Does anyone have some hints or tricks that will make US Air Force BMT easier?
I leave for US Air Force basic training in 4 days. Does anyone have any last minute hints or tricks they could share that would make me a little less nervous about this huge jump in my life?
I went through it 20 years ago. BMT is easy. All you need to do is everything they say exactly how they tell you to do it. Shed your homesickness and the thoughts that you made the wrong decision as soon as possible. Accept that you will be there for 6 weeks and get into the routines. Above all maintain your military bearing. This means that you are always on your game no matter how stressed they make you. It is a game and you need to play it. They tell you the rules of the game and all you need to do is follow them. The TI's are hilarious, especially when they are yelling at someone else. Keep your head down and do your part to make your flight successful. There will be toxic people in your flight that whine and complain, stay away from them. Bring shower shoes with you to basic and not much else. The early leaders are usually fired because they are responsible for everything their subordinates do. If you want to be a leader wait awhile and make sure that you are ready for it, let them pick you, don't volunteer. Good luck and aim high. Joining the Air Force was the best decision I ever made.
+1 Couldn't have said it better!
Don't give up. I went through US Army BCT but all initial military entry courses have the same goal I'm sure: Break you down, and build you up strong, mentally and physically.
Don't forget why you joined in the first place and don't let yourself become a dirt bag. Push through the pain and when things get difficult, adjust fire and drive on!
Good luck with your career!

Does anyone have potty training tips?I have a two year old that is pretty stubborn about potty training. She loves imitating me, and sits on her potty, even pretends to wipe, but when I go to pull her pants down she freaks out and screams "no, no, no mama". Are there any tips or tricks...
