I'm leaving for basic training in October. So, I have a few questions about Fort Sill!
Okay, also, my MOS is 68P, so I'm going to Fort Sam Houston for AIt.
Thanks so much! Any advice will be taken to heart. I know it's not going to be easy, but I wouldn't have joined if it was easy. I just want to be prepared.
Also! On my orders, there's two weeks in between Basic and AIT, it'll be Christmas time, so is that two weeks for me to go home for the holidays?
In october, sill is cold as ****.
advice: dont be so scared/nervous...
nothing really, basic training is designed to transfer you from civilian to soldier...so you dont have to try and do your drill sgt's job. but i guess, if you want run often, sit up,push ups.
you only get smallpox vacc when you deploy
dont know about your job...not my mos
No, no, no. No. You WILL go from BCT to your AIT location. No leave time or anything like that. Everyones oreders are a little off date, so the only date you really need to know is your ship date. The other dates will adjust based on when you actually arrive at your BCT location. Holoday Block Leave is one week before and one week after Christmas.
Okay, well it actually does depend. We did havesoldiers coming from home after their BCT but the majority of the soldiers showed up a week prior to HBL and left with us. So, you may or may not, but what I said about the dates still stand. Those dates are meant to adjust because your ship date is for reception but you never know when you will actually arrive and start your BCT.
