and what happens if u get warhawk for everything?? i got no problem with the push ups, sit ups, and pull ups but on running i barely got 9:20 something and i ran it hard but with practice i should be able to get 8:55
No... and nothing. Bring what your recruiter tells you. It's like a change of clothes and thats pretty much it. They take all your stuff from you on day one or two and put you right into your uniform and give you this credit card thing to go buy all your toiletries... which is actually just an advance on your first paycheck which is pretty much half a bag of peanuts. Don't wear identifiable clothing, don't shave your head, don't have overly long hair or the barber will yell at you for taking up too much of his time. Just be normal.
BMT is just that. BASIC training. Nothing that you accomplish in BMT will have any relevance to you after BMT. You're learning how to follow directions and how to identify who to listen to, customs and courtesies, some weapons training, Physical fitness training, and just generally getting beaten down. Don't fight it, just listen do your time and get the eff outta there. It goes by quick if you lay low and don't draw attention to yourself. Don't try to out do anyone, don't try to achieve any of their "goals" (which change from year to year, I don't even know wtf warhawk is), don't try to step up and be a "leader," no one in BMT is a "leader" of anything. There's just about 5 guys who will have it 100x worse than the other 25 people you're living with because they are getting yelled out for everything, and guess what, it doesn't get them anything special when it's all said and done. Focus on following directions, don't suck, don't be a douche, and you'll be fine.
Don't go crazy in Tech School either. Happens to a lot of people. They leave BMT and all of a sudden they forget they can't get stoned, drink underage, or mouth off. Blows my mind.
Also, make sure you have your sh1t straight before getting to your first base. I hate it when I get some new Airman that all of a sudden forgot you have to wear a tie with a long sleeve shirt, or wants to wear his jewelry all over the place. Makes me want to throat punch some b1tches.
What job did you get?
