    Should still be based off what we do. 1.5 mile run in a certain time. Under 29 you have to be faster than 13:36 to pass. But, you have to score above a 75% on all components.

    Just go there and plug away. It will show the minimums you have to have in order to pass.

    Here is my take on a few of the things stated by Cypherian. Overall that was very helpful and detailed.

    Finally, got my "first 4x4" in a Tacoma. Barcelona Red w/ JBL & Entune - Then traded it in on a Ridgeline.
    . . . ^ ^ ^ . . . Some excellent advice above ... and a lot of the info. is generic to all branches of boot camp and is also somewhat timeless.

    I especially remember "sliding in & out of my bunk" and it only took 5 to 10 seconds to tighten it up ... :D
    (being quick makes you first to S.S. & S. and etc.)
    Many of the others were just starting to make their bunks from zero with someone yelling at them.

    This part may sound weird ... but my brain developed an "internal alarm clock" too ... and I was up 15 minutes ahead of everyone else and this helped a lot too.

    Good luck and you have a zillion times more info than I did ... when I went through.

    HOWEVER ... Part of the experience is ... NOT ... knowing what is coming next ... and dealing with things as they come to you.

    Yes, it is a buddy program. You can both do it and it will allow you guys to have similar jobs to be at the same base. I was going to do it with a friend in the Army, but in the end I didn't join the Army. A friend of mine said he was supposed to do the program with a friend, but he went to Basic first and when everybody was asked if they were a part of the buddy program he was to afraid to say something so it didn't work out for him. So the moral of the story is tell your recruier then one of you will probably go to basic first, but you or he NEEDS to tell the MTI's at basic.

    i didn't fully understand that... so we can sign up in the buddy program together and have similar jobs on the same base...but they could ship one of us off to basic earlier than the other?

    Yes, but in the end you should both end up at the same base.

    As many have said before "There is no "I" in "Team".

    But as a former Instructor/LPO/FDC for the Navy, I will add this codicil: There may be no "I" in Team, but there are a couple of YOU's ("U") in "FUCKED UP!"

    One of my favorite sayings from back in the day....

    Thats what it is designed for. If it still exists it should still be in effect the way I described. The point is to keep some people together through their AF career.
