This may not be quite what you're looking for (then again, it 
might)...but there is a very good documentary called _Anybody's Son Will 
Do_.  The name of the folks who produced it has slipped my mind; i 
believe it dates back to the late 80's though.  It is exactly what you 
ask about---a hard look at bootcamp with the U.S. Marine Corps.  It may 
be worth a look.

All the best,
