I went to jump school 18 years ago. Try and enjoy it if you can.

The PT is a joke. Volunteer for the gig pit so you won't fall asleep. Keep anything you don't want to find walking around with someone else locked up.

Have fun, be safe, remember, you have the rest of your life to open your reserve if your primary fails ......

for basic training? Best advice: Shut up, do as you're told, and do not stick out

In american airborne training do you guys do milling? It's basically where each recruit pairs up and fights for one minute with the other guy in a ring. There aren't many rules except that you are not allowed to defend any blows coming at you and you must show more aggression than the other guy.

airborne school is lame, if you go well, try to stay awake. There isn't any milling there, in fact if you even start talking shit to somebody you're likely to get into trouble. Just go do it and get the hell out fast.
