What Army Recruits Go Through At Boot Camp 5
UCcyq283he07B7_KUX07mmtA

Here's an inside look at the United States Army's intense 22-week basic training known as OSUT, which stands for One Station Unit Training. Senior Video Correspondent Graham Flanagan spent four days at the Army's Maneuver Center of Excellence located inside the Fort Benning military installation near Columbus, Georgia, where he observed different companies at various stages of training.

After a processing period that takes one to two weeks, recruits experience what's known as a "shark attack," when drill sergeants create a high-stress environment through a series of rapid-fire instructions and commands. Once the intensity subsides and training begins, the dynamic between the drill sergeants and the recruits evolves into one found between a teacher and students in a classroom.

Despite rainy conditions that rarely let up during filming, we saw various dynamic aspects of training, such as marksmanship, tear gas exposure, and MOUT, which stands for military operations in urban terrain.

In the video, we incorrectly refer to duffle bags as rucksacks. Insider regrets the error.

Not a joke: had a soldier in my company that came out of the gas chamber and said "I've had bong hits that were harder than that" & the Drill Sergeant laughed.

The following are all real quotes from DIs I've seen on youtube.

Airforce: Your feet should be angled at 22.5 degrees from the imaginary center line cutting directly in front of you.
Marines: Your feet will be 45 degrees apart!
Army: You should be able to fit a slice of pizza between your toes.
