Thanks for the video. At OCS, did they allow the prior enlisted candidates reuse some of their old uniform items such as TYPE III's, coveralls, undershirts, boots, etc or did everyone have to repurchase all uniform items? Also, are the coyote tan boots authorized or is everyone in the black steel-toe?


What are the benefits of getting an excellent or a really high score on PRTs? I can only achieve a Good level of PRTs right now.

Zenas Wang

Any tips for Navy OCS for current enlisted sailors? How long should I serve as an enlisted sailor before I submit a package? Also, should I improve my college GPA before applying? Thank you!

Jencmakeup xoxo

Did you guys have to run the 3 miles ? I wasn’t sure if that was still apart of the requirements since it wasn’t mentioned.

Kev Ha

Hello, I’m getting my letter of recommendations done now, who would you say the letter should be written to?

“To: Officer Candidate School Newport Selection board”? Please help ??


Did you enjoy your trips to the beach? Or did Covid screw that up?

Zachary Flohr

Thank you for this informative video! I leave for OCS in a few months, and I have a quick question: are the 1.5-mile runs of the four PRTs done with the standard issue boots?

Fathia Adewusi

What is the height requirement ??

Gabriel Grady

What about the swimming portion of OCS?

jay love19

Hi, I’m considering becoming an officer but I’ve been told I won’t be getting very much hands on experience on the job and it’s more managing people. Is that true?

Ngl I clicked because of da thumbnail tbh I mean I’m a simple man, I see a beautiful woman I click ??‍♂️

"TRASH?" Not hardly!

Brave Hearty

Huge thing to anyone going. Treat the people around you like you would your family. As Chief said “pay it forward.” If you go out of your way to help your classmates in a struggle, whether that be helping them understand a concept from class, folding clothes for RLP, or just helping them when they drop their entire tray in chow, it will come back around hopefully when you are in a struggle. Don’t be the guy who cares only for himself and treats classmates and underclassmen like crap. I promise, if you’re that guy, it will come back around, and it may snowball into you going home (it’s lord of the flies).

I also recommend, when the time comes, to offer assistance to a lower class the night before an evolution, GO! You’ll have people in your corner if you get rolled, instead of rolling and being the outsider. People get tribal, so build many bridges... but don’t frat with other classes, that’ll be a bad navy day.

Carry on...


My God, why would you have to remember so many birthdays?

And right now the United States is engaged with the Russian Federation in the hypersonic arms race, you better have good memory with all those missiles and learning the classification of NATO and Russia.

Есть много российских ракет "Вымпел 37")))

American youth should seize that opportunity, sadly I am very old in my late 20s .


I was wondering about the caffeine access lol

WHV Brian

Awesome video! Just found out in going to OCS next September so I wanted to start training now so I'm not behind at all when I get there. Definitely gonna watch the rest of this series. But when you said memorize appendixes b-d, did you really mean word for word everything in them?

Tierra Sales

When did you go through OCS? Also thank you for your video ☺️


So when did you take your oath, and where did you get stationed? Glad to see you back on YouTube!


Can you get issued your military ID as soon as you get picked up by the boards, or does that happen when you actually get to Newport?

Michelle Meyer

Did you have to do any weapons training at OCS? If so, what were they?


Good for you getting into and graduating from Yale. Quite an accomplishment. What was academic part of OCS like? Did they haze you for being Ivy League?

Thomas Schakow

Follow up, are yu on a sub? Carrier? Flying in Pensacola?


Thank you for this! I'm preparing for OCS soon and I appreciate your series

Shadow Elite 117

Is the checklist the same for OCS reserves?

Madison Sundling

Hi! Im leaving this weekend for OCS- can you tell me if travel sized containers are okay to bring for shampoo/facewash etc? DEP guide says bring full sized, but ive also seen to make sure everything fits in a toiletry bag, and those are generally small...advice?

Mater bater

Military is not a day camp. Just go and see if you make the cut or not. There is nothing you can do and say to people to make them prepared. You got the balls to go then do it. You don’t make it then you don’t. That’s how it works.

Malik Brown

I have Questions for you. How can I contact you

Kev Ha

Do you have an email that subscribers can reach out to for question


Do you have rough estimate for the timeline to actually get your orders to OCS? I will be graduating college in May, and I was hoping for an estimate on how long I should expect to wait. Of course I really want to graduate and head to OCS right away, but I have to be realistic as well lol


Do you need to be really smart?

TJ schakow

Great video, where are you at now? MOS


IF ANYONE CAN HELP I'D GREATLY APPRECIATE IT.. my dad is a retired O-5 and i'm interested in going to ocs. the only thing holding me back is that i don't consider myself to be an outspoken person (introvert). Is being an officer still something I should consider?


The appendix B and general OCS website links don’t work for me? Do they only work in certain browsers and is there any where else I can find this information?


During inspections and things like that, will they ask you to recite the Star Spangled Banner? I know all knowledge from Bravo is fair game, but do they actually do it?

Nidz C.

Thank you so much for this video, super helpful!


Great video!

Angie M

What was your college GPA? Mine is kinda low so Im wondering if I can get in even with a super low GPA.

Anthony Abroad

Thanks for all of the information! I'm leaving for OCS at the end of October (unless anything changes with Covid), so videos like this are great for helping me to prepare. I'm looking forward to the future videos!

Derionna Browder

Omg I wanna join so bad but the weight limit has been one of my biggest struggles I was even thinking of giving up on going to the navy until I saw this thanks for the information #newsubbie

Jaylia Day

Thankkk you for this video! I’ve been scared to even meet with a recruiter to ask questions about the navy because I felt like they would tell me to get to the correct weight for my height first then come back. But knowing you can be a little boarder line is helpful.

C.B. Galvez

I am currently 175 and my height is 5’3. I’m scared because I’m worried I might not lose the weight by the time I go to enlist. I’m still a senior so I have time... do you have any tips?

Alexis Bettis-Jackson

Also, Thank you very much for this video , the breakdown was amazing !

Darrien Mason



“Bitch this my YouTube channel” ???

Lincoln Wikipedia

Am I think 5'8 and weight 223 lbs

Annie the conservative

I love your personality! ??

Fatmata Mansaray

As a black girl what hairstyle do u recommend for bootcamp??

Alauna White

Watching this video makes me feel better about myself. I want to join the military and was so worried about my weight. I’m 5’2 and am about 180-188lb and my weight fluctuates all the time. So watching this really did take the stress off

Vince Oaks

Yo you are absolutely hilarious ?

Alyssa Gilliam

This was soo helpful! I was just wondering, you mentioned bicycling instead of the run. Do we get to 'request' that or do they just assign it? Sorry if you said it in the vid haha


so I’m 10 pounds over the max for my height, but if I pass the tape test I can get in??


Siiiisss YES..... i have to lose 20 lbs to join and Tryna lose body fattttt

Alexis Bettis-Jackson

Did you join with your hand tattoo?

Trellis Ransdell

What about the pfa?I lost hella weight to go to the navy in August but I can’t do a push up ,sit-up or run a 1.5 Any tips on how I can do that fast enough to ship at the end of August

Alexis Bettis-Jackson

One more question lol, my BMI is 36 right now , it needs to be 33 to join the navy , but even at 33 BMI, I’d still be 30 pounds Overweight (190)..., could I still join ? I am 5’5


"Tell them motherfuckers to tape you!"

Jacy Maury

“ i was a little buff” took me tf out ???

Anquane Monique

im 5'8 and 130 am i too little

quita mason

I’m wanting to enlist but I need to lose 8” to meet the tape off any suggestions?

Life as Esmie

I want to join but I’m about 10 pounds over my weight requirement. I’ve struggled to loose them but I don’t know what to do.

Golden Girl

So you were able to bike in bootcamp?

Monique C.

What if you’re underweight ?

Cocoa & Honey

"tell the mf'ers to tape you" ok sayless im otw downtown


I'm so nervous about wanting to join bc I have big boobs and I wear glasses and I want to join the Air Force reserves and I know they disqualify you for anything.


Girl Idk how to thank you!!! I am going to MEPS soon to do my physical and swear into the army after 6 months of waiting for MEPS to clear me. And I leave in a few days but I have hit a plateau with my weight and I can't meet max for the army no matter how hard I tried. I needed to lose form .5lb to 3lbs. Every time I did the tape test on my own I fail it every time because Idk how to tape myself like the idiot I was. The hip bone trick actually helped tons and it didn't help I was typing in measurements in wrong. I am still worried about meeting weight but now I am not as terrified as anymore and my recruiter kicking me out lol. Wish me luck =)!!!

Duncan Woodard

The Army does tape you


not gonna lie i was comparing my height & weight to yours to see if id might make it .. u seemed kinda the same size as me im alil chunkier .. but girlll that snatched waist .. my belly could never ?? i dont think ima get in lbs

Keyara Gaillard

So if I’m not the height/weight requirements at MEPS, they will tape my waist and that’s all? And then if my waist exceeds it then what next? And what is the max number ?

Love you all ??

Brandon G

New intro who dis..... ?

Smh @ all the bot comments though.... ??‍♂️


Wow. You get to pick an alternative cardio event for the Navy PT test? And you get to wear headphones too if you want to? Awww man! I can definitely tell you for a fact that you DON'T get those options in the Army. In the Air Force, I think you can wear headphones during the run....but you can't pick an alternative to the run. Wow, sis. And I originally wanted to join the Navy....but at the time I had too many dependents & they denied my waiver so....ARMY

Joshua cruz alberto



I graduated boot camp back at the end of September and we were the test group for the planks! I was obviously boot camp fit so I was very easily able to pass my PRT. I didn't know we were able to have all these alternate things!! That's great information to know! Thanks for the video!

Nehemiah Reece

Very nice ?? ??♥️❤️

Navy Transition Coach

Yes, the first time I got on the bike, it was a nightmare. I had no clue what I was doing. Now it's my go to for cardio. My body has changed so much over the course of my career (11 yrs) plus getting older in age. Adulthood is sneaky.

Rogelio Jaylon

Nice 36:14 ????


That 1st minute spoke VOLUMES. The elliptical is discontinued, but you can use the row machine replaced it as a new alternate cardio. I wonder how those planks are going to feel next cycle.?



Cardesha Lewis

I wish we could bike it in the Air Force, you’re either running or you can choose to fast walk it, lol

Cindy Anderson

Hi Zenez, truly enjoy your vlog, it brings so much memories. (We had to do chin up to). I truly believe in the Navy,, it can be a great career choice. Can we send gifts for the baby? Maybe you can do a registry or something like that? Anyway, thanks so much for your info vlog,. Stay safe & MERRY CHRISTMAS & Happy New Year Zenez??
