New RTC Video

Check out this Navy propaganda video aimed at making the mothers of new recruits confident that their children won't be having a hard time at Recruit Training:

I was impressed to see that Recruits now have bedpans instead of lockers; that would seem to make it more realistic. The small arms training part was also interesting

What are some of your memories of initial accession training? Do you think the change to a less stressful Boot Camp is a problem? (Personally, I loved boot camp, and wasn't stressed out at all; this was in 1983. My CCs were a couple of Filipino EM1s with great senses of humor. The first full day still feels like the longest day of my life. OCS wasn't hard either, but I think that without Boot Camp experience, it would have been a lot tougher.)
