Many thanks to Page Johnson Castrodale, Cary's current hatchmate's wife (current roommate, not Castrodale's current wife of course), for getting and sharing these with all the loved ones part of the OCS Class 15-10 Family & Friends Facebook Group. I just had to share via the blog too. Enjoy.

HAGEN - Chipmunk - was yelled at for chewing in the chow hall after standing because he “found food” in his cheek
HALL - Hey guys… Homework… - says this a lot
HARVEY - Band Geek - participated in band over sports despite being gigantic
HENDERSON - Left Aye - RPT’ed by having to run laps in the gym shouting “aye aye, sir” every time her left foot struck the deck

HOADLEY - Mr. Furious - has anger management problems

LAMB - German - was instructed to count in German despite not speaking the language (Cary said the drill instructor actually spoke German and knew the guy was BS'ing him)

PALLIE - Band Aid - didn't want to curl his finger into a fist for fear his band aid would fall off

POHTILLA - Sicko - had a horrible cough for the first few weeks 

SANTIAGO-FIGUERO - Head Call - requires many head calls 

SONNICHSEN - You’re Fired - has been fired from more positions than anyone else in the company

STROUP - Hairdo - used to have a very distinctive haircut

SUN - Mr. Miyagi - always has a lot of wisdom to pass down about evolutions

ZAMUDIO - Brain Matter - was RPTed by running laps in the gym until he “found his brain matter”

Cary said since you have to say everything ballistic-ally, aka really loudly, everyone's mistakes are even funnier. And then there's the fact that you can't laugh or else you'll get in trouble. So picture saying, "Sir, a seagull pooped on me!! May I go to the head to wash it off?!!" Or, "oine, deutch, tretch!!!" That's fake German. And then don't laugh. Which we all know is even easier when you're not supposed to. I couldn't even read these and not laugh out loud.
