Activities for the Armed Services

People entering the Armed Forces for the first time go to the reception centers and then to basic training or recruit training centers. Often these two types of centers are in the same installation. At the latter begins the concentrated training that is intended to transform civilians into military-thinking, military-acting, and military-looking men and women.

This transitional stage tests the mettle of all who enter it. The long working hours, the rigorous physical exercise, and the stern discipline, coupled with the separation from home and the necessity to live in barracks, where there is no privacy, require many adjustments in living habits.
