Me and a buddy from the same RSS were the only 2 (of 5 individuals) who made it through MEPS. We swore into the Delayed Entry Program 48 hours ago for the Marine Corps. My ship out date to MCRD is October 2-- active duty.
I understand that nothing will prepare me for boot camp down at MCRD-San Diego but any helpful pointers you experienced Marines who have already gone through what I am about to would be greatly appreciated.
Some background on myself:
Pull Ups in 2 minutes: 20+
Crunches in 2 minutes: 90-100
3 Mile Run: 22:00-23:30
- I am 22 years old
- I have a B.A. in Criminal Justice from Washington State University
(I know this will get me unwanted attention from DI's down as a recruit)
- Just waiting for my security clearance to pass
- I am wanting to go into the field of Infantry
Thank you all for your service and I will look forward to hearing every piece of information that is offered my way! If there is anything else regarding myself that you want to know in order to give me some better pointers then just ask away.
