My beloved drill sergeant.

I will always remember my time in Infantry School. I loved it. I hated it when I was there, but looking back at the people I met there, the moments that made it all worth it, and the experiences that made me who I am, it a an awesome time.

One person that made my time at Fort Benning, GA, worth was Drill Sergeant (SSG) Wallis. He was the man. At first he was a jerk and an asshole like all the other drill sergeants. However, along the way, he became a mentor, a leader, a fellow soldier, and a man I would still today trust my life with.

Funny thing is that my fellow Infantrymen brothers sent me this picture, which is actually of Drill Sergeant Wallis. YES. My drill sergeant has become an Infantry-Facebook-Pic-Icon. I love this guy and this picture depicts so much about the things that make him a great soldier and drill sergeant.

Drill Sergeant Wallis

Yes, this is literally the man I called “Drill Sergeant.”
