I'm off to bootcamp this afternoon. I'm sure this one will be a little different from the one I survived a bazillion years ago. At that long ago bootcamp we had to qualify with the M-16, use gas masks, identify foxholes, and get through obstacle courses ... to say nothing of learning to march to cadence and salute (and who to salute). It was exhausting, and I ended up with an injured knee and rehab, but I made it through.
