Do Not Go Through With It. Back out.
You will become a hired-hand for murderers, and sacrifice your
soul and peace of mind.
Do not join a dastardly band who kill innocent children, women and men indiscriminately,
and by the millions.
Don't Do It!

Here's a bit of what I remember from basic training at Ft. Bliss...
When the drill sergeant stands nose to nose with you and asks you if you like him, the only correct answer is "I'm not here to like you Drill Sergeant!"
Don't carry any items with you into basic that can be considered "contraband" (cigarettes, candy, girly magazines, etc) unless you fully expect to give them away the moment you step off the bus.
No matter how unbearable the drill sergeants make your stay in basic, bear in mind that they aren't trying to tear you down but to build you up so that when the time comes you will be better able to take whatever it is that the enemy tries to put you through.
When you enter your barracks for the first time, pay attention to the floor. If you see a unit crest painted on the floor DO NOT walk across it. Always walk around it.
Never rat on your fellow soldier when they mess up, no matter what. The men you train with may one day hold your life in their hands. Don't give them any reason to hesitate to save your skin when the going gets tough.
These are just a few good tips, and I've seen other great tips posted on here by others. Good luck to you.

All of your platoon will be given a lot of hassles. Some will seek to pass their repressed anger on to those that appear to be weaker. This is the classic bully situation. Don't allow youself to be the bottom of the pecking order.
