Watch more Boot Camp: Learn about Basic Training videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/498696-How-to-Pack-for-Basic-Training-Boot-Camp "A lot of recruits ask me what to pack for basic training, so let's make that packing checklist right now. First, you're going to want a plane and a bus ticket. You're going to want several copies of your orders. You're also going to want form 1199, which is your direct deposit form. You're also going to want meal tickets and MEPS, which is your military entrance processing station; all those documents. You're going to want a copy of your birth certificate - not the original. You're also going to want 6 pair of underwear, white only, no crazy colors. You're going to want comfortable running shoes. Two locks, make sure they're combination - no padlocks, you're not going to want to carry keys around with you. Eyeglass band, but only if you wear eyeglasses of course. You're also going to want to pack 6 pair of calf-length white socks. A black marker, Sharpie medium point works best. Toiletries and a small black bag to hold all your toiletries in. Toothbrush with a case. Shaving cream. Disposable razors - not your electric razors, you can't use electric razors at basic training. Two washcloths and a towel. Don't forget that deodorant, please don't forget that deodorant. Shower shoes, all black again, no colors and no logos on those shower shoes. Shampoo and conditioner - one bottle to save space. Soap with case, please don't forget that soap. For women, you're going to want your undergarments; cotton panties and bras. And don't forget, one full slip in case you're ever in a military suit, which you will be. Flesh-tone nylon pantyhose. And quarter inch or less in diameter earrings - they can be gold, silver, pearl, or spherical diamond; which can also be worn with what they call your Class A military suit. Let's go over some miscellaneous items as well. You're going to want a long-distance calling card to call home, because you won't have access to a cell phone most likely. Small box of laundry detergent in a zip lock bag. Stamps, which will be your best friend at basic training, they're like currency. Insect repellent. Cough drops. Small notebook to take notes of course - when your drill sergeant yells at you, you want to write that down so you don't make the same mistake again. And that's pretty much your entire list. I wouldn't recommend bringing anything else because it's probably going to get confiscated for contraband.

Thats the reason why I joined Marines and not Army . . . . . But also, I betrayed my best friend and massacred his whole family so don't listen to me.
Hello World (1 month ago)
-Travel size conditioner and shampoo -only the clothes that you are wearing -personal documents -Maybe a little bit of cash -Phone and phone charger -you might want a small and cheap watch -deodorant Pretty much all the other stuff is bs because you are only wearing your clothes to reception.

twoeightythreez (7 months ago)
Dont bring anything that wont fit in a folder, and your wallet. Wear as few clothes as you can get away with, depending on weather. I recommend wearing sweat pants and sweat shirt with a t shirt underneath. You will be buying everything you need at the NEX/PX and any clothes you came in wearing will be placed in a vacuum sealed bag.

From what I have heard, you don't need any of this anymore, especially the birth cert, shoes, and underwear. They give you everything and they make you buy the shoes with your own money for PT.

Chris Stroh (2 years ago)
Are you kidding me ! Your to supply soldiers with most of this equipment . Only thing I would bring is laxatives those Army meals can send ur body through a huge change . Pair of great running shoes . Nothing expensive , but the Army Px (Post exchange ) shoes are average at best. Black, blue or gray best. white shoes will get destroyed . Feet are going to get a lot of miles on them . Bobby pins for women that don't want to cut there hair . Sure there are better choices for keeping hair above shoulders . Shower shoes yes grab 2 or 3 pairs . Men grab women's secret roll on. I don't care if all the dumbies in boot camp tell you that's for women . Secret really works . Men's speed stick sucks. You need 3 bars to equal one secret deodorant. I'm ex US Army 13 foxtrot forward observer . All we do is run and sit ups and push ups . Socks you can't bring those Army issues you there socks . anything white tube socks maybe 6 pairs. Your there product and they will make you wear there brand of clothing , because they have a order they have to fill with there suppliers of clothing . Every piece of clothing has meet military specs. Don't think ur cute by buying clothing that exceeds the standard . They want every soldier on even playing field so they can measure physical fitness on same standards . After boot camp and A school . Buy real equipment .

Richtellj (3 years ago)
You don't need any of this, you get everything you need in reception when you get there. When I left for basic in 2012, I brought stuff with me and it all got stuffed in a bag and locked up in a closet along with everyone else's stuff. I got it all back when I finished basic.
BloodCraze (3 years ago)
What if I don't have any money? Do I have to pay for the plane and bus ticket out of my own pocket?? That's pretty messed up.

Is this for BCT or is it for Reception?
Richtellj (3 years ago)
Neither, when I joined the army I brought stuff with me and it all got locked up in a closet and I didn't see any of it until I left basic. You'll get pretty much everything listed in the video during reception.
Tyler Doran (3 years ago)
What's your MOS
Jessie S (3 years ago)
Im female and plan on joining the marines. My ears are stretched, not very big but i doubt id be able to wear earings again. Also, can you wear contacts in basic training.
sb destiny (3 years ago)
You can always get surgery . It's any easy fix.
DEATHDEALER (3 years ago)
@Jessie S no you cant wear contacts you will be issued glasses and eye pro inserts, but that's only in boot camp once your done you can wear them. As for your ears i would look up the regs just to be safe, i did see an nco who looked like he stretched his ears, they did not look too big tho.

Boot camp is a way to become a US citizen.. im late but.
Isaac Michael (3 years ago)
+One Pepsi Each branch is different for what to bring. Navy and Marines will make you ship everything back home, so only go with the clothes on your back. This video applies primarily to Army and National Guard, though most of this is optional (shower shoes, towels, etc.)

does this apply to navy as well?
Edgardo Rivera (4 years ago)
Not just army, my brother went to marine BCT and he had his cellphone. My brother told me that it depends on how your unit performs, if up to standards, you'll be awarded with cell time. I think it depends on where you go. I'm headed to jackson in a week and I'm hoping they will allow us to keep our phones.
MidNight DarkChocolate (4 years ago)
(sorry for the late response )Well I find your local requiter, talk to your carer counselor if you don't know there should be one assign to your school. and sit there and work it out with him he should be able to help you the most in fact you cant enlist with him or another requiter. be reminder that not every job is available at the time that you want it and you will have to go for additionally C school after A school. P.S keep in great shape fpr the same and make sure you meat all the requirements I.E height weight, etc. and if you don't start working on it. and hope you like the cold because you will most likely ship out in winter 
TheUnshippedcorpse (4 years ago)
@Emmanuel Nwancha I'm going to MEPS next week for my medical, then I should be good to sign on for the navy nuclear power program. but i'm expecting to leave sometime probably like late June early July but I wot know for sure until I actually sign up. (don't finish High school till June
MidNight DarkChocolate (4 years ago)
Pretty much ever branch goes through the same basic so yes. There is a very good detail video by the Navy on youtube called A school. Which is one of the basic you go through and then there is C school. When do you plan of going?
Neil Corbin (4 years ago)
So is that a no on a watch?
wolfVital (2 years ago)
regs on watches aren't strict. All it has to be is a tactical looking watch. black/army green, etc
Neil Corbin (3 years ago)
And as long as it's in regs you can wear it in basic they won't take it from you or anything.
Neil Corbin (3 years ago)
I highly recommend it. So much. There's all this talk of people will steal your watch but you have to be really careless for that to happen. Plus most of those people will become your brothers. I remember my first night of EC duty was so stressful because I didn't have a watch. Get a cheap digital watch with a back light that can display military time. If you don't bring one, don't sweat just buy one asap from the BX.

Just kind of an FYI if you're planning on joining the Navy, the Navy will provide everything down to the undergarments! Bring as little as you can because everything except for important documents, files and photos, will be sent back home!!

Brandon Rios (4 years ago)
this is b.s , do not take anything to boot camp....all you need is your personal documents(birth certificate,etc.) unless you want to get your bag and stuff dumped all over.
Fhorn5114 (4 years ago)
Yeah, don't buy any of that. All you'll need is one or two days worth of clothes (for your hotel stays before your travels to basic training) and your toiletries. You'll probably have to carry around whatever you pack, so pack lightly. You WILL need all of the above things at basic, but they'll send you to a PX with a pre-paid government credit card with about $300 to buy all of that stuff. They send you all to the same place so you all have the same shit. Don't arrive at basic with anything you don't need. You'll end up regretting it.
first name (1 year ago)
Fhorn5114 Well surly you can't buy a copy of your birth certificate at the PX...
Constance Ochsenbein (4 years ago)
^ I am going with this method if I can just buy it when I get there. Also, I have no desire to have earrings lol
James Schabel (4 years ago)
i have 1 question.can i bring photos of my family?
Fhorn5114 (4 years ago)
I don't know about anyone else, but when I went through basic training, we were allowed to have phones, but they were all locked up in the drill sergeant's office. We got to pull them out twice to call our families.

Damn you guys get phones? Lol Army
x20Dankshots (4 years ago)
Of course
lena13146 (4 years ago)
I think I'm not sure but I think you can, they will give you an ID you must have at all time if you can find a place to put a small picture (one pic) that's the size of a drivers license you should be fine any more questions just ask your drill sergeant or a recruiter
Tommy Wike (4 years ago)
There is a lot less stuff on the list of what to bring to fort Jackson. My sergeant told me the less amount of stuff you have, the better.
Geovany Veleta (4 years ago)
They give you a small box to send things like phones or outside objects to send back home
