The first step in becoming a marine is going through Marine Corps boot camp. There are many different challenges you will face during your training. Listed below you will find three of these challenges:
Working as a team is essential to being a good marine. In order to get you into the mindset of working as a team rather than as an individual you will go through many drills. These are all designed to show you that you need those around you as much as they need you for a successful mission to be possible.
Rifle training is very important to the Marine Corps boot camp program. They force you to become intimate with your rifle. You learn respect for the rifle as you learn how to properly fire and maintain your rifle. You learn everything there is to know about your rifle right down to the serial number. The time spent in this type of training will make you experts on rifles.
The twelve week training camp is designed to be as tough as possible on you. You will be pushed to your limit. This is designed as a test as well as a training exercise. You will discover how to tap into pools of strength you never knew existed. This will help you to be a stronger soldier.
