Who gets told "Thank you for yelling at my child"?

Posted by Hannah Hurley on

Drill Instructors at MCRD Parris Island and San Diego, that's who!


When parents and friends arrive at Family Day they see their loved one for the first time since they left for boot camp. The awe at the transformation that has taken place over the twelve weeks that have passed is sometimes overwhelming. There are many factors in this transformation, but the consistent, dedicated efforts (i.e. yelling) of Drill Instructors can not be understated. Or forgotten.

It is our hope that when you give the Yelling card to a Drill Instructor either at MCRD Parris Island or at MCRD San Diego you will make a connection with them that lets them know you respect their incredibly hard work and amazing accomplishment with your specific Marine. 

It's that kind of connection we hope every greeting card we create will inspire in both the giver and receiver of 2MyHero cards. We're convinced that for all the yelling that Drill Instructors have to do daily, they also possess a sense of humor that will appreciate this card in particular.

2MyHero cards are not only available online, but also at select retail locations. Our longest standing relationship is with a store in Beaufort, South Carolina, The Corps Store near MCRD Parris Island. The buyer there has been the catalyst for the creation of several of the cards in the line. Ms. Simpson asked us to create Thank You cards for the Drill Instructors at Parris Island. Yelling and Sir, YES SIR were the first two cards we designed specifically for Drill Instructors.

Yelling came first. We loved her response to this card! "This is hilarious! I love it! But not everyone will think it's funny. You should probably create one that is not sarcastic." So we did. This is still our favorite though.

2MyHero works hard to creatively reach beyond the typical imagery found on greeting cards for military. We want to express a depth of feeling and connection that will help bridge the gap between those of us who are civilians to the men and women we love who are or were at one time in military service.

Yelling is perfectly appropriate to send a Drill Instructor at graduation from basic training, after your child has moved up the ranks, and you want to go back and thank them for the influence they had, or even when said Drill Instructor is retiring from The Corps, how funny would it be to give them this card? 

2MyHero sells cards individually as well as in six packs (a mix of six cards including white square flap envelopes). Yelling is only sold in the USMC Collection six pack Twelve weeks.  

If you know a young man or woman heading off to boot camp at Parris Island or San Diego, you'll want to purchase one of the six packs so you can encourage them at every stage - during bootcamp, at graduation and depending on how often you write them at boot camp, you may have one or two left over to send after graduation on their first assignment.

All six packs include one card to give to a Drill Instructor. A Marine now and Still a lady include Sir, YES SIR. All six packs and eight packs of are also available on Amazon

Maybe you know, or are a Marine who is way beyond boot camp in terms of their military career. You will find our packs of Thank You cards (blank inside) very useful! 2MyHero wants to help you build bridges of appreciation also.

We've learned that military members are very loyal to their branch of service. Especially US Marines! They are our best customers!
