Recalling one of the first few days of <acronym title="Basic Military Training">BMT</acronym>.
The <acronym title="Physical Training Instructor">PTI</acronym> appears. Before he is within 100 meters of your platoon he is already doing the standard blowing of his temper. The platoon hits the ground with a gadzillion pushups.
He walks closer. Still in pushup position, I only see his shoes.
"Get the *?!* up!"
We stand up, still a little dizzy from the pushups. Exhaustion hasn't quite hit us yet. I take a quick look at the name sewn on his shirt.
S.A. Tan.
It's going to be a long three months.
