Plan “A” Retired
i just got Pro-rec last week for EDO option, heading to OCS sometime soon, I see this one has a lot info for OCS but it is little old and last post was 2016, wonder if everything today still same? I am active duty and was in navy boot camp 2 years ago, how is OCS compare to enlist boot camp? (if anyone here was active duty before that commissioned ) , thank you
Well I’ve never been to OCS, but did Navy boot camp in 1987. Boot camp now is way different now then back then, I bet shore patrol, and marching party don’t exist anymore (they were motivational programs for recruits that didn’t want to learn or conform to naval standards, you can either be strong, or learn).
My son went to OCS last year, and his experiences there were way tougher than mine in boot camp, physically, and academically. In one episode he got PT’ed until he puked, got a break then more PT.
But he did say all in all it’s dished out pretty fairly across the board.
Mind over matter, good luck.
