I just can't take the incessant bickering and political correctness on this site anymore.  I am leaving and never coming back.  Don't cry for me ARFDC, for I truly won't miss any of you shitheads.
Just kidding.  I leave for basic tomorrow.  I hope the months of May and June are bright and warm for everybody.

Question everything they tell you. That shows the D.I.'s you are a thinking man and not a robot, probably make you an officer or something.

Remember the Lance Corporal motto while in basic training.

"Never first, never last, never volunteer."

Good luck, Redmanfms!!

Where are you going to be for basic?  Maybe somebody here has the connections to get you some "extra attention" while you're there. [;D]

Just remember...

Never run when you can walk...
Never walk when you can ride...
And never stand when you can sit...

The military is not for everybody, but it can be a very rewarding experience for those who can hack it.

Good luck.

When you get there, tell 'em I said Hi. I went to basic there in '94, it is a breeze. Just do what you're told, don't talk during chow, and they will leave you alone.

NAVY, good choice!!![:)]

Hey when they take you to get a dose of tear gas make sure the last guy slams the door extra hard as he goes in. When I went through this would occasionally dislodge an observation window letting gas seep in to the unprotected folks, you won't care at the time but later on you'll laugh your ass off at the memory of your chief and 1st class running for the exit and fighting each other out the door. Probably fixed by now but there was a theory amongst us temp duty pukes that it would never be fixed cause the chamber guys thought it was too much fun watching the PO's freak out.

EDITED TO ADD: Good luck man.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the most important thing he needs to remember:
Don't ask, don't tell.


Seriously now, good luck and thanks for your service.

Don't forget to look the drill instructor dead in the face and say  "YOU EYEBALLIN ME BOY!"

The Navy?! What the hell are you gonna do with all that lame ass nuclear training out in the real world when you get out? Man your recruiter fucked you! Probably only earn 6 figures with a bullshit job like that.

All kidding aside. I have been in the aerospace bidness for a long time and they look for Navy experience in their critical systems employees. It is a good thing to have on your resume.

If you you ever get some time out of that place and want to shoot jump on and look me up. IIRC i'm only 45min or so from there, been a while since I've been to GLNB, my uncle was an instructor there, was his last post before he retired from the navy.
