I recently received an email from a man who is about to ship off to USMC boot camp. He wanted to know if I had any pieces of advice for him before he goes. This is a subject I could talk about for hours, so I had to force myself to boil things down to the absolute essentials. I offer ten points that I found to be useful from my own experience. You’ll do fine. You will rise to the occasion, and will be surprised at the progress you have made by the final week.
