      No, CBRN specialist. Leonard wood was full so I had to pick Benning. I'll be going to Leonard wood for AIT though. What about you?

        Drink water, that is all you really need to get ready for. they will indoctrinate you into what they want you to be in the first few weeks, and there isnt much you can do to prep for it.

        also, sv9, if you are infantry, drink more water, also, I hope you REALLY have a thing for camping, if not, ftx will kick your tail

          Haha, I am into camping, but probably not to the extent I need to be. I'm actually a 15U - Chinook Mechanic. Benning was the only slot open. I don't know if I'll be mixed in with infantry MOS's or if I'll be in a unit with only non infantry.

              @ Sharkbite-I am a 74D as well, but I ship 20121001 and am going to Fort Leonard Wood for BCT and AIT. I should be there for AIT at the same time.

                you will be in a unit of non infantry. they have an entire battalion down there now that is fully non-11series mos's. its still gonna be real real hot though lol

                    @Jessrae lucky you! I picked the closest date available and got stuck with Benning. I wonder if it's too late to change the date...

                      @sharkbite...hmmm...I dont know-that's a good question. I figure they put me at FLW due to me being a woman (I think only 2 sites take women) and probably also my MOS choice-2 birds with 1 stone maybe Either way we should def be in AIT at the same time!

                        i just got out of bct at benning graduated last week june 26 and it was an awesome experience...your probably going to be in A-1/46 because the rest of the companies just picked up when we were graduating and my DS's told us they pick up again in sept. so if your lucky youll get to be in A-1/46...had the best DS there man...just stay hydrated and youll be good
