I'm sorry for rollin' a bit off-topic, but I just need to know... Is the USMC something like Full Metal Jacket? Y'know, the harsh boot camp?

Stupid question, but still... Pure curiosity.

EO Violation;5529921Life as a recruit in an MCRD is a lot tougher than the average vagtastic time spent at, say, Ft. Jackson. But these days, even infantry and armor recruits have a pretty pussified time at basic. It isn't the drill sergeant's fault, they have to fight with their hands tied behind their backs. It's bullshit.[/QUOTE]

Hunh, and here I thought that whole "relaxin Jackson" thing was just sarcasm =p

I'm pretty sure they don't hit people anymore.

When I was in Young Marines, they had their little condensed version of Parris Island, and basically it was setup like this:

0730 arrive at station 0745 get yelled at 0800 move to hanger 0815 get yelled at 0830 morning PT 0930 get yelled at 1000 get yelled at 1030 maybe a class or two 1100 incentive pt while getting yelled at 1200 chow 1245 drill 1345 get yelled at 1400 general knowledge 1500 drill/get yelled at/incentive pt 1600 go home

xD

That was a day in Young Marine boot camp. The real thing however, is quite a bit different in the fact that 3+ adults are yelling at you, more difficult stuff, and you stay there for 90 days.

Here's a view vids for your amusement ;)
