How many weeks does basic last these days? Once he gets his time in, he'll do fine and learn a little street savvy along the way.

I never made it to the fleet and wore fatigues most of my enlistment, so much for seeing the world.

Basic is 8 weeks; after that he'll be in Pensecola for 5-6 weeks for his "A" school.
