The first point that must as well be regarded as some kind of combat anthem at the US Marine boot camp is discipline. With it lies the road to glory and being fully enlisted in the army, or the shamefaced dismissal which has become with time the most humiliating homecoming party for dismissed officers. That is why survival is so dependent on following orders, attending instructive drills and even undergoing tough tasks. One should never retort to an officer because he will keep an eye on the transgressor.
The second way to surviving in a US Marine’s boot camp is having mental composure. The fact that this military training is conducted on strict equality rules means that one must accept duties that in normal life they would not contemplate of doing. For example, one must change his or her mindset on not washing the toilet crystal clean because sooner or later it may be demanded of them to do so.
Another way is to appreciate the schedule of the US Marine’s boot camp. In normal circumstances, after the morning chores and breakfast at 5 p.m. each day, there is usually one session of training from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. succeeded by another that goes up to 5.30 p.m. The latter part of the evening is dedicated to drill instructions. Learning to appreciate this can be a good way to manage the stress of daily training.
The fourth way to survive US marine’s boot camp is to be physically fit at the outset. The body must be flexible enough to endure the fast paced sit ups, multiple abdominal sit-ups and several miles of running in less than fourteen minutes. The fifth way is to share the ordeal with the rest of the pals who may be undergoing the same torture. This creates a sense of oneness and one feels less discriminated against.
Thus to survive the US marine’s boot camp, the recruited must not only be in good bodily shape but must also develop a positive mind set. All this can be learned in an upcoming guide that will reveal more on the endurance of the marines at training.
