Apparently the US Army now uses a form of punishment called Reinforcement by Indorsement (RBI), which is essentially having a soldier write a 1000 word essay for errors in judgement.

This soldier forgot his rain poncho, and wrote this for his RBI essay.

An ESSAY? What has the Army come to? I my day, 50 pushups or a few laps around the compound in full gear helped reinforce oversights in judgement. Next they will be tucking the troops in at night and giving them warm milk and cookies. Jeeeeze!!

In basic my Drill Sgt caught me sitting on the barracks washer. When asked if I would do this on my washer at home I of course replied in all honesty "Yes drill Sgt, I would". Wrong answer!!! At this time the DI's were no longer allowed to swear at the trainees. I guess this was the beginning of the downhill slide. :)

No offense but I would probably choose to do either of those instead of writing a 1000 word essay. I can either take three minutes to run around a track twice, a minute or two to do fourty pushups, or spend an hour or two writing an essay.

The push ups and sit ups are still used SGT Saunders, but the essay is used in combination with them. It's effective punishment because it takes the poor bastards a couple of hours to write the essay and that's after we've worked there butts off for a couple of hours doing additional duty. Plus, not to be rude, but a lot of these young privates could use as much practice as possible when it comes to expressing themselves with the written word. My CSM actually spell checks the essays so these young privates can learn the basic English skills necessary for when they are NCOs and have to effectively counsel their soldiers in writing. Plus, it's just damn funny to hear a CSM yelling at a couple of trouble making soldiers over the inproper usage of the apostraphe or semi-colon. :lol:
