MIL Friend broke at Army basic.... is now going Marines.

    And he thinks they (boot camps) are going to be almost identical. I told him he's probably going to be doing a lot more push ups & go through a lot more pain in Marine boot than Army basic (in which he tore some muscle in his arm and got sent home) but he doesn't believe me. He's like 6'5 @ 160lbs.

    I'm a Marine and I can definitely tell the difference between the two branches when we're around each other but it's hard to get through to him. Ah well... stupid poolee. :drool:


    Anyone have any cross-over experience?

    If Army boot fucked him up, he will probably reinjure himself in Marine boot. Marine boot is more strenuous is some aspects, and with the longer duration he is more prone to be reinjured.

    If the everyday training doesn't get him, the crucible will almost definitely get him, assuming he's not completely healed.
     
  7. 6'5 @ 160? That is like so thin. I am 6'4 @ 185 and I feel like a stick.

    I told him to join the air force and go party with girls and make a career out of it. He's being belligerent and saying that he wants to be on the ground killing people. He's definitely not grunt material, he's just one of "those" guys who think they're bad ass when they're not. I will enjoy watching him go through training.

    c'mon, you know that's not quite true. He'll get his 10 second call when he gets to bootcamp to let his loved ones know he made it there.

    *ring*
    -hello
    -hello, mom.
    -yes son
    -I'm here, bye. click.
