    The officer told the recruits

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    The officer told the recruits he was going to drill laziness out of them.

    Re: The officer told the recruits

    I'd add either "the" or "their" before "laziness". I prefer the definite article.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
