    Yep, graduated yesterday from MCRD-SD and am in Sacramento visiting relatives before I go home for my 10 days of leave and I don't have to report to MCT until the 17th because of extra recruiters assitance they gave us thanks to the holidays. :wiggle:

    I think I'm gonna go out and eat in a little bit, but someone tell me about MCT. :)

    Congratulations, bro!

    I graduated just a few months ago (September 2nd).

    I was in Infantry Training Battallion, even though the first month of that is pretty much like MCT, i'll let EYOB or another pogue tell you how it is. :)

    How was The Crucible for you? Did you get to meet Fred?

    Congratulations.

    What's your MOS?

    What was your PFT score before boot camp and what was your final PFT score at the end of boot? I'm curious to see how much improvement you had.

    My final PFT was 124 crunches, 15 pullups and a 23:30 run, which isnt "amazing", but I got to boot camp doing about 65 crunches, 6 pull ups and on the initial PFT I ran the 3 miles in 30 minutes. So I was outta shape.

    I also weighed 182 lbs when I got there and I weigh 150lbs now...

    My MOS is MP, so I'll be at Ft. Lost in the Woods in Missouri.

    Holy shit :eek3:.

    That's a huge improvement, did you get thrashed a lot or something to get such big improvements? Did you hit the pullup bar every night during the hour or so of down time?

    My current PFT score right now is almost identical to what your initial PFT was.

    1st and 2nd Phase, I only ended up on the quarterdeck for relief or if I was caught on field days fucking off in the rain room or something, and there for a few days during swim week I was up there like 5 hours one day. Missed alot of rifle cleaning that day. ;)

    Oh, and man during B. Co inspection a guy in follow series locked his knees and ate shit on the parade deck.... he hit his jaw on his rifle, broke his jaw, knocked out 3 teeth and bled like crazy. Alot of crazy shit happened this cycle... :noes:

    Ugh, I had to sleep out there in the middle of the woods in the freezing ass cold a couple of weeks ago.

    But hey, I love Missouri, so it's all good ;)

    I wonder if you'll be closer to Springfield or KC and STL...

    Springfield, MO --- There is a reserve unit down here for every branch.

    I looked at it on the map, and Ft. Leonard Wood isn't that far from Springfield. It's really only about an hour and a half drive.

    You'll also be about an hour and a half from Kansas City, and St. Louis. Three good places to go. I <3 Missouri, so I think you'll have fun.

    why hello future MP buddy. your lucky MP school has changed a lot since i went. it sucked ass. enjoy big louies while your there. and for future pft advice, dont do more than 100 crunches, they dont count and only tire you more for the run. believe me, being an mp in the fleet, youll get outta shape =]

    Yeah, the way they do the PFT now is pullups, run, then crunches, so you might as well give max effort and for us if it was over 120 they counted them. :dunno:

    Where was your school at?

    So you could get over a 300 PFT? wtf?

    was that something just your company in boot did, or is that a new thing all throughout the Marine Corps?

    exact same place yours is going to be, fort lostinthewoods.

    ive always seen it done as pullups, crunches, then run. and trust me, 100 crunches = 100 points. its impossible to get anything above that. in boot camp they just encourage you to do as many possible. i recall doing upwards of 125 or so in boot as well.

    Yeah, I worded that wrong. Our Senior kept count of anyone who got more than 120, but 100 is all that counted. ;)

    But we always did pullups, run, crunches. We'd tell out scribe our run time, wait for the whole platoon to finish and get lined up to do crunches, then another platoon would partner up with us and we'd bust em out.
