It's meant to test your resolve to be a US Marine and give you basic knowledge, nothing more, nothing less. It will suck, the amount of suckage depends on your attitude. Gut check yourself and do it. In the Fleet you'll do things that suck much. much more than recruit training.

Oh and pay no attention to the Pom's who are trying to scare you here with the 6 month basic training. They're slow it takes that long to explain which end the bullet comes out of and left from right.

Probably explains why British forces stand out amongst the Yanks.

Yeah, POMs is an Australian phrase - you are 42RM and I claim my 5.

The worst part about boot camp is the lack of personal freedom and privacy. Some of it will be fun. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. I did a pretty good job of flying under the radar and not drawing attention to myself. I still remember when the drill sergeant was passing out mail (i think 6 or 7 weeks into boot camp) and when I came up to get mine he said, "Who the f#%k are you?" You will certainly get their attention at some point though, hopefully it will be rarely.
