New Army National Guard Recruits Experience A “Shark Attack” In Preparation For Basic TrainingU.S. Army BCT Shark Attack
One of the most controversial training exercises new recruits experience in U.S. Army Basic Combat Training (BCT) is called the “Shark Attack.” Incoming recruits arrive in fear because of the rumors they’ve heard about the exercise, or because of all of the emotional and physical abuse they have seen about it in the movies.
Of course, there is no hazing or physical abuse in any phase of the U.S. Army BCT, but the myths about it keeps recruits nervous. In this video, you will see new U.S. Army National Guard recruits experience the famous “Shark Attack” exercise enforced by drill sergeants. The exercise takes place during a drill weekend prior to the recruits shipping off to basic training as a means to prepare them for what’s to come.
These men and women in the video are assigned to the Recruitment Sustainment Program in Smyrna, Tennessee.
