14 weeks 4 days of One Station Unit Training (Basic and AIT all together), Fort Sill, OK
boot camp was like that. except more hardcore. less moving. more discipline.
and oh yeah, we didn't need sand bags to shoot straight.
lol one kid is scared shitless, the other is moving like a bitch, and third is at parade rest.
I guess thats why your called hero
we save the world. marines leading the way, hooah?
no it was a joke. i think only my unit does it. lead the way. hooah.
i was kidding though, the army is filled with shit bags but the staff and the special forces are top of their shit.
True dat, my National Guard unit is kinda But we play dodgeball for PT and we're having an Xmas party next month!
That's why I've been thinking about going to the active component with a better MOS
yeah and you can tell by looking at still pics
they are totally optional to use on the ranges. i never use them...
Yeah I had a couple buddies down training at Fort Leonard Wood (Army basic training) for the Marine Corps H/E operations MOS school. They say that Army basic training is completely nasty. Their platoon usually physicly runs into the Army recruits during formation runs. The Marine Platoon Sgts get into shit with their drill Sgts all the time.
And why is it that they get "weekend liberty" at BASIC?
So where did you go to basic training?
Don't say Benning, but where in Benning.
the "hajji"s face is priceless

Looks like fun. Pictures were not allowed at Ft Knox.
I've never heard of that. I certainly didn't get it.
All those pictures are screenshots from the video they offer near the end of your cycle. When I went through they never said anything about no picture, but it was kind of a moot point since our cameras were locked up with our civilian stuff. Some of those DS's in the pics look like mine, but I seriously doubt any of them are still there since it's been more than six years since I went through. A Btry 1/19 FA
ETA: We sure as hell didn't get weekend liberty during basic.
They arrive in horse trailers?
Pretty much, they called them "cattle cars." The reception battalion is on the opposite side of Ft. Sill from the basic training units so they stuffed you in those to haul you over.

I was there in 96 not too long after harmony church got shut down. When I was there 1-19 was called candyland. 1-50 was hell's kitchen and 2-54 was devils playground
No Fort Benning, no care. C 2/47 > your BCT unit.
Is that what it's really like?
