I work with a lot of deppers who go to boot camp. Not once have I heard they they wished they had their wisdom teeth taken out before boot camp. In fact, they all are so happy they they got them taken out while at boot camp since it breaks up the training, and they get a couple days off. Wisdom teeth are usually taken out ~2-5 day of training.
My son needs all 4 pulled out.....I hope it doesn't affect his graduation time!
It won't. He will be thankful to do it at bootcamp.
Nick's Mom - In boot camp the recruit is totally stressed about everything. To get a 2 day break on your 2-5 day is a welcome joy. While all the others that already had their wisdom teeth taken out are cleaning the head, marching, PTing you are laying in your nice rack (bed) getting a well needed rest and getting your batteries recharged. Why subject yourself to getting yelled at for not marching correctly, or not having the head clean well enough, when you could be just sleeping the day away?
Why would your son want to bust his butt even harder, while others are sleeping in? It's not like you're going to learn something on those days. Too many recruits would have to make it up. So it's just a "make work" day. To teach your son what a "make work" day is, have him go into your front yard and tell him to dig a hole 2 feet wide, by 2 feet deep. After he's done, tell him to fill it back up. When he ask why? Just say, it's a "make work" day, and just wanted you to do something.
Is he part of any deppers forums? (ie NavyDEP.com)?
