    Yes......first off be in good physical shape.......run, lift, swim etc.  Some folks leave due to being terribly out of shape.

    Attitude wise:  Be positive.....realize that you must conform to a new way of life.....a good one and I did it for 30 years and continue to use the tools I have learned over the years.  Realize that the company commanders will push you all for good reasons.  The also want to make all of you in your company to become a TEAM.  You can quietly foster that amongst all your fellow recruits and eventually emerge as a leader in your own company.  Help everyone, carry your own load and volunteer to help those that train you:  Ie:  ask for more responsibility once you get a feel for things.  The Coast Guard is a great career.......not one regret from me or any of my family members.  Go Coast Guard.  Opportunity abounds and alot of it depends upon your own initiative.....you need to be even keeled, respectful, honorable, have high integrity and devoted to the mission.........Set your priorities and for now it is to have a good boot camp and come out of there as one of the top performers......stand out without being boatful, be humble.

    Hello,

    My husbnad just came home from PitStop (prior service school) In cape may and well I am going to rely his experince, make sure that you can SWIM 100 Meters, you need to kneed water for 5 mins. Expect to be put to the test in every way, you will learn to fire a 9mm hand gun, if you are a problem shipmate you will be dealt with and the world will know it. Be responsible and listen and you will be fine however make sure you are in SHAPE. Mind, Body and Soul. Hope this helps...........
