    The crucible is an exercise that lasts for 56 hours. During the crucible you only get 8 hours of sleep total. You also only get 3 MRE meals. You will have to perform many exercises and at the end make a long hike up the Grim Reaper. After the crucible you get a warriors breakfast. It's the best meal you will get at boot camp. My son just finished Boot camp. The crucible is no joke. It's hell, he said
