How hard is TBS in the Marines?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
TBS isn't hard in the same way that OCS or Bootcamp are hard. You go to The Basic School after you have been commissioned, prior to attending any other MOS training. It is part evaluation, part training, and a good chance for new 2nd Lt's to cut thier teeth and learn about the Marine Corps before they go out into the operating forces and lead Marines. The focus at TBS is on basic infantry skills, every Officer is a basic infantry officer just like every Marine is a rifleman.Source(s): Marine Corps Officer
