A special birthday in boot camp

I entered basic in early March. I never gave it a thought that my birthday was later on that month. It was just another day to me. But my drill instructors didn’t let me forget! They made it quite memorable. How DARE I have a birthday on the same day as the senior drill instructor! For THAT offense, I had to do extra sit ups, pull ups, run laps around the tarmac, etc., all in front of the rest of my platoon and hounded by the drill instructors every step of the way! ...happy birthday to me, huh?...
