Misha still doesn’t know what company he will go to. The guys are promised they won’t be made do any hard physical exercises on the first days. They will only walk in the fresh air in the morning to get used to new boots.

They will have to get accustomed to the daily routine, have to wash their socks, shave in the morning.

The food is promised to be good.

  1. Looks like their military receiving is a little easier than the US Marines. They didn’t seem to have people shouting at them from the moment they got on the bus. Maybe they wait on that until the second day.

      • Minimum enlistment is, I believe, 3 years. There are occasionally 2 year enlistments but that time starts AFTER training is complete, so for some MOSs you end up with almost 3 years anyway.

  2. Seems quite nice, How does the company affectation work, if there is nobody wanting to go in reccon or whatever ? The girl in the 3rd pic is quite hot, hope them guys can see her during the service 😀

  3. First moment of a US Marine’s training:

    Day 1 of training in the US Army:

    …I’m sensing there might be a difference between the way we do thongs and the way other countries do it. I think I like our way better.

  4. I’ve seen quite a few videos of the ‘first day in the army’ from different countries – so yeah, based on those videos..blame me, i dont know better – only one that had the ‘screaming DI’ was the US one.

    On a side note, do US DI’s get a sick leave if they loose their voice, or get reprimanded?

  5. The women is so hot!

    I want to marry her have children with her!

    • It’s part of the training process… the point being what they want is irrelevant and what the Arny wants gets done… and it IS more efficient than having people dress and undress various parts of their anatomy all day long.

  6. My god they have it easy, when I joined the Royal Air Force the day we started our basic training we were made to stand on the train from RAF Cardington to RAF Bridgnorth 120mls, even though there were seats. Uniform!! we were told if it fits you your deformed. During gas warfare training, we were told to line up and run through like good Jewish people. Unbeknown to the instructor one chap was Jewish. The barrack room had been trashed by the outgoing troop, they did this on the instructions of the DI. Mud all over the walls as well as coal and cinders trodden into the floor, then we had an inspection at 06:00hrs in the morning. And it didn’t stop there.
