        I'll be getting Christmas Exodus during AIT at Ft. Lee. What is the timeframe like? Weekend before Christmas and after New Years? How outrageous were your tickets for the flight home and back? Did you do any work at your unit during the exodus? Thanks for the info and congrats. I read your blog. My intentions were to go 09S too but issues arose that delayed the option. If it happens later down the road it was meant to be. Looking forward to reading more about your experiences.

          For HBL, we got to come home for two weeks. It was from December 19th to Jan 3. My tickets werent too bad because I was flying from Missouri to Alabama. I think it was like $320 round trip. But I heard of people paying close to $700. Over HBL, they offer Guardsmen something called Hometown Recruiting. Its where you go help out your recruiter and they count it as working instead of using leave. If you dont do it, you will owe the Army leave days. I just went to the recruiter's office and he signed my paper after shooting the breeze for about an hour. Then we did something that weekend for the 1SG's retirement ceremony. Thanks for the congrats. Its tough, but doable. You have to have a strong mind. Thats the first thing the DS' will break. Hope this helps.

            Did you have any PS NCOs in your unit? Or know who did? BCT isn't a fun proposition when you're 41, so I'm hoping SGT stripes help.

              I know this is way old, but we didnt have any in our company. However, there was someone in a different company. I think he was an E7 in the Navy, so he was wearing E5.
