I don’t have the statistics but I think 95% will survive just fine.
The other 5% will *maybe* come back with some broken bones, some mental disorder, a torn ACL, a torn meniscus, etc... nothing serious to worry about :evil: :laugh:
5% is quite a lot no?
Like about 1000 per year
A lot meh?
:lol:

P/S: Don’t take me seriously. Most people will do just fine. Maybe a sprain or a cut here and there. Seriously injuries rarely happen as long as soldiers pay attention to safety.

My DS got enlisted last week. After the first day when they were allowed to call back, they hardly had chance to call therafter.

Also, got to wake up at 4.00am plus to do laundry cos no time to do so before lights off at 10.30 PM. 😣

My little brother also got enlisted last week, he said that exact same thing. No time to shower because their training eats into their admin time in the evening. :(

Exactly what my DS told us. Shouldn't they manage their training more efficiently?

That bad ? My DS was enlisted last week too but didn’t hear him about waking up early to do their laundry. Is yr DS in the leadership batch as in the training will be more tougher than the rest ?

Being inefficient is also part of the training :lol:
You have to be trained to rush to wait, wait to rush.
