BCT Day 3

Today we took our PT(physical fitness) test. The drill sergeant screwed me on it. He waited until I did 25 push-ups before telling me that they were not proper form and didn’t count. I only had 20 correct ones left in me after getting smoked earlier at 0500.

Today we took our PT(physical fitness) test. The drill sergeant screwed me on it. He waited until I did 25 push-ups before telling me that they were not proper form and didn’t count. I only had 20 correct ones left in me after getting smoked earlier at 0500. That’s ok though. I get 2 more chances to show his stupid ass what I’m made of.

My platoon kept making the same mistake and we got smoked royally for it. Shirts completely soaked in sweat. We had a talk after that though, and made progress. We’re starting to get the team concept.

The first week of basic involves boring classes in which you get smoked for falling asleep. It happened to a lot of people. Tsk tsk, no discipline.

Nothing really interesting yet. We’re just getting smoked a lot. Sorry for the boring letter, but I’m too tired. Good night. I miss you all so much and I’m eager to start receiving letters.
