Several weeks in and we all knew we weren't supposed to have any tobacco products sent in the mail. So one day during mail call D.S. brought out a box with at least 4 logs of SKOAL tobacco in it. Obviously someone was doing this on purpose.Can't think of dudes name but D.S. gathered us around and said, "All right privates! You know the rule on getting tobacco sent to you in the mail"At this point we were all thinking "The pushup drill Sergeant!". But something really awesome happened next.This was the point in basic where the D.S. became a little more friendly so to speak? D.S. told PVT, he could keep all the dip if he could do 100 flutter kicks in cadence and 100 jumping jacks. But that was easy, too easy we thought.


D.S. said "If you can do them with a whole can packed in your mouth you can keep it all"So the Private accepted the challenge. He put the whole can of dip in his mouth and proceeded to do the flutter kick in cadence. Now we hadn't had any nicotine for several weeks. About 40-50 in his face turned bright red and then it turned some color I can't even begin describe. His eyes looked like they were gonna pop out of his head!Everyone was cheering him on and laughing. PVT jumped up and threw up in a trash can the drills had us bring over. I had the feeling this wasn't the first time they had done this. So the private never did get to keep the dip! The more jacked up thing about it, some of the guys were picking dip out of the trash can later and chewing it!Now I chew, but hell no!Thanks for reading, hope you got a chuckle out of it.
