    It is, i have no idea why it even exists in the first place if humans are born to seek pleasure. there's no pleasure of having bald white guys in smokey the bear hats screaming at you almost 24/7

    The purpose of Boot Camp is to give basic military training to recruits and to weed out and remove those who should not be there.  In other words, those recruits who are not suited for the military life.  It's better to identify them at boot camp rather than spend money training them only to watch them crash and burn a year later.  

    Listen, if you can't learn to manage the easy stuff like parade ground drill, making your bed and wearing your uniform properly then you can't expect to be allowed to drive a tank, maintain & repair fighter jets or even carry a loaded weapon.  If you can't deal with an instructor yelling at you then you can't be trusted to deal with the chaos of real combat where your life and the lives of others may depend on your actions.  If you can't achieve the physical requirements then you should not be there.  

    Boot Camp / Basic Training is a game.

    stay home and leave the military to the big boys.  it is the way it is because it works to produce soldiers.  the military is not day care for adults

  • Then don't go there.
