Quick question... Do people under the AECF(ET/FC) get a special briefing for more on criminal records?

I have never done anything wrong, I am just curious.

I'm so glad I found this site, and found this post. I have multiple friends who recently got back from boot camp and couldn't give as much detail as you did in this post. I'm confident that boot camp is going to be cake for me now that I know exactly what to expect, and exactly what I need to study in my two months left here! Thanks so much!

I am leaving soon and I am just trying to get everything in order. I am going to bring an address book along with me to RTC. I was wondering if I could write down a short version of this list of day to day life to help keep me prepared for whats coming while I'm there.

They didnt check my little composition book, so I would think you would be alright but do so at your own risk. Worst case is they rip the page out?

It says that if you are on P Hold it doesn't count towards your time at bootcamp. What do you do on those days and do they pay you extra for those days?

P-days refers to "processing days" you do paperwork and medical inprocessing. You also wait for the right number of people to form a division. You are paid from the day you ship.

Great post and this is wonderful information to know! Here is something I don't think a lot of people think about, how often do you get to use the restroom. I know I have to pee all the time and reading this it sounds like you have to drink lots of water. I need a potty break darnit!

Also, in the mornings when you are woke up, about how much time do you have to get ready? Is it a wake up and yelled "you have 20 minutes to $hit, shower, and shave!" I know in the mornings I can't be that fast!

thanks

My brother was there in 2010, and he said his RDC's would make head calls all the time. They know you're going to have to go after pounding water all day long. And as for the morning thing, I'm sure you'll adapt after being there for a few days

My fingers are crossed taht I'll adapt soon! I'm a decent morning person, but I fear I'll be late on time.

Yeah I carry a gallon of water throughout the day and usually end up drinking even more then that. So probably every 30 minutes, I'm pissing. So I really hope that it doesn't become an issue because I heard the recommended amount of water to drink during a day is 2 gallons at bootcamp.

There are occasionally pictures taken (besides your portrait), but it's not a regular thing.

Red face Thank you!

Thank you for posting this. My daughter just shipped yesterday, 85 days before she was scheduled.
I am a member of Navy4Mom's, and an admin directed me here before she shipped, but then, she shipped quickly. I love seeing this to know what she is doing and going to be doing.
I also went to eBay and found her job coin and purchased a challenge coin directly from PIRgifts, says they help you. It'll be nice to have it before she tells me about it.
Thank you so much for all you do!!

The general day-to-day framework of RTC isn't going to change much... still the same length, still the same evolutions and classes that need to be completed... and still the same in-processing during P-Days. What changes are the little things: you may wear tennis shoes longer with your NWU's... you may get issued an iPad... female's may not have to get their hair cut.

What's going to vary the most is how each individual RDC chooses to run their division... there are training objectives that have to be met, and external pressure from Admin... but it's generally up the the RDC how the Division is run. That's why you'll hear a lot of "it depends" answers. Phone calls? IT? Yelling? Leadership positions and promotion? It's all largely up to your RDC... some don't give phone calls except for the "I'm here" and "I'm a Sailor now" calls... some don't IT much... some don't promote people... it all just depends.

One of the divisions in my training group NEVER got IT. Their RDCs didn't believe in it. Needless to say, all of our jaws dropped...

We never did Divisional ITE... I went through shortly after the water hazing scandal, so there were all kinds of regulations in place for ITE... Admin had to be notified in writing, other division's RDC's had to be present, which meant it had to be done around their schedule as well... as my RDC's put it, it's punishing a dog 3 days after it's pissed on the rug.

Wow that's ridiculous. We did one OFFICIAL ITE session which included announcing it over the 1MC, placing a sign on the door, stuff like that. IT was on our first day of fit for full lol

The rest of the times we had shady ITE sessions. Same thing as ITE but using some sort of loophole in the system

Thank you so much for this excellent thread! My husband is on his 6th day of bootcamp. Today is his first Sunday is he probably having a easier day today? If he needed his wisdom teeth pulled when is that done?

Smile Weeks in BC

I have a question that I am sure I am going to feel stupid about once I get a reply but here it goes.

The "weeks" in Boot Camp are 5 day weeks as opposed to a normal 7 day week. If my SR was on Week 2 Day 1 on 2/19 then on 2/26 he would be on Week 3 Day 1, correct because even though 2/19 was a Friday they don't count Sat and Sun as "training days", right?

Days in bootcamp are actually kind of complex. You don't necessarily move days until you accomplish whatever was supposed to be done that day - we were P-4 for 3 or 4 days waiting for Medical to have space for us to get our shots. But once you finish P-days things are a little more regular.

Saturdays and Sundays are accounted for as "#SAT" and "#SUN" if I recall correctly. Generally "Day 1" will start on a Monday, but holidays can throw things off. I was in bootcamp for Christmas and New Years' and both were weekdays, so with the breaks included our weeks started looking like
M T W T F S S
4-4 4-5 5-1 5-2 5-3 5SAT 5SUN
5-4 5-5 6-1 6-2 6-3 6SAT 6SUN

Probably in general the first week when you're adjusting to a new routine on minimal sleep.

After that it depends on your individual strengths.

I don't see any reason why he would. It doesn't go against any rules that I'm aware of. The worst that could happen would be him getting it taken away and maybe doing some pushups or something.
