anything i can do to prepare any more?
Have sex and eat junk food.
Have sex and eat junk fo0d.
+ and just know you'll make it. Good luck
learn ranks and insignias, learn upper chain of command. motto, creed, official song etc.
when you do go, you can probably get by with just your wallet(~$50 or so, small pictures, IDs and such) And the clothes you will be wearing, i would recomend not even trying to dress up, you will stick all your shit you bring in a bag and not open it for months and they will make you go buy a list of items because they want everyone to use the same shampoo/toothpaste/etc if it is navy bootcamp was.
I'd say show your loyalty to the Marine Corps and your country by getting a USMC tattoo somewhere on your body before you go in. It will impress your drill instructors.
Make sure they are JROTC dress blues with 7 rows of ribbons.
Pretty good advice.
just know that its suppose to be a mindfuck. And remember to always make a effort to stay composed. the first few weeks, everyone's going to be fighting with each other. Pretty much you need to be able to work with others. It's all about cohesion.
seriously....drink a shit ton of water and eliminate alcohol.
but definitely have lots of sex, you won't see any pussy for three months.
Good Luck! Its a hell of a place to go.
But i'm sure it will be just a bit different for you then it was for me since I am female
that made me
Even better is showing up wearing lots of marine branded clothing and a shaved head
do they salt peter the food at PI? Parts of me died at lackland...
thanks for all the advice guys
Make sure you do the sex part with a female.
Whatever it was....something was definately wrong....
Dont ask. Dont tell.
Try 60 guys who are all stressed out and uncomfortable.
I didn't shit for 2.5 weeks when I was there (Lackland), that sucked.
Not enuff food to eat.....that n stress. During 3rd week I was shittin once a day..that was nice....warrior week I held out till I couldn't...I pinched a loaf out twice on those nasty jail house seats..that sucked....5th n 6th week just turned up the stress again, so little was accomplished.
60 stressed guys, yes...but when u don't get hardons in class sittin nxt to ur sister flight or just stop thinkin about sex period, something is really wrong
