I'm leaving for Airborne school in a few weeks, and I'm psyching myself out I think. I'm excited but also a little nervous. I'm going into it with the memtality that it's an awesome opportunity and it's going to be a lot of fun. That being said is it as bad as everyone says it is?

Do people say it's bad? I thought the hardest part was running so slow my shins hurt.

I thought hardest part was waiting in line for people to get their pull ups done to get in the mess hall... or maybe the gig pit.

I didn't think Airborne School was hard. Just make sure you can do some good PT -- long, slow runs and all the standard PT exercises. Other than that, the days of training are pretty long from what I recall. Pay attention to detail and do what you're told by the instructors. Focus on what you need to accomplish and you'll be fine. Stay away from your counterparts who may be lazy and sarcastic...

No. It's mentally very easy; it can be physically challenging though. Air Assault School is the opposite (mentally tough, but physically not all that challenging). You'll do fine.
