    Well I mean technically you guys fall under Dept of Homeland security. And don't get all hyped up by watching the Guardian, there is no way a Navy guy would get beat up by CG.

    ok military is military. Thanks for serving.

    From my army boot camp experience i will tell you this. You do not want to stand out. If the drill sergeant knows who you are, that is bad!!!

    Second, you better hurry your ass up all the time. My platoon was fuckin retards and there was always a couple people late to formation. One night they were late, the drill sergeant got pissed, and we had to run back and forth putting all kinds of different clothes on and shit then get in formation. I think we had on our shower shoes, long green socks, pt shorts, rain jacket and gas mask at that formation.

    3rd. Dont spit on the ground. Our DS made us pick it back up and put it in our pocket.

    4th. Dont call your DS drill sarge. haha

    5th. Just have a good time with it. Its 8 weeks away from friends and family, but you will make new friends in basic. They are your team, and your family for 2 months. Stick together and get the job and the training done.

    Good luck

    The best advice I was ever given;

    It's just a game. Just play the game and you'll be all right. If they tell you to push, push. It's not hard. They yell, you follow. No sweat.

    Oh yeah, don't do anything dumb like smoking weed a couple of days before you ship out. We had a guy get booted in week 7. The tests came in and he went out.

    How old are you?

    2 more things to keep in mind...during on base liberty and the class party, DO NOT eat lots of candy and greasy food. If you are underage, during off base liberty DO NOT get drunk. had 3-4 people from my company get booted after off base liberty for throwing a party in a hotel room and getting drunk underage. Be smart. And that goes for the rest of your career too! If you get Kodiak Alaska out of boot, hit me up.

    Those are some good stories. Back in 93 I wanted to be a Coastie so bad but the wait was 2 years for a reserve slot. And soooooo the Corps got me. My best friend in boot was a LA Sheriff and the DI's knew it. They thrashed him all the time. He'd already played the game. However in 3rd phase after saving all the cocoa and kool aid packets from the MRE's and storing them in his foot locker, the DI who especially liked fucking with him found these after discovering he forgot to secure the foot locker. The DI then opened his rack and poured all the powder all over his sheets, fixed his rack and went to the duty office (inside the squad bay). When Taps played and we were in our racks the DI was close by, my friend felt all the powder and started to get out of the rack, the DI then quietly told him to stay put and to have "sweet dreams". I almost fell out of the top bunk. That was pretty fucking funny.
