  • 1 drill

    only get to go to 1 RSP drill (tomorrow) before I ship on 04/05/11. I was wandering if RSP drills help prepare you and will I be at a disadvantage from only getting 1 drill?

    That 1 drill will be very helpful. And no you wont be at a disadvantage. Alot of the guys in basic are active duty who had no RSP to drill with and will be coming in totally blind. You will be fine. Good Luck

      Since its your only drill before leaving, you probably wont learn much about the Army, youll just spend your time doing paperwork and waiting around



      On second thought, yeah you'll learn a lot about the Army.

          I have my first drill tomorrow. Someone please help me with my checklist.
          I'm bringing my military CAC card, driver's license, SS card, running pants, basketball shorts, razor, shaving cream, soap, sleeping bag, deodorant, copy of high school diploma, running shoes, jacket, civilian jeans and shirt, tooth paste/brush. I don't have a watch, is that a requirement? Anymore info/advice/tips will be greatly appreciated.

            You need Chem Light Batteries. If you can't find them just tell your NCO immediatly when you get to drill that you tried to find them but couldn't. They are scarce and alot of newbies can't locate them, but they are a must for drill.

              Honestly 1 drill probably wont help you that much. I had 4 drills before shipping and it still didnt help as much as I thought it would but it might depend on your rsp too. Just talk to the cadre and even better, if there are people who just recently got back because they will be able to help you even more as far as telling you what to expect.

              Good luck

                      Keep in mind that just because you ship the same day doesn't mean you will be in the same company, reception can be **** for some people and kind to others. You can be there a few days, or a few weeks. But its better to share info with each other, and that way if you see each other, even in passing, you can motivate each other.
