I can't believe you had such a hard time, sure it was a little stressful at times but overall I found basic training to be pretty easy both mentally and physically.

Actually never mind, I could easily see someone like you describing it as hell on earth and having a billion complaints and whinings.

They are no longer communist. It might have cold weather but Iím pretty sure Russiaís cleptocracy days are in the past.
Ok, I'm not about to talk you out of your fantasy world. Go ahead and do it if you think it's so wonderful. Maybe it will be, but I seriously doubt it.
