I didn't know what to call this topic. I am an early '70's grad who has a nephew entering WP this summer. I'd like to know what Beast Barracks and the rest of Plebe year consists of these days. I'm wondering about the following:
-Do "new cadets" still have to brace and recite 4th class knowledge?
-Do they get to eat much during beast?
-I assume they stay at WP until Christmas, then leave again in the summer?
-Are they still screamed at on a regular basis?
-Are they stressed like we used to be stressed?
My infrequent trips back to WP over the years have revealed far more smiling faces than I ever remembered as a cadet. Plebes actually seem to be enjoying themselves, but maybe my memory has fadded!
Any help would be appreciated.
