No matter what you do it will not be right. If they single someone out and start smoking him join in. I know it sounds silly but it shows a we all sink or swim. And remember uphold and defend the constitution not follow orders.

Well good for you! There is only one problem with that, you will have rank and be squad leader. Everything that goes wrong - you will get to hear about it.

You MUST go to basic in shape, both mentally and physically. Trust everyone who has told you this. Having rank would be twice as bad if you fall out on runs or can't pass the PT tests.

One thing that no one has mentioned, work on getting up at 4:30 AM and rolling out of the rack ready to go. Before breakfast you will have squared away your bunk and locker, cleaned the bay / or latrine. Spent an hour doing calisthenics, ran 3-5 miles, spent an hour or so in drill formation. Then you get to eat breakfast. Realistically you will have 15-20 to do your three "S"'s, and do your chores before falling in after waking up. It would be wise to get into that habit before you report.

Good luck, God bless and I thank you for your future service!!

Ok good luck

Do not take anything you want to keep. Like a pocket knife that was your grandpas or anything like that. They will make you throw it away and you will never see it again.
