Worst: getting my skull smashed and missing graduation because they were putting a titanium plate in my head.

i hated being in basic with girls(Avation) not hating on the women in the military but it was just too much bs. we lost two drill srgnts to sexual harassment. and i thought it was way too easy. we had two pizza partys and pt in the pool every friday. i was in basic in 2006 btw.

What branch did you join? Everybody says Air Force is the easy branch but I don't remember pizza parties or pt in a pool (other than the greenish water in the obstacle course) during BMT.

now that built a "battlestations" compound, and having it in one spot, instead of having recruits run around the base for 13+ hours, and went away with one galley on the whole RTC base, and build them into each BEQ, alot of people say its "easier" due to lack of marching around, but they made up for it by having us march with our seabags for 3-4 hours every day ... around a ing pond. I almost went insane lol. .. but yeah, navy PT is kinda wimpy, they have a set regiment and as long as you can don't die on the first pt you have, they leave you alone, to a point. but it also depends on who the division is ran by lol

Not bad! Every branch has its highs and lows, but all for the same fight!
