My little brother signed up for the Army last week, he leaves out Jan. 4 for basic training. What should he expect? The recruiter gave him a DVD with the exercises they'll do and what level of fitness he should be at, and it doesn't seem too tough.
But, how much would being in better shape help him as far as advancement? Also, how available is boxing/wrestling/MMA while you're in the service?
He signed up for 4 years I believe, and signed up on the college program and says he will go for at least an associates degree. All in all, I think it will be the best thing that ever happened to him, so long as he doesn't get shot.
