What to take to boot camp?
Everything you will need will be provided by your service when you get there. Only pack what it will take to get you to your duty station- one change of clothes, a wristwatch and a basic hygeine kit. You might also want to take a journal and a bible (religious books are the only books you can have). About $40 is all you'll need to have on you, so don't take a lot of money.
Do not take a camera, radio, or any other electronics. You won't need them, and the instructors will just take them up. Don't bother taking any sentimental items, either. If they aren't confiscated, they are just as likely to get lost or stolen. Just think of the bare minimum of survival. The less you can pack with you, the better.
I went to basic training with the setup I gave you in the first paragraph, and I did just fine. Just remember that in the first week the instructors will take your stuff and lock it up for the duration of basic.

Answer . A simple queston with a very complex nature. It all varies. Varies on country, which service (navy, army, etc), and war time situation. Usually it goes something like this: 1. Enlistment 2. Bootcamp (6-13weeks) 3. Additional training at a military school for specific job (5-…36weeks) 4. Training with one's specific unit (4-24weeks) 5. Deployment (ship or air transport) But this is just a general idea, like I said, it all varies. ( Full Answer )
The toughest of all the branches, but not like "Full Metal Jacket" tough. It's tough and humid and hot, but then you'll be prepared to take on anything. Good luck, Semper Fi and God bless!!! Where do you go to Marine boot camp? It was EXACTLY like "Full Metal Jacket" tough during my time (1981)…. The movie IMO was the closest thing you can get to without actually going through it. Movie was fully detailed ---down to the black toilet seats in the head. Just be prepared to endure the hardest thing you ever did in your life. Maybe you will come out of Marine boot camp "Full Metal tough". It is the SINGLE toughest thing you will ever, possibly, accomplish in your life. "Full Metal Jacket" is a dead on balls accurate depiction (with one exception...those ropes the actors are climbing do NOT..repeat DO NOT have knots in them..lol). Spent a record 319 days aboard the Island, (93-94) ran on a broken left leg for 10 days of BWT. USMC Boot Camp is DEFINITELY hard core. It's ALL mental, though. The physical part will come with a lot of hard work and sweat. The mental part is what you gotta work through. You hafta WANT IT. Semper Fi! ( Full Answer )
It is supposed to be the hardest boot camp in the U.S. military. You have to be able to pass physical exams and the drill sargeants test your mental stability. you also have to go into a gas chamber with a gas mask on, and then you have to take it off. it's pretty hardcore.
It depends on the branch of service. I can tell you Marine Corps boot camp is presenlty 12 weeks.
You get discharged from the military and you go home, that is unless the reason for your discharge is related to criminal activity. In the event it is, first you go to the stockade/brig, then perhaps to Leavenworth, then perhaps home.
Boot Camp is the common term applied to Military Basic Training. Each of the four services trains new recruits and indoctrinates them into the world of military service. This is done during basic training or boot camp.
its like the army but tougher. i should know i served a year in the camp no one came. see me. :( but i got over it. now i am out everyone in my family look at me weird but i went in when i am 16 and now i am 17. i am turning 18. NOW SERVING MY COUNTRY IN PRIDE
THE MARINE CORPS IS THE TOUGHEST BOOT CAMP OUT THERE AND ONLY THE TOUGHEST SURVIVE. THERE IS NO IF ANDS OR BUTS. Responses to this will vary depending on the service. Typically and traditionally, Paris Island, South Carolina for the USMC is considered one of the toughest. I will say, the M…arines are very tough, but the Army is right up there with it, and the Air Force, is becoming way more like the Army and the Marines in that their PT is just as challenging, they learn the EXACT same stuff the others do, tactics, rifle usage, etc. The same amount of stress is put on them, and they carry the same attitudes that you Mighty Marines do. Marines probably have the toughest boot camp with the Army right there with it, followed by the Air Force. ( Full Answer )
Parris Island, South Carolina for recruits east of the Mississippi. And San Diego, California for those west of the Mississippi.
Boot camp is a 2 Week Physical and Mental Training for our Military Troops. Boot camp is also preparation for Each Military Branch. Navy, Marine Corps, Airforce, Army, and Coast Guard
The Crucible is finale so to speak for becoming a Marine where all of the things you've learned come in to play and it's the ultimate test. You won't get any sleep for 2-3 days, have very little food, march miles and miles, crawl through mud, water, grass, dirt, etc. Go through various obstacle cour…ses that are somewhat mentally challenging (especially after no sleep for 48 hours) and on and on. Simply put, it's the hardest training segment of any of America's military branch's boot camps so get ready for it. ( Full Answer )
A School in the US Navy AIT in the US Army Tech School in the US Air Force Marine Combat Training or Infantry traing Battalion if Marine Corps
You should get used to running and stop drinking pop/alcohol, smoking, and using any illegal drugs.

The US military's primary infantry weapon for training is the M16. Just remember that when you enter bootcamp that you dont call the M16 your "gun".. The M16 is your "weapon"
If you are an infantry Marine you will go to Infantry Training Battalion at the School of Infantry. If you are a non-infantry Marine you will go to Marine Combat Training Battalion also at the School of Infantry. The SOIs are located at Camp Lejeune NC and Camp Pendleton CA.

Boot Camps for Teens are designed to help a teen that is heading in a negative direction. When a teen begins using drugs, drinking alcohol, and skipping school they are obviously heading in a negative direction. If the teen is not stopped from the direction they are moving, they will either end up i…n prison, the hospital, or possibly even dead. An intervention of some type is definitely needed. A boot camp is a great way to break a negative cycle. Most boot camps provide education, help for substance abuse issues, and even therapy. Over the last 5 years many of the boot camps have been closed. This happens when those looking after the teens become angry, take things personally, and eventually end up abusing the teens. There are still a few good teen boot camps available. In addition to helping a teen or child with negative behaviors the boot camps are also effective at increasing the youngsters overall health. The boot camps include calisthenics, and proper eating to assist the teen along with correcting their other improper behaviors. Not all boot camps are good, and it is important to check them out thoroughly prior to enrolling a child in one. ( Full Answer )
At worst you won't get paid on time, but you'll eventually get paid. SF 1199A (the military version of the Direct Deposit form), like all DD forms, is required for military members and Civil Service employees as well, for almost 15 years now. It costs the government a lot of money to print Treasury …Checks (though I miss getting them), so the DD system cuts costs substantially. There are 4 things you never want to screw up while in the Navy; 1. Pay 2. Medical / Dental Records 3. Personnel Records 4. Pay Did I mention Pay? You can always get one online and take it with you or mail it in to the address on the form, ask your Recruiter for a copy, or you can tell your CC when you arrive that you screwed up and forgot your form (which won't endear you, but since everyone's a screwup at first, it's not a big deal). Don't let it slide either - the government won't pay you if it doesn't know where to deposit your money. It's not like the old days when your checks arrived and they passed them out at mail call, or they mailed them to your wife and she spent it all before you got back from sea. Yeomen don't like to deal with sailors who give them more work; not attending to your own admin requirements does just that, so don't make it a habit. Always keep your unit Yeoman on your good side, as well as the Doc. You'd be surprised how easily your shot record and personnel file can be "lost" if you aggravate them enough. Usually, someone during your BT processing after you arrive will figure out there isn't a form on file for you and get you to fill one out. However, knowing how busy PN's are these days, don't assume they'll catch it - be proactive and ensure your pay is taken care of. ( Full Answer )
They cannot send you to military boot camp, but they can make arrangements for you to go to a boot camp type experience. Until you reach the age of adulthood, your parents control where you live.

Soldiers, after boot camp, can go to war, but often don't. They will most likely undergo some specialized training in boot camp, but might go to another camp, to learn more about their specialization and be with people who will be with you IF you even have to fight. If you're ancy about going to war…, try the army reserve. They are a part of the army. You will meet regularly and the chance of going to war is decreased. ( Full Answer )
Boot Camp refers to armed forces Basic Training or BT- might be a voweless acronym like (Jeep) Only the largest cities have special training facilities for firemen ( obviously New York and Newark NJ do). following successful passing of the exams, there is of course an on-the-Job training equipment b…ut the drill varies ( no pun intended). Maybe there are special fire schools ( that is the term used) for the Volunteer Firemen seeking to advance their knowledge of fire control to the level of the Professionals. I can recall seeing ads for these schools, which might be coinsidered camps- as they operate in remote areas in some FD literature an uncle of mine had.Probably the smaller cities might have ( affiliations) with the big city training companies, squadrons, or whatever they are called. a good question- as there are many periods when Firefighters are NOt actively fire-fighting, much instruction goes on in the fire houses with fire officers acting as lecturers (the handling of hoses, extinguishers, operation of pumps, rescue technique, and so on. Good questions all! ( Full Answer )
Yes. If you are already thinking about it, you should not even go because you likely won't make it.

It has happened before, but it's really an uncommon thing to happen. For example, a soldier from Alaska gets to a BCT post in the South, and ends up drinking so much water that they flush the electrolytes completely out of their body. Stuff like that.
The PowerBook needs to be running Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard), which includes the Boot Camp utility, and enough hard disc space to have a separate boot partition. It will need a G4 (867 MHz or faster). The older G3 PowerBooks will not be able to run Leopard.
It depends entirely on what level you are referring. there is a chain of command from the President of the US to the lowest soldier, each has a role to play. Below is a glimpse into the COC (Chain of Command): . President of the United States . Vice President of the United States . Speaker of t…he House . President pro tempore of the Senate . Secretary of State . Secretary of the Treasury . Secretary of Defense . Joint Chief of Staff (of each particular branch for that branch) . SGM of the Army, SGM of the Marine Corp, Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force, or Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy This is where it gets a bit divergent, so the remainder are for the US Army only . USAFAC Training Command (General Officer) . USAFAC Training command (CSM) . Post Command (General Officer) . Post CSM . Post Training Command (LTC< Colonel, or General Officer) . Post Training Command (CSM) . Brigade Command (Staff Officer - major rank or higher, but not higher than PTC) . Brigade CSM, or Sgt, Major . Battalion Command (Captain or Higher, but not higher rank that Brigade) . Battalion Sgt. Major . Battery/Company Commander (2nd Lt. rank or higher, but not higher than Battalion) .

Only if you were issued that prescription by an authorized military physician. Soldiers in boot camp may not even take over the counter medication unless they received such as a part of sick call.
This question does not make any sense. However I can answer it how I believe you intended and hopefully it answers your question: Boot Camp is the term for the initial entry training in the US military branches. All initial entry trainings are commonly referred to as Boot Camp by civilians. In the… US Army it is formally called Basic Combat Training (BCT, also Basic). It takes place at a disclosed time after enlisting in the US Military. They are varying lengths and also the type of training varies between branches. ( Full Answer )
You can't - unless you're prior service and are re-entering boot camp for the second time (after being discharged for a certain period and re-entering the service), you're stuck being an E-1 recruit just like everyone else in your company. There are company leaders, typically a Recruit Chief and …First Class, but those are selected by the Company Commander after the Company is formed. They're typically older or those who have had leadership training as a civilian. The whole point of BT is to strip everyone's individuality so that everyone is the same, and then teach you to work as a team in everything you do. You compete and achieve everything as a company, not as an individual. You are rewarded and punished as a company. Everything you do is as a team. ( Full Answer )
Actually more of an identification of those attending boot camp. They wore navy issue shoes with white lace up leggings over the top that where mid way up to the knee, hence "Boots" or "Boot camp".

A boot camp is a factory where they make boots. It used to be that they made the boots out in the woods so they called it boot CAMP, but they never ended up changing the name. Hope this helps!

The Army doesn't do "boot camp" - it's either Basic Combat Training (BCT), which is then followed by Advanced Individual Training (AIT), or else it's One Station Unit Training (which is basically BCT and AIT rolled into one package, rather than separate BCT and AIT). The locations are.. Fort Benn…ing, Georgia Fort Sill, Oklahoma Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri Fort Knox, Kentucky Fort Jackson, South Carolina ( Full Answer )

The list of Medical DQ's is long and detailed, and in the end, anything besides being pretty healthy these days will get you DQ'd, even if it's not on the list. All branches are overstaffed, so recruit selection is at a premium, meaning they can pick and choose the best and healthiest of applicants.… The Army recently started discharging overweight personnel, as an example. Below is a general list of the most common Medical DQ's, though for most people it's the legal DQ's that ultimately disqualify them, or a combination. This informatoin is from the Army's "Standards of Medical Fitness", though they generally apply to all military service branches, with a few exceptions for the Navy and Marines, which have more stringent requirements for some personnel qualifications. Note that while these aren't permanently disqualifying (there are waivers for anything), they typically are, particularly in a recruiting climate such as currently exists.
