Congrats. I can't wait to be in your shoes. Although I'll be in Great Lakes after graduation.

Congratulations on graduating!

Since you are going to the same A School location as me...when do you fly out to Pensacola and how much time did/do you have for liberty in Chicago?

Congrats on the graduation, I'm sure it was a great moment in your life.

What was the most challenging aspect of RTC?
Did you advance your rate while in boot?

Thanks

Graduation ends at roughly 10:30. You have liberty that moment until whenever your RDC allows (usually 2100 ). Then you fly out anytime between 0030 - 0700 that Saturday morning.

Hardest part about boot for me was the mental aspect of being broken down and having zero control of your life. You will miss home for about 3 weeks. Go to church on Sundays! It's hard always being on edge being like "are the RDCs gonna be in a good mood today? Or treat us all like dog craps again!?"

I had college so I was an E3. I was starboard watch and it was a terribly hard job. I had a lot of exercising because of other people messing up ok the deck log.

Starboard watch yes lol. I was in charge of the entire deck log, and creating the watch bill everyday for 24 hour watches. Its hard work.

Pushups yes, but mainly10 ten counts, 30 pushups, pillar bridges, running planks in that order.
