Topic: Does anybody have some advice on basic?


I enlisted last june and my ship date is starting to come quickly. I was just wondering whether anyone had any advice or tips for basic.

Welcome to the forum.

Any more specific questions? Just make sure you run a lot before you go and remember that you can take a lot more than your body thinks you can.

I was just wondering if you guys could tell me how your basic was or what I could be expecting. My friend went to basic last summer, but he hasn't been much help.

I didn't actually go to basic, I went to a bastardized four week version of it for ROTC, so I don't know how much help I'll be, but if you can think of any specific questions, I'll do my best to help you out.

and what ever they ask you to do ... just do it .. never question the orders... INSTANT OBIDIENCE TO ORDERS..

clean a toilet with your toothbrush..

polish the floor with your underwear..
good to go ..

To the young man needing some advice about basic..

the number 1 rule is control thyself. You have now obtained a military bearing with no idea how to rotate it: just watch what you say, when you say it, and how you say it.

the number 2 rule is..a drill or technical instructor is to be obeyed. right then. quickly and efficently, as fast or Faster than a command from your father or mother rates.

the number 3 rule...your group is only as good as the weakest link in that group. If you see the weak link, help it. if you are the weak link, ask for help.

no one ever died by drowning in sweat...dishwashing does build character and commaderie...and tuck this in a secret place of your heart and know...there is a world beyond basic. Good luck young man.
