No 3d BN, No Care
I've heard 1st BN was stricter on preaching discipline and 3rd was simply to kill you nonstop
3rd bn I company
so yeah overall.. i'm not going to lie. i didn't really think it was too tough.
the hardest part by far imo was dealing with other dumbass recruits in my platoon. you know the mofos who can't stand still on line for even 3 minutes without twitching or the ones that NEVER shut up. physically it was an absolute joke. luckily for me i was in pretty good shape going into boot camp so no troubles there. the days sometimes were long and missing home (well at least just wanted to get off the island and being free) was inevitable. haha its funny to look back on now and remembering how much i was sweating and how nervous i was pulling up in front of those great silver hatches with the yellow foot prints. oh yeah processing was terrible.. totally forgot about that.. talk about sleep deprivation. oh and the gas chamber (i effed that one up real good and caught about 40 seconds of repeated lung fulls of CS).. anyways good stuff down there. helped me find myself in many different ways. anyone who is contemplating join the Marines here my advice: DO ET!
nice gas chamber, love that thing
wait till you get OC sprayd
Fuck OC spray. That shit is horrible!
yea, boot isn't as hard as people make it out to be. Once you get over the whole "i miss home" phase first week or two, it actually gets fun. The worse part for me was the fawkin cold. Having to take water bowl showers out in the field at night sucked royal balls. Standing POA under a cold shower for 10 minutes is no fun either.
3rd phase was fuckin
Yeah, I don't know if all the platoons, companies, etc.. did this, but they turned off the hot water the entire time we were there. It was funny looking back at it now. Some of us would only wash our pits and balls and gtfo!
