The Name They Will Never Forget

05/05/2018   SFC Bradford Griffith

The Army offers a near infinite number of career paths to the few citizen-volunteers that qualify to serve. The Surgeons at Walter Reed, tank mechanics at Ft. Hood, and Special Forces operators around the world have one thing in common; they all remember the name of their Drill Sergeant.  Without hesitation, they will recall not just the name, but tell you a story about their most memorable Drill Sergeant. 

Only the top 10 percent of Non-Commissioned Officers in the Army are selected to attend the United States Army Drill Sergeant Academy at Fort Jackson, S.C.  Of those, even fewer will graduate, don the iconic Campaign Hat, and earn the title “Drill Sergeant”. 

Do you think you have what it takes?

Will yours be the name they never forget?


Are you or do you know an outstanding NCO that is ready to accept the challenge?  We are actively recruiting eligible Drill Sergeant Candidates and we need your help.  If you are locked in tight, know a squared away Soldier that would be a great asset to our mission, or have a buddy that is looking for a change, talk to them about joining our ranks!  Maybe you are in a support role and have been thinking about making the leap into something new, challenging and exciting?   What are you waiting for? The time has never been better to make the move.
