          The armor school at Knox is being moved to Ft. Benning, which will host the Manuever School of Excellence.

          This is not for awhile.
          I was told they were doing that, so Infantrymen etc. would be able to have a better "more rounded" training experience in "working with" Armored assets, and vice-versa.

          Don't know the truth to this, due to the information coming from a PFC three months out of OSUT (Ft. Knox-19D)

          But the reasoning behind it, as he explained to me, was so Infantry OSUT can incorporate training/experience working side by side with their Armor brethren.

          But that's just how it was explained to me in a nutshell.

          Anyone know any set deadlines when Knox will no longer be the School of Armor location?

            By federal law the move must occur by September 15, 2011. But laws can easily be amended and changed if need be.

                    Brown Recluse

                    I got bit by one of those. I was on antibiotics for a year because of it. I had a hole on my arm about the size of a pencil eraser. I could squeeze pus non stop all day long out of the hole.

                          What's your MOS?

                          Sounds like we'll probably run smack into each other at the airport.

                            Me and a buddy from work are going 19D. I'm almost positive he has an estimated start date the same as ours.

                                I served as a BCT Company Commander at Ft Knox for nearly 2 years...

                                A/2-46 IN (Nov00-Jun01)
                                -Trained 2 cycles of BCT
                                E/2-46 IN (Jun01-Mar02)
                                -Trained 1 cycle of BCT and 1 cycle of 19K BCT/AIT (Knox was overstrength 19Ks and had shut down an OSUT Company, so we created an ad hoc training itinerary to make sure these soldiers didn't have to spend 4 months in receptin)
                                C/46 AG (Mar02-Aug02)
                                -Conducted retraining for soldiers who failed BCT/OSUT (basically last chance before they were chaptered out and sent home)

                                Would be happy to give any advice, although it may be dated. I will verify what has already been said - Ft Knox does get quite cold in the winter, there are plenty of critters to keep you company in the woods, and the hills (most famously Agony, Misery and Heartbreak) go straightup or straightdown (those rolling green hills of Kentucky that you may have heard about do not exist at Knox).
