  • 19D Not going to Benning?

    Greetings, I posted this question in another forum and I figured I would give it a shot here. Is there any instance where a 19D would not be sent to Benning for basic?

    I signed as 19D here and I am being sent to Jackson.

    Thank you

    Technically, your MOS isn't important for your BCT location. The Army often tries to keep the BCT/AIT locations as near as possible, but you can realistically attend BCT at Ft. Jackson and AIT at Ft. Benning.

    Does this answer your question?

      It's going to be a culture shock!

        Yessir, It answers my question. I was just concerned reading all the OSUT information. Thank you!

            Will do! In regards to the culture shock comment, I am assuming it is because Ft. Jackson is referred to as 'Relaxin Jackson'?

              I thought 19D OSUT was at Ft knox? I know there were tons of em there when I went to basic.

                Yes, each training location has their own reputation. Fort Jackson just happens to be considered "easy" comparatively. Hence, why it would be such a culture shock switching to Fort Benning.

                  From my research, 11 series and 19D have moved to benning.

                  One of my friends just retired, he said that jackson is no longer called 'relaxin jackson' lol

                  He said that one of the DI's told them "I guess you all have heard this place is called relaxin jackson...WELL THAT ALL CHANGES RIGHT NOW" lol

                    It can't be OSUT at Jackson. Cav / Armor is all at Harmony Church on Ft. Benning now. Either way, whatever happens at Relaxin' Jackson. Be prepared for it to get C-R-A-Z-Y by 100 times at Harmony.

                      That is why I was confused because I thought OSUT meant I did basic and AIT at one training location (benning)

                      I have my job (19D) and I have basic at Jackson, so I was a little concerned. Thanks for the reply!

                        I was pretty sure it was obvious, but to clarify, Ft. Jackson was used as an EXAMPLE of how different training locations can be different from each other, not that 19D train there.
