1.) You Make Lifelong Friends
The friends you make in basic training will be friends for life.
Even after you retire, you will always have these men and women to go to for support, advice, and shooting the shit.
Although most recruits end up going on different paths based on MOS, desire for a career, and other factors, many tend to stay in touch with their buddies from boot camp.
