    Coast Guard Bootcamp

    Ya, im going to be going in to meet with the recruiter. I looked at the tests online and they dont seem to bad....

    I can do 65 pushups or so
    Swim for 45 Minutes straight
    I dont really jog much....gotta work on that , flat feet and all, no pain in my ankles or anything though.( I'm actually worried that the Flat feet might DQ me)
    Situps im fine
    Pullups im fine

    How intense is bootcamp? Physically is it insane or is that only the marines? I know mentally it will probably be taxing I figured if I got in good enough shape that the physical part of it would be like a resting stage ;P

    Anyone hear done it? Any advice for someone wanting to join, dont know if im up to trusting the recruiter.

    Unless you're a lardass, the physical fitness test won't be hard to pass.

    Regardless of branch, bootcamp is going to suck.

    I wouldn't necessarily trust the recruiter 100%. Those guys can be sneaky; at least mine was. I wished I would have talked to some more guys who were already in the fleet before I signed all the paperwork.

    Emevas is right about the physical part of boot camp. It's not that bad, believe it or not. It wasn't nearly as hard as the mental part.

    About the Navy thing, I watched this thing on the Military Channel (yes there is one) where all the Annapolis graduates had to figure out a way to replace a rag with an officer's cover, but the catch was that the rag was on top of a 20-foot stone pillar covered in lard. Soo many gay jokes come to mind, but that's seriously difficult if you think about what's involved (human tower anyone?).

    Just curious, why the coast guard as opposed to another branch, or local law enforcement?

    Harder than the Army? Are we talking harder than people in communications fields in BFE boot camp or are we talking harder than infantry boot camp at Benning?

    I thought about law enforcement but for the past while I was looking at getting into a field that worked more with not just law enforcement but something else. Coast Guard seems to do tons of stuff. Figured no matter what I wanted to do in life it would be a good place to start law enforcement or something else.

    CG bootcamp is harder then the army bootcamp eh? interesting...i always heard Navy bootcamp wasn't very hard..

    My understanding was Marines, Army, Navy then Airforce in terms of difficult basic training but in those departments lie different occupation specialties which also play a part and most certainly will vary. Well, maybe except for the Marines. I think they all go to the same place no?

    Marine recruits east of the Mississipii go to MCRD Parris Island off the coast of South Carolina, west of the Mississippi go to MCRD San Diego.

    *snooty Marine Corps attitude* It's only called boot camp in the Marines, the rest of you military slobs go to Basic Training, except the Air Force. They go to day camp, which is about as rigorous as vacation bible school.

    Infantry OSUT is another story from what I hear. I did my basic at Knox which has a reputation for being slightly less hardcore than Benning. As such, they pound the **** out of you in resentment of being seen as #2, much as they do in Air Assault for the same reason. We were rumored to have an undercover CID agent in our BN due to complaints of mistreatment. I was made to sit down with an LTC and tell him how the drills were treating us there.

    But Jackson, Sill, and Leonard Wood (where I did my OBC,) = T3h gh3y.
