    i was a little nervous but meh


    then again i was 22 years old so i suppose it was different for me, in all honnesty I think rushing and going through hell week in my fraternity prepared me the most out of anything for basic :o

    I'm 21 and I have a sleeve. I'm already drawing attention to myself.

    Worst part is, My dad just got promoted to Colonel and knows most of the guys down there... I really hope my name doesn't hold some weight in things that I have to do. I don't want to be looked at like "a colonel's daughter"

    yeah, I try to keep it to myself now but, sometimes it's hard when I fill out my paperwork and they recognize my name.
    My dad is already getting calls about me joining :o

    I'm not saying a word though, hell no.

    Do what you're told.

    Do it fast.

    Don't argue or question commands.

    Volunteer. You chose the military. You're enlisted. Your goal is to be an NCO. Volunteer for leadership positions (squad leader, platoon guide). Challenge yourself.

    Basic wasn't bad. It was just LONG. It never seemed to end. But it does. Take it one day at a time.

    Oh yeah. Always go first, if possible. No one knows anything, so they expect you to fuck up. But when you go last in a platoon of 30-40 guys, there's some expectation that you will do better having seen the others. So go first.

    Kick ass, sister. As for the family thing, you work your ass off, and it won't matter. And don't do that girly shit, batting your eyes at the DI or mess sgt. Frickin' pisses me off.
