I disagree that recruit training should be a relaxed place for people who are training to be in the military. The military prepare men and women for war and death. In recent years, the Navy bootcamp has become a walk in the park. What do you say?

When I was in bootcamp, President Reagan has just taken office, and he tightened things up regarding the military, as well as pushed for and got a good pay increase. The biggest change I recall is that recruits sent anywhere on base alone were required to double-time rather than walk.

I don't know what bootcamp is like now. My dad went through Army bootcamp in 1947, and he called the bootcamp I went through a stay at the Holiday Inn. :)

I went to RTC TWICE in my life: 1985 and again in 1996. RTC was tougher in 1985 than 1996.

It's a thing of honor for it to be sadistic :) But, looking at another thing, advanced math cannot have easy professors. It's not possible! The math is what it is.

People don't want boot camp to be soft cause it's honorable for it to be tough.

Recruit training is meant to do away with all civilian bad habits. It must be a tough place to be. The Navy is the military.
