Best Answer

Remember that basic training serves one purpose only: it weeds out those who can't follow orders. Everything else is ancillary. You won't learn how to do your job. It is like the kindergarten of the military. You will be given stupid, but lawful orders that need to be obeyed. Many people can't bring themselves to follow these absolutely idiotic orders. You will understand this when you get there.<br />
<br />
Since its purpose is to weed out those people and not to brainwash you, feel free to forget everything you learned in basic training after you finish it. Everything that you actually need to know will be taught afterwards. Physical training now will make the physical pain hurt less, but there is nothing to numb the mental pain. Just pretend you are like Forrest Gump for the couple of months of stupidity that you have to endure.

Best Answer

very very very helpful..thank you very much&lt;3 :)

Best Answer

Oh, and I forgot to mention that even though basic training weeds out most of those who can't follow orders, it doesn't get them all. And dealing with those people for your military career will make you wish that basic training was ten times harder.

Best Answer

Thank you so much :)

Best Answer

Your welcome. There are many changes that will take place, for me, it was getting away from the family and finding what I was made of and capable of, and it started me in a career which I have followed for the remainder of my life. Heck of a jump for a farm kid who wouldn't say **** if he had a mouth full. To go back, buy the family farm and put all new equipment on it, build a new house and still be debt free. And, I have enjoyed my 40 years of working life, I liked the jobs I did, there were projects which I litterally wanted to be at work rather than home, it was that fun. I wish you the same luck

Best Answer

Sounds like you've had a wonderful life &lt;3 :) thank you so so much, for the support..hopefully my life will turn out like yours, lol aside from buying a farm lol, &lt;3 xoxo

Best Answer

We each have out own dream, I don't think its required to buy a farm :-)
