    Looking at the pix from today's download, there has been a discernible change in the faces of our BCT's. They all look like they are on the edge of exhaustion, no smiles or bright faces. Just a series of downcast and beaten expressions. I went on Facebook and saw my DD's classmates having fun water skiing and having a blast...couldn't be more proud of my DD's choice...they are all just AWESOME!

    Having been through BCT three times: once as a Doolie and twice as "Cadre" I can tell you...they are NOT beaten...

    They're just tired.

    The schedule, the adjustment to the altitude, the total and complete "not knowing what's next, what time it is, etc...etc..." really does wear you down.

    But they'll be SO much stronger and their confidence will be SO high when this is over...:thumb:

    We did receive some pics from the coach after the AD briefing for IC's and they were smiling. I am sure they will be smiling on the 4th even though there are no fireworks this year. Just to get out and relax a bit. They are taking in alot of stuff and the emotions and physical activity are making them tired. But like Fleiger said and DS c2c said they fell good about it afterward.

    No pain no gain as they say

    The AD brief is for all basics. It's where you go whether you're a recruit, preferred walk-on, or just interested to find out what to do and who the coach is. In my case wrestling practice took place of intramurals after that brief for basic.
