Inside the Mind of a Marine Drill Instructor is a book that takes you through the heart, mind, body and soul of an United States Marine Drill Instructor who truly loves his country and God. I have personally witnessed a few seconds of this drill instructor treating me like a Marine recruit, and I still shudder at the thought of having to live 90 days of boot camp as a Marine recruit. So step inside the mind of Marine Drill Instructor, Sergeant McDugle, and you will gain a new respect for all Marines. This book is a literary wish come true.
