    Not according to the posts I'm reading from guys that have just graduated. Some of 'em are prior service Army that are going in after a break. They all say it's basic training all over again - only squeezed into 4 weeks. Drill Sgt's in your face, PT up the wazoo... I foresee much pain in my future. :hsd:

    the 10k march doesn't worry me and the I'm definitely looking forward to the training itself. It's the frequent PT and the smokin' my ass in the pit that I'm not so looking forward to. :hsugh:
    E5 (prior service ftw)


    not until recently. :hs:

    When we first start the course, they'll give us a 1/1/1 PFT to see if we can make our numbers in the 1 mile/1 minute situps/1 minute pushups. My only problem right now is my situps. I blame it all on my gf. If we'd been having more sex my stomache muscles would already be conditioned. :mamoru:

    When I went thru basic there was a guy I met in reception going thru as an e-5, and this was regular basic training before WTC existed. He was former Marine force recon and had been an e-6 but had been out for like 6 or 7 years.

    IIRC he had to get out of the Marines due to some family issues or something and then when he was able to go back in he felt he was too old to go back to doing that. It's been seven years so I don't remember the exact details anymore.

    I just read this on the military.com forums. WTC is looking like it's going to be lots of fun! :hsd:

    do it when you are on the ass-end of your 40's and then we'll compare muscle aches.

    fuck yeah! :eek5:

    Kind of like the first time, only with more prep. :eek5:

    My APFT score is 220, so I'm not too worried about passing that. I just don't want to get injured and held back. I'm definitely looking forward to having it behind me, though. :hsd:
