Boot Camp

Post by Emperor Awesome » Sun Feb 06, 2011 12:43 am

So after a many many months long wait, I'm finally shipping out. As of tuesday, I'm gonna be a sailor. Wish me luck, the savages don't even let you smoke.

Welcome to the Job, son. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
Only one advice: if the guy doing the hot racking with you is named Steve and has a british accent, well, ask for a change of shift...

Ahh the memories, went to boot in Great Lakes in 73 through most of the winter. I think it was the coldest I've ever been but I got through it-fair winds and following seas recruit!

I went in Feb. 03 to Great Lakes. I really enjoyed it, as silly as it sounds. Only made it 2 weeks, before a certain drug test came back kicking me out.

Enjoy yourself! When I went, the weather averaged around -15. It was awesome. Just get used to very quick showers and you will have to be able to change in and out of the winter clothing layers quickly.

does it always have to go there with the navy? just because seaman is a rank and they wear bell bottoms?
