  • Prior service to Infantry after a long time out.

    Wasn't sure WHERE to put this post?

    I am 38, went to basic Summer 1993 at Ft. Leonard Wood. Served my entire enlistment in the 82nd. Airborne as an 88M Then left the Army in 1999.

    My wife who is former Air Force and I are looking to join the Guard. She'll have to go through basic, I won't.

    BUT....I want to go 11B infantry. Since I haven't gone through basic in literally 20 years and 1999 was still a long time ago, and since Ft. Benning does OSUT, would it be beneficial? There is a lot I probably forgot. Unless my training kicks in?

    Not sure what infantry training is really like? If it's just the basics? Luckily I'm still in shape after all these years.

    It would be weird though. I'm sure most of the Drill Sergeants were just kids when I was in basic back then. Hell, I graduated Airborne school April of 1994.
