What is Boot Camp?
Boot Camp is a program at the Medical University of South Carolina’s Wellness Center. The class meets Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 6-7 am. Mostly calistenics and running.
The class is taught by Marines who are in an enlisted commissioning program. The Marines are great motivators. They are full-time students at the Citadel (they are not cadets but attend classes with them), have their military obligations as part of the Marine unit at the Citadel, and most have families. All of them are Sergeants (E5) and above. All have several years in the Corps and most have been in combat. And yet they take the time to come workout with a bunch of civilians who do jumping jacks like the Iraqi army (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSJokTJLZu8). They’re a pretty inspiring group of guys.
Love this Marine recruiting commercial.
