 I ship out in 3 months and I have been battling a internal hemorrhoid i know it sounds gross but I'm scared when I get to cape my once they do the physical I so be DQ. How are the physical once you get there.  I already passed my meps physical with my issue going on and it went fine I'm very healthy and I don't want them to send me home any and all information is helpful thanks


You're going to be put under A LOT of stress, more than you have probably ever had in your life, that is not going to go to well with your digestive system, your stomach nor your intestines. Furthermore, your diet will change and you will be doing a lot of physical activity.  You need to bring this up to your doctor.  You do not want to be one of the people who gets sent to the ward for a couple weeks then to a discharge hold element where they might hold you for months until they bring you back up to your normal health before they send you back home.

Just to double check - the items listed in the Helmsan to bring should be items that can be carried on a plane i.e.: lotion - toothpaste (travelsize). Its not clear in the manual.

Couple quick questions for the first week pt test will the running be done on a track or a street or what? I know I should meet the graduation time the first week Does anyone know the time for the first week and the final time I can run a 13 minute mile and a half right now. Any shippers shipping on September 26th?

If the weather is good you will run outside on the 0.5 mile long track for 3 laps. If the weather is bad you run inside around the gym for something like 29 laps around the gym. For the run time just run 12:51 or less, it is pointless to try to figure out the minimum forming standard, they change it all the time anyway. Not passing part of the fitness test just puts extra stress on you, worrying about being sent home sucks. I missed situps by 3 during the first test. I had to worry about that for 3 weeks until the week 4 fitness test and if i didnt pass then i would be reverted. I passed the run at 11:29 during the first week and that was better than any of my training times before I shipped. I ran better in boot camp because i was much more motivated to go fast and stay with the group.

So me and my twin brother have graduated high school and long story short we were going Navy but changed our minds and decided to go Coast Guard. We can do all the PT requirments besides the run which we are both about 45 seconds off but we still have a month before we ship off so we should be okay. My question is if one of us was to get reverted would they revert both of us or just one? I’m not depending on my brother or anything I just want to know if my parents will have to fly to cape may twice to see both of us graduate. We live in Washington state which is why I think it’s a big deal since plane tickets aren’t cheap. I’m assuming they won’t care what my parents have to do and they will just revert one of us but I’m just wanting to make sure. I’m not saying I’m 100% sure one of us will get reverted but just in case I would like to let me parents know

They would only revert one of you, the buddy program only gets you into the same company, after that you guys are on your own for meeting all requirements.

If one of you can't pass the PT standards, there will only be 1 of you graduating. With a month out, you should be well under the run time. You are not going to get to boot camp and all of the sudden be faster and have more energy. You're going to be tired and it is going to be cold. Your recruiter should be informed that you cannot pass the complete PT test right now.

Hey, 

Recent bootcamp grad right here (S-195). From my experience, I stayed for 4 companies after being rephased 3 times. So i have to spend an additional 4 weeks since one of them is 2 weeks behind another company.  The first time I failed probation in the early weeks since i fell behind. But, its not a bad thing.  The CC's make every effort to help you succeed and the extra time they give is more of a blessing to get you acquitted to the customs in bootcamp.  The other 2 times are medical so I was placed on hold, but the good thing is we get more time to catch up with the next company as we study (yes, bootcamp is not just brawn), get our lives "squared away", and practice what we need work on.  Important thing about is be fast, be loud, do what you're told, and stay positive and remember the very reason why you want to be there in the first place. Bootcamp is not for the light hearted, but it is not impossible to succeed.

Shipping in 4 days. I have a question about the week 1 PFT, so at the moment I exceed the graduation requirements with a 11:20 1.5 mile, 46 sit ups and 40 push-ups in a minute. So I’m not too worried about it but I’m just wondering what the requirements are for week 1 PFT. Are they the same as graduation or are they easier? I’ve seen people online say it’s the same and I’ve heard that the requirements are 11 push-ups, 21 sit ups, and a 14:00 1.5 mile?

Tomorrow I go to MEPS and am going to boot camp ASAP afterwords (I was told it would take about a month). As of now, I can pass everything for the PFT. I am just wondering about the push ups, do my arms need to be close together while performing the push ups or does it really not matter? I've never really received a definitive answer, and I would like to know what to practice this final month. Thank you!
