recruits.
The drill instructors said the days of yelling cuss words at recruits that would make, well, a Marine blush, are long gone.
Running for miles in the rain and mud? Gone.
