    I was thinking about going for Navy OCS. I know it would be a nightmare, I've done tons of research on it. I'm 27 and my life is fucking boring. I feel like I'm treading water and wasting my life away. I'm in pretty good shape and i can already do all of the minimum PT requirements easily, minus the swimming. I'm just worried about the mental torture. I sometimes get frazzled easily and I can't think straight when stressed. I was just curious if anyone has been through it already.

    I think i'm going to meet with a recruiter in the next couple weeks. I'd be fuking my employer because i'm in the middle of some huge projects, but oh well. I'm just sick of being bored and depressed.

    dont talk to a regular recruiter, they'll talk you into enlisting. look up the officer recruiters in your area. the mental aspect is going to be the biggest part of most military training so learn to deal with stress.

    Its all in your head. You learn to deal with lots of shit. They wont start beasting you right off the bat, but they work you up to dealing with physical pain, stress, sleep deprivation and all the fun stuff.

    No, Im Canadian. Ive done our basic course, basic infantry course and now im training to be an intelligence operator. Our basic is all elements (army, navy and AF) together so its pretty easy, but you still learn lots about being on time and such :mamoru:

    I had never done very well in stress situations due simply to lack of exposure to them, but I learned and adapted.

    We've had Marine infantrymen up here on training who looked impressed at how shitty our infantry recruits were treated. Impossible timings, impossible tasks combined with immediate and totally unproportional consequences for failure makes it a fun course. But I payed attention and passed.

    Military training is all about paying attention to your instructors, time management (this will prevent you from getting as stressed out as others), leadership and not giving up.

    I've been through Army OCS, I applied for Navy OCS but they were in a growth freeze and weren't taking everyone, but I completed the entire app. Navy has specific officer recruiters, unlike the Army.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Ya, I'm starting to get the feeling that it's REALLY tough to get into Navy OCS. I'll give it a shot. I don't really see why they wouldn't accept me besides my age.
