A custom that prevailed through military basic training was
when you had a recruit who was throwing the entire squadron behind
in all aspects of training to the point where the Drill Instructor
would take the person's faults out on the rest of the unit, during
quiet hours members of the unit would surprise the recruit by
throwing a blanket over him and holding him down while others
would beat him to inspire him towards motivation during drills the
next day.
