BITE YOUR TONGUE!!!
It's not OCS, it's OIS. They are two completely different schools. OIS types are doctors, nurses, and lawyers. It's a limited cirriculum and taught by other Navy Officers and Chiefs.

OCS is a 3months course for aviators, SWO's, SEALS, submariners, intel, supply, engineers, and a few others. It's run mainly by USMC Drill Instructors.

And one of the reasons I turned down the Navy's super generous offers to become a Nuclear Officer, even though they would have paid me to finish college. I pussed out.

I was enlisted from 1989-1998, Got out, had a good business etc. Why Navy, because they were the only ones accepting civilians into the program at USUHS. Basically O-1E pay to go to college there at Bethesda Naval Medical Center and a commission as an officer in the Navy, so my job technically is that of student for the next 4 years plus a 1 year internship, after that my job will be Clinical Psychologist.

Clinical Psychologist, huh. Welp, your gana be busy with all these messed up ppl coming from the sandbox. Someone told me the statistics for the Army is about 1 in 4 comeing back from deployments with some type of psy issue. On the other hand if you get out, on the civ side you will make bank! Especially if you stay in the DC area. Anyways, GOODLUCK to ya, BROOOOTHER!!!

Getting as many of those guys healthy is about as rewarding as it gets. You can't fix 'em all unfortunately, but every success makes it worth it. I plan on staying long term (15 years from today, minimum.) Not worried about making bank, just enough to be comfortable.

I am sure I remember her, I have a thing for cute asian girls. Anyway OIS is going well. End of Week 1, and yes, we have base liberty which enables me to get on the Internet. (SamNavy, it's almost as tough as OCS... NOT.) I'm having a good time albeit somewhat tired. They have been running us around alot but it's not nearly as abusive an environment as OCS or Basic for Enlisted troops, and it is most decisively not Marine Corp Boot. We do get to drill with Marines though.

You're gonna be amazed at how quickly your body adjust to the new hours. What time the gotcha gettin' up? For me, it was reville at 0500 and straight out for PT at 0515, w/taps at 2200... for 3months. After 2 weeks, you'll be used to it.

Well we were on the "line" at 0400 everyday pretty much until the weekend.

Went like this.

Day T-1 Sat around, laughed and joked like it was summer camp.

Day 0 Same as Day T-1 except us prior service people were expecting Day 2's wake up call on Day 1.

Day 1 0500 reville - Height and Weight, marched us around to get oriented and inbriefed.

Day 2 0330 wake-up call - Real RDC's show up for the first time and harass us. Yelled at just about everyone but me and a few other priors who were smart enough to already have bunks made at 0300 and be in "uniform of the day" PT gear. Started in with the pushups. More running about base, Uniform Store.

Day 3 0400 Urinanalysis - Got yelled at for not being able to control my body and forced to drink 5 liters of water... pissed like hell the rest of the day. 1st day of PT in the afternoon. Passed 3rd class swim test that AM.

Day 4 0400 PRT (Physical Readiness Test) 40% failure rate. Nice. 2nd Fastest Runner was an Ensign named, get this... Ensign Ensign. Also happed to be one of the shortest girls here... runs like greased lightning (marathon runner.) Went to dental almost all day. Briefings the rest of the day after that.

Day 5 0400 Went to briefings, did more PT. Pretty busy day of briefings for travel benefits, english and writing bios.

Day 6 0500 Went to uniform store to get tailored uniforms. Got back, had lunch, got uniforms squared away, went down for inspection. Granted liberty for rest of Sat and Sun.

Day 7 0600 Got up "late" today.

Not too bad.

Mark

PS - Taps is 2200.

LOL, we got in trouble today... locker left unlocked... OUCH!

Anyway PRT scores... sad. 71 situps, 50 pushups and a 14:28 run. I passed though. Good Medium (or low I can't remember) overall.
