I helped guide my brother in law through the enlistment process and he is now in basic training. At least he isn’t sweating his balls off like I was in June, Lackland can get pretty hot!
I sure hope he isn’t sitting up at night cursing my name right now. That six weeks can seem rough, but it’s actually pretty quick and easy if you stay low. That’s what I told him when he was leaving!
“Keep your mouth shut and your head low.”
Honestly if I can survive basic… anyone can. I absolutely hate people yelling at me or being around stressed out individuals. That pretty much sums up basic training in a sentence and the AF program is a breeze compared to some services. It’s all for a purpose and is really a huge “game” to test your mental stability. Hopefully he realizes that soon if he hasn’t already figured it out!
The wife is worried because it is her brother. I reassured her that they won’t be training him to be Rambo in the Air Force. He’ll come out with some goals, some more confidence, and possibly a career. That was the goal all along!
