    I used to watch that Marine-released video about bootcamp all the time. Its gotta be 15 years old by now. I just popped it in and watched it again :o


    Marine Basic looks to be an absolute bitch from this video

    Anybody else seen it? :hs:

    I think Accord is talking about "Making Marines" which was a chronicle that showed PI Marine bootcamp, it used to be played on discovery channel before the elected to show family drama in the form of making motorcycles. On a side note did anyone get to catch "Tank School" the other day? It followed Marine tankers through training and right in the middle of their first Live fire ex the training Captain informed them of what had just happened, the World Trade Center attacks.

    I saw that also. It was pretty cool to see them training on the tanks. I remember watching the date at the bottom of the screen and wondering what was going to happen when they got to Sep 11th. :noes:

    If its the one that is hosted by the guy from major dad then I know what you are talking about. I own it. It was filmed in '89 my brother is one of the recruits. Not one the ones being interviewed but one of the recruits doing the shit.

    Its a good video and its pretty close to what you experience. Of course there are things that happen "off camera".

    They're moving it to a more isolated place where civis can't see what's going on inside. Now all the SD recruits will know what it's like to be 3RD BN on PI. :rofl:

    1st, 2nd, and 4th (females) are all on the part of the base with all the civilian stuff. Pretty much like any normal Marine Corps base. 3rd BN is back in the woods where no one can see what's going on and the recruits never see much of the base. Our humps are through the woods, their humps are on the streets. We never knew there was a Pizza Hut on base till sunday libo the week before you graduate. Man we got sick that day. :mamoru:
