    There isn't any real advice to give really. Just make sure to do what they tell you, when they tell you, w/o asking questions and you will do fine.

    Hahaha, damn poolie. Peter beat me to it.

    You aren't deploying, you are "shipping out."

    Anyways, you are shipping out the exact day I did, 1 year ago, so that is cool. You'll probably graduate on September 2nd like I did.

    Advice? The advice I always got was "do exactly what you are told" --- and that is the best advice you can get. When they tell you to do something, don't think "That's stupid, this way is simply better." Do it exactly the way they tell you, no matter how stupid it is.

    Also, from today until you leave for boot camp, run EVERYDAY. Running is about the easiest thing to improve on, and you'll need it if you aren't in great shape already.

    Have fun. Don't worry too much. Marine bootcamp is probably the easiest in the Military.

    I've heard that the guides and squad leaders always get thrashed a lot more.

    The 20 pullups help, but you don't have to do 20 to be guide.

    My guide, who was also company honorman, graduated doing 12 pullups.

    I'm going to be going into boot doing 100 crunches and under 9 minutes on the IST 1.5 mile run, but I don't think i'll be at 20 pullups. I'm at 10 right now, so I guess mabye 14 pullups by the time I ship.

    I heard that the DI's pick the recruit who sounds off the loudest, lol.
