184 – My Military Story – Swim Qual

I continue my military story with #184 which is about swim qualification in the Marine Corps. Knowing how to swim is kind of important for any Marine. Also, one can’t graduate boot without passing a basic water qualification. I am not the best swimmer and treading water for four minutes seemed like an eternity. I just had to make slow, easy movements and keep breathing. Sounds simple enough, but panic is a laughing bastard when I let it take over my mind. If you are planning on joining the Marine Corps take some swimming lessons. It is only a week out of boot camp, but like range an important part of being a Green Amphibious Monster.
