An answer re the Navy basic (as far as I can answer anything about the Navy
), it's entirely different than the Army's and the Marines, my buddies in the Navy said they did mostly firefighting training, besides the physical work that every service does.
About being a 19K (tank crewman), what made you decide that?
Did you ever run across a LCPL David ***** when you were in Iraq? He's a Marine truck driver. (I know it's a long shot but we got a saying "It's a small Army" and I figured the Marines were the same.
