Boot Camp comparisons

U.S Army Boot Camp

U.S. Marine Boot Camp

I'm giving 50% of the points to WRAPPEDinBACON because he showed me the army boot camp video on facebook.

    You think Marine Corps is tough? Try United States Air Force Pararescue boot camp.

    And if you want somebody to look at a town through binoculars and say "shit man, you were right, that's a really nice town. Shame we're on a fucking boat" call the navy.

    From the Halls of Montezuma,
    To the shores of Tripoli;
    We fight our country's battles
    In the air, on land, and sea;
    First to fight for right and freedom
    And to keep our honor clean;
    We are proud to claim the title
    Of United States Marine.

    Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
    From dawn to setting sun;
    We have fought in every clime and place
    Where we could take a gun;
    In the snow of far-off Northern lands
    And in sunny tropic scenes;
    You will find us always on the job
    The United States Marines.

    Here's health to you and to our Corps
    Which we are proud to serve;
    In many a strife we've fought for life
    And never lost our nerve;
    If the Army and the Navy
    Ever look on Heaven’s scenes;
    They will find the streets are guarded
    By United States Marines.

    Semper Fi

    yeah i noticed, we had like 67 ppl in my platoon, with about 12 marines, and 7 of them were recon, one was my chalk leader, was probably one of the coolest guys ive met in the military as far as being a not-dicked up leader

    im ARMY but i dont think the MOS would change much vs ASVAB. i got a 98 and i chose mechanic. just pick something you enjoy for a job.

    I can tell all of you from experience not to underestimate Air Force boot camp. I went through it 4 years ago and it wasn't that tough. I also went through Air Force PJ training and that is seriously hardcore stuff. However when i went through the new basic training regiment that the Air Force is now applying it's much much tougher. Our basic training still isn't Marine tough but i would be willing to our PJ training up against Recon any day. Hurray for the Chair Force for finally toughening up!!! And just an FYI Afghanistan is hot as hell.

    it depends on MOS johne... we did ours (Infantry), lasted 9 days, involved about 62km of roadmarching in the last 3 days or so... anyone besides infantry in teh army has an extremely easy basic...

    we are talking basic vs basic, not basic vs schools. to the point i think you are trying to make i agree. there are many difficult schools in all the armed forces. but when it comes to who has the most difficult basic, Marines all the way.

    i guess it could be argued either way, we never left, we were there for 17 weeks, same place and ppl and Drill Sgts...
