posting because some family took us in for christmas, I leave in 20 minutes
They let you leave? Can't suck that much then.
how bad can coastguard boot be?
in order of difficulty from what i'v heard
CG and the marines are the only ones that give you leave right after you complete boot.
Navy bootcamp is not hard at all, it is one big mindgame. Physically we got "beat" everyday but even then that was mostly confined to our berthing area. It has changed a lot. Nowadays the barracks buildings have the chow halls built into them so you don't even have to march to chow. And we have A/C and DVD players, TV's, and speaker systems built-in heh.
woah woah....army boot is easier than navy? what.
lol ive heard alot of different stories about army/navy boot...widds is right its alot easier now but some years ago it was pretty comparable to army boot
The Army Military Police Corps and School of Infantry are VERY difficult schools/boot camps/osut
I talk to a lot of prior Army and Marine Corp that joined the USCG and they go through a shortened boot camp... and they all say that the normal USCG boot camp fucking sucks.
I got through USCG boot last July and it was pretty fucking terrible.
Father was 11 years enlisted Navy and 14 years Marine Corp Officer (Major).
USCG Boot is no joke like a lot of people think.
Original poster... I find it difficult to find a better group of people than the residents of Cape May. They are all so grateful for our service. Enjoy boot, stay squared and you will be through in no time.
Don't break anything on the new obsticle... the finally named it... "The Crippler" hahaha
I got done with Navy boot in October. If you are in decent/good shape, don't do stupid shit, and stayed squared away its a breeze.
PT was minimal at best.
Folding and stowing of clothing was exceptional. Attention to retail...I mean detail.
As far as I know, Army is the only service that shuts down basic training for christmas. damned if I know why.
Yes bunk drills were in full swing.
SK going to seabee readiness course then NMCB 5. Reporting to Port Hueneme tomorrow.
Thought you said SH for a sec I was gonna tell you to fill the god damn vending machines
Not that my rate is the most thrilling, but I actually think they taught the SH's how to fill vending machines at "A" school.
AF boot is a joke. Seriously.
9 Years active AF and I agree with this statement.
went to bct(ft.jackson summer of 2003)
and infantry osut(summer of 2008)
osut was more physically demanding. bct was more inspection crazy... when i got to osut i was inserted at week 7 for just the infantry "ait" portion, and immediately set out to making my wall locker inspection ready. the pvts were all like wtf spc? we dont do that shit. i was like and squared my shit way.... but yea, not one damn locker inspection in 7 weeks. ridiculous.
but it was all a waste of time for me as i didnt learn a single thing at infantry osut. seriously. the drill sgts had me teaching the pvts battle drills and helping them out. lol. being prior service was ftw. you can get away with anything when you aint afraid at basic... i snuck off several times to go off post to the bk lounge and get some eats. no one ever missed me. (that was outside of my extra free time for being prior service) lol.
any one else go to bct and osut? what about 2 different services basic training?
You earn 5 days leave in USCG boot and you can take it if you wish. Not sure about other branches.
10 days for Marines, dont you get leave during army basic?
I had 2 weeks leave immediately after Navy boot camp...of course that was in 93.
I came in here to say that
