Everyday Life and Missions of the Soldier

The life of the soldier is framed by rules of life which are common, whatever your regiment of membership. Having previously been in the military, I share with you an example of a "basic" day that I experienced.

The typical day

A typical day in a regiment is devoted to becoming a better soldier, this requires the exercise of his specialty. You will put these learnings into practice through practice. Sports activities and equipment maintenance are important moments in the daily life of the soldier, the objective being to be operational at all times.

Here is an example of a day that the military can experience:

  • 6:00 a.m.: wake-up call
  • 6:10 a.m.: maintenance of the premises
  • 6:45 a.m.: breakfast
  • 7:45 a.m.: company assembly (orders for the day)
  • 8:00 a.m.: sports session
  • 9:30 a.m.: theoretical lessons on the handling of weapons (assembly, disassembly, safety rules, etc.)
  • 10:15 a.m.: weapons training
  • 12:00 p.m.: meal on site
  • 1:30 p.m.: company gathering (morning update and afternoon program)
  • 1:45 p.m.: equipment maintenance
  • 2:30 p.m.: theoretical topographic lessons (knowing how to read a map, use a compass, orient yourself and move around.)
  • 3:30 p.m.: training with practical application of topographical knowledge
  • 5:30 p.m.: company meeting (update on the afternoon and program for the next day.)


However, this kind of typical day only applies to a majority of Army regiments.

This program is not fixed, on the contrary. I share with you something specific as much as possible to give you an idea of ​​the activities a soldier may face while in the regiment.
