I went after my sophmore year to area 12s in Kings Bay Florida and I graduated without too much trouble other than my roomate was clueless.
The hardest thing I had to face was the sleep deprivation, on day one when we arrived I had firewatch from 0300 to 0400, and bascally one hour to sleep before we had to rise at 0500 for the company run. But basically our relief never woke up, and showed so following our general orders me and my room mate was left our there till time to rise, and did not sleep until the next morning after 0200, well I dint anyway, I had to baby sit my room mate cause he dd not know anything about being at leadership and I wish I was understating that, I had to put away and clean all my stuff and his cause I did not trust him to do it right.
All in all if I could go back I would!
