First let me say congratulations! I wish you the best!

I only wish I had a joining date, but I've yet to even submit my application (Waiting for my Army discharge docs to come back)

Secondly - Prepare for the biggest shock of your life!

Basic training is not meant to be easy and it will be very hard!

There will be times where the 'home comforts' will set in and you'll be thinking of your nice lie-ons back home, your mates and down the pub, etc. But when those thoughts set in, you need to think of something in particular. It sounds as though you have utter contempt for your current employment so I will recommend the thought of doing that the rest of your life nourishing you should you feel the slightest of urges to drop out!

For me, if I get in, I won't need anything like that because I'm already an ex-service person who regrets quitting and I've faced the fears of working in a factory all my life so I won't be remembering the 'home comforts' because I've got plenty of resentment towards them!!!

Good luck and GIVE IT HELL :twisted:

Btw, Stuart Gilligan Griffin rules!!!

Ive heard that if you thought the PJFT was a easy Raliegh wont be too tough. Is this true?

More or less. Assuming you're male and under 25 years of age you need to do the run in 11 mins 13 seconds at Raleigh.

Try getting used to getting up at 0530 in the morning - that's the time you get up. (Lights out 2200.)

I didn't find the change as bad as people make out to be honest. It is strict but not in a bad way if you get what I mean.

Wtf you are officially allowed 7 1/2 hours sleep during basic?

It was only 6 in the Army - even though I mostly got about 2-3 hours if I was lucky enough not to be doing an all nighter due to the idiots in my section not getting things done!!!
