  • Airborne awarded at other locations?

    My brother is currently at FT.Benning, he is in the running for a competitive airborne slot. Are airborne slots offered at other basic training locations since they don't teach airborne everywhere?

    Once I complete BCT at Ft. Jackson and AIT at Ft. Huachuca I will be heading to Ft. Benning for airborne school.

      Do you have it written into your contract?

            It's up to the state because they're the ones who have to pay for it. It has nothing to do with where you attend BCT/AIT or OSUT.

            On another note, there aren't too many things stupider than sending an NG soldier to Airborne School when the soldier's state has no airborne units.

              Thank you sir, does your MOS have anything to do with it?

                We had competative slots for Airborne and Air Assault in AIT. There were 3 (i think) of each and were open to anyone who scored high enough on their APFT and their classroom scores. A NG soldier could compete if their state first approved the school for the soldier. I'm pretty sure all 6 slots were filled by active duty and Reserve soldiers.

                  I think my state would approve if I had the chance, I'd hope they do. But I'm a pretty competitive person and very motivated to be the best, I'm working on my pt score to get into the extended scale. I have some very high standards that I hope some day will be accomplished.
