BCT Day 43

Ow. So much pain. Today was one of the two hardest days of BCT. We learned Individual Tactical Training (ITT). Ow. We did high crawls and low crawls on the dirt. It wasn’t a nice soft pit this time. It was hard, rocky, nasty dirt with tree roots and spiders. I went under barbed wire, held my rifle behind logs, and crawled in ditches.

Ow. So much pain. Today was one of the two hardest days of BCT. We learned Individual Tactical Training (ITT). Ow. We did high crawls and low crawls on the dirt. It wasn’t a nice soft pit this time. It was hard, rocky, nasty dirt with tree roots and spiders. I went under barbed wire, held my rifle behind logs, and crawled in ditches. All this training is to learn concealed movement in battle. I had my face camouflaged with green and black clay stuff. By the end I was so dirty and nasty, and I do mean nasty, that I looked like that kid from Peanuts who always has a cloud of dirt around him. We all did.

Ow. Then we pissed the DS off for something, so we marched back at an EXTREMELY FAST pace with about 50 lbs on our back. I had to run a whole lot just to keep up with the DS. His back was nice and free of heavy ****, so it was extremely hard to keep up. We had one guy pass out. My arms are barely hanging now. I can’t even do 40 decent push-ups. When I get my arms back in a few days, I’ll be SO strong for the final PT test next week. I must’ve done 300 push- ups yesterday. If you punch me on my chest now, I’ll probably cringe in muscle pain for five minutes and then get up to beat the crap out of you. I also got some cough drops in the mail. Thanks mom & dad.

Ow. I ate my first Meal Ready to Eat (MRE) today. Those are the military meals that come in a 12×6 box and last years. It was awesome. Ow. I’ll tell you more tomorrow, since it hurts to write and breathe at once.
