Hell no don't exercise before you enlist. Eat little debbie cakes, smoke alot of cigarettes and join .. I mean, it's the military, why would you need to be in any kind of shape? Don't even sweat it, kid.

Don't forget to drink lots & lots of adult beverages!

If you're allowed to enlist the Drill SGTs will have lots of fun with you. Can you say "remedial PT"?

Question Please be honest

I'm thinking about joining the army, but i'm not sure if I can make it through basic training. I'm 28 yrs old, and I smoke. Can an officer give me their honest opinion on what basic training is like?

You do realize that enlisted and officers BOTH go through BCT.

Only a fool asks for an officers opinion when enlisted are around, don't join the Army.

Did I tell you my hubby works in an Aviation Brigade? He's not jumping out of planes by any means... yet at least... He's an office guy. I am about all the adventure he can handle.
