Marine Mystique is an autobiographical work, where I seek to render an account of my memories and experiences as a Marine Corps Drill Instructor (D.I.).
The book is framed with descriptions and the jargon (Explicit language), related to life as a Marine D. I. It is filled with depictions of individuals, conversations and my inner thoughts and emotions about the training of recruits as they strive to become Marines.
Discover the reason it is so important for a D. I. To learn the ability to mask his own emotions. Learn what the making of a Marine is all about, from the D.I.s point of view.
Feel the progression of pride as you turn each page, the pride that is the United States Marine Corps. Their Motto of Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful) and then know the Mystique and the kinship that is so strong, that these men and women are ready to die for one another. It all starts at Boot Camp and the D. I. And that is what this book is all about!
