Stumbled upon some pretty cool videos that do a good job of describing what recruits and officer candidates go through.
First, this video describes the early few days of boot camp at Great Lakes.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvKAhmgkoj4[/youtube]
The next video covers Officer Candidate School in Pensacola.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_v_netqzAmk[/youtube]
Both videos talk about shaping a disparate group of men and women into Sailors and Officers. But the common theme for both is teamwork. Work as a team – when the team succeeds, so do you.
