Just work out a bit. Do push ups and sit ups to help you get fit real qiuck. Don't think you can know you can.

I think this is actually one of the most important things, not only in basic training, but throughout your entire military career..

It's incredible what you can achieve if you really want to!

i have to agree with the working out.. go there with a metal image of a 24 hr gym.. because you will be working out 24 hrs a day .. well almost..

get with some of the army bubbas to let you know the stuff like weapons and classes you should prep for.

marine bootcamp is mostly PT..discipline..PT...weapons.. PT.. yelling ... and some more PT. and they throw some admin classes also..
but i remember the yelling and PT alot more.

Keep your head low. If they don't know your name, you will be much much better off. I went through basic at Ft. Benning from May to August 02. Work out before you go, and your life will be much easier.

Some good advice was given to me by a fellow shipmate...

ATTENTION TO DETAIL

Make sure everything they ask you to do is exactly how they want you to do it.

If someone in your company is messing up help them out...they may drop all of you for one persons screw up.

Have fun,

They do that because we train as a unit...and a unit needs to be able to work together as one. That is one of the main purposes of marching.

Trust me though...if the whole unit gets droped because of one persons screw up hes gonna catch a lot of crap from his fellow shipmates.

Are you stationed in Sweden?
