    You will spend 4-5 days of in processing at reception. This is normal. You will be standing in lines with as many as 500 soldiers who are getting ready to goto the same Training Battalion as you are. Not mention probably another 1000 soldiers who will either be before you or after you in terms of BCT start dates. Just show up and do as you're told, you'll be successful.

      If you're only a few hours from Georgia I would try asking the Drill Sergeants if you can go home on the weekends. Can't hurt, right?
