    My brother is in week 2 or 3 of boot camp. He sent me a ltter saying the first two days are hell and he's had to do some standing thing for 5 minutes and all his muscles are burning.


    I'm just wondering a coupel things:

    What the frig is "P-day"?
    What is "I.T." (as used in reference to being an alternative to beatings)?
    What is an ROC? He said his "Knows who he is".

    I'm wondering also, when is he gonna get to play with some guns and start writing to me about them??

    P= processing
    IT= intensive trainging.... pushups, situps etc
    ROC- not sure..... did he say RDC? if so its recruit division commander, same thing as drill srgt

    yea P- days are the very beginning of boot and you run around in sweats all day long and you dont really do any workout(well at least your not soposed to). IT is intensive training which means he got in trouble and got punnished. and He probably meant RDC which is like the drill sargent. BOOTCAMP WAS FUN!!!!

    Ha ha ha, thanks guys.

    He actually said he's managed to avoid IT, but when one guys screws up, the whole unit gets punished.
    I'm writing him a letter now.
