    My grandpa is a retired Army SgtMaj (E-7). He's probably rolling in his grave!!!

    Heh, I still cannot believe that they (Army recruits) get base liberty long before graduation. I actually met some at the Fort Lost in the Woods PX.

    Probably..I'm hoping it's not some PC crap..Whatever the reason, it doesn't seem very productive to me..Two weeks is a long time when the training is so demanding. Maybe they should just wait and start em later, that seems like a better idea to me.

    In Marine boot camp, you get holiday routine Christmas Day. Free time in the morning and grabass PT in the afternoon, but there's no liberty, and definitely no leave.

    I think I got half of the Sunday off the weekend before graduation in which we could go the bowling alley and buy some smokes and a Coke. Everything else was closed.
