For my company at least, that could not be further from the truth. First set was filled with a lot of 'grey space.' When the cadre got tired of doing a lot of rack and uniform races, we started doing shoe shining sessions and pro-knowledge discussions. We still had a lot of those honor and leadership sessions, but as far as doing anything exciting, we only ran the O-course once during the first three weeks. By the last week of first set, our cadre would often joke with us, and standing on the bulkhead became a contest of bearing. One cadre patrolled the halls with a super soaker while we were stripping and waxing our decks. I would almost dare to say that the last week was fun, or maybe just entertaining.peskemom said:Note, most of this is the SECOND half of the program, which is designed to be actually less stressful than the 1st half.
