    Civilian life is so much different. It's all thrown at your face when you get out and i'm just sitting here like uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.........holy shit. Everything is a new experience again. Some stuff you have to re-learn.

    Anyone else have to deal with this? I feel like I am totally unprepared for the fleet and further things. All boot camp was....was a living hell of disipline.

    Welcome back to the land of the Bill of Rights, Insdav3. :mamoru:

    You should have sent Bigfodee your address! I think he still has a few bucketloads of payback left over from when he was there. :rofl:

    I didn't know jarheads used "fleet", I thought it was a Navy thing. Am I wrong here?

    :rofl: I was thinking about mailing you.... but then I found out how fucked up USMC boot camp is (thanks to my personal DI's) and then I was like hell no!! I almost broke without any help from OT. I could just imagine 2 hrs of firewatch and there is no way my body could keep up pitting with everyone that went. I give bigfodee props for that shit. I couldn't have done it.

    I hope the 2 hr firewatch wasn't that bad on you...firewatch ends when you get to the fleet but it's replaced witih baracks duty which is a 24 hour post.

    Yeah but some units play video games and watch tv during barracks duty. Not us. They took all that away.
