I went through boot camp at Great Lakes in the fall of 1942. As I remember it, we were hurried through and on to other assignments in just eight weeks instead of the usual 16. My clearest memory is of complaining about being given two successive midnight-to-4 a.m. barracks watches, and then being given another as punishment for complaining. A lesson learned: keep a low profile.
