Nothing will get you used to it, take this time to enjoy simple freedoms like choosing your own clothes, and sitting down and resting whenever you want. Also choosing what and when you eat and listening to music, get it all out now because you take the little things for granted, trust me!

Yeah, I remember when I graduated boot camp and went to "A" school for my rate training. I went to the store and bought candy, then to the library to borrow a Harry Potter book. I don't think I've ever enjoyed eating candy or reading so much. It's amazing how much you appreciate simple pleasures, like reading a book because you WANT to not because someone TOLD you to when you've been to boot camp.

No. Don't call them 'sir'. Unless you want to hear "DO I LOOK LIKE AN OFFICER TO YOU?" just say Sergeant or drill sergeant. Lol Well, unless you like getting smoked.

Just a tip OP, don't call them "Sarg" either. This is the quickest way to piss off a Sergeant. "Sarg" is a scum sucking fish that lives on the ocean floor- it's in the dictionary between shit and syphilis. Just sayin', now you know...and knowing is half the battle!

Yes, #117, I'm well aware of how the alphabet works. My statement was an homage to a line that I thought was rather well known to most people. Maybe the last line of my comment is more your speed, but you probably missed that reference too.

I was active duty Air Force before I went Army Guard....don't ask. I know, what the hell was I thinking! LOL! Anyway, we never used Sir unless it was an officer, but I'm from a different generation so maybe things have changed.

Actually, a lot of assholes enlist. In my experience, about 50% of the people who enlist are assholes. Then they get promoted and become even bigger assholes. But I can only speak for the Navy. It's like people join the Navy straight out of high school, and then the Navy becomes their mom so that they never mature beyond that, and then those who were bullies in high school get handed opportunities to be even bigger bullies when they get promoted and given authority over others.

I don't know about that. Officers are nicer to me than senior enlisted and other junior enlisted, but that's probably just because as a junior enlisted I'm not their problem. I don't doubt I'd find a lot more assholes among officers if I worked with or for them directly.

That is a true statement for you, #8. You're that guy, the one that thinks the song is,"Revved up like a douche, another mother in the night"....yeah, that guy.

Don't act so naivy. He's only pulling your army like that because he loves you. He's just trying to clear the air, force you to face reality. He is obviously proud of you and thinks this career choice is better than something like marine biology. Good luck, soldier.

Coast Guard? You mean the Navy's little brother? HAW HAW HAW! Anyway, I thought it was the other way around. I thought the Coast Guard used to be another department, then after 9/11 it became part of the Department of Defense.

50, I hope you realize the army prevents the country from being attacked and/or taken over. And no, not everyone can be a marine. I certainly can't because of health problems.

I hope you realize the last war on American territoy was the Civik War, and that was vs. eachother. Don't be ignorant, nobody is going to attack the United States with our 2600+ nukes. It is funny to see you hicks with no intellect bashing me because you have no prospects, lol.

101- You are an idiot. Parts of WWII were fought on American territory. And are we going to nuke our own cities if they are occupied? No. Nukes are usless if you are fighting on your own soil or if the launch sites are captured.

101.... First of all, at least TRY to do a little research before you claim how many nukes the United States have. Secondly, don't believe any number you hear (you really think we're gonna just throw that info out there? And last but NOT least you said "don't be ignorant, nobody is going to attack the United States..." DO YOU REMEMBER 9/11??? And you have the audacity to call other people ignorant. Guess what, unconventional warfare is booming, and it's unpredictable. Sincerely, The No Intellect Hick That Enlisted To Make Sure You Keep The Right To Make Stupid Comments

DonQuixote158 - 1) You obviously failed to see the puns in my comment, 2) you failed to remember Pearl Harbor, which happened well after the 1860's, 3) congratulations on insulting soldiers everywhere, and 4) get the fuck off my thread and take your stupid argument elsewhere.

haha, your dad just wants to make sure your prepared to some extent. Maybe after real training you'll appreciate your dads methods and realise he wasn't so bad.
