    Ahhh... basic training.... so much fun... Keep calm, keep cool, do what you're told. It ends eventually. Don't bring any pictures of friends and/or family, leave the folder at home, etc. etc.

    We actually had one dude show up with a bowling ball... yes, that's right... his recruiter told him the base had a bowling alley that he might be able to use during basic. Wow. I mean really... it WAS an Air Force base but cmon.

    You are not paranoid if They are actually out to get you, however, They probably are not and you probably are.

    At SOME point you are going to think " God. How can I do this?" Just keep telling yourself that millions of others have done it. Stay safe!

    Good luck to you. I had a drill sergeant that said " Son, don't let me know your name, if I know your name I know you F$$$$D up. Just don't take it personally when it's your day to get picked on. You will laugh about it when it is all over. I made some great friends that I stay in contact with since 1971.

    First of all, thank you for doing what many people would never think of doing, which is considering enlisting in the Armed Forces to serve this great country.

    Basic Training will be the beginning of the rest of your life, regardless if you make the Army a career or not. Make sure you do what you are told and when you think that you can't complete the task at hand DON'T GIVE UP - KEEP TRYING. You will do well if you can play the game. Good luck and enjoy the ride...

    Thanks for your choice to serve...

    Special Note: DO NOT volunteer for anything in basic training.

    Good luck and thank you for your service! As has been said, don't volunteer for anything. Pay attention to details, and remember no matter how miserable you might feel at any particular moment, you will look back on it fondly in the years from now.
