And everyone else involved here.
I understand that tests are all a part of it.
but the real "test" is how you preform when
as our old Gunny said, "when the rubber meets the road"
In my opinion, I don't give a rat's a$$ if you pushed ibuprophen
in a line unit and nothing else. If you were good at it and did your
best everyday to do your job, then by God test be damned
BTW. I was never very good at tests either.
But I can Shoot and run like a psyco to this day.
43 years young and still doing it!

I am a doc who served with the Corps at Camp Pendleton from 1985 - 1987. I got to the front gate on the back of my Virago in 1985. The guard wouldn't let me on. Said the commandant didn't like motorcycles. I had just traveled over a thousand miles down from Canada. This was when my love for the Corps began.
Had a friend in Vista who was a retired gunny, he got me on base. Two months later I went through the Anglico HellWeek for their pre - jump school. Passed the PFT (maxed it in fact) to get in the school. Didn't finish as I was a Med battalion corpsman, andthere was no funding to get us into jump school.
But the marines who went through the HellWeek said it was no harder than your bootcamp. Maybe as hard. I went through this week to prove that I am competent enough to be a devil doc.
AND I am damned proud I made it. OOOOooorah!

In my day it was 16 weeks. Then another 4 weeks for FMF training.
FMF training is now longer I have read. And Corps school "may" be shorter.
But I am not 100% sure of the current length.

Great to see all the Docs and all of the responses
To whoever fixed my half drunk and jacked up
spelling of Corpsman. Thank you very much.
There was no disrespect intended.
I just didn't know how to fix it.

Smitty, there's a 5 minute rule on editing your post. Anything after that, you can't edit.
