Americans, how do/did they teach/taught you about military at school?

So I’ve been given a short break after my “military service”. Now I have access to the Net again!

My “military service” should be called “military training” to be exact. In my country every university student has to attend one. If anyone refuses to attend he/she will not be qualified to graduate from university. We are sent to a military camp and there we are taught politic and some basic skills of a soldier. At the end of the course there will be exams. I do enjoy the course in some way because my class gets to live in a dormitory and I can spend more time with my friends. My only complaints are that the political lessons are so boring and the living condition is not very good (dirty toilets, water shortage…)

I heard that American students have some course similar to this. So I’m curious of what they teach students about military in America.
