  • First RSP weekend

    Hello everyone I had my first RSD drill this past weekend and figured I would post my experience for new enlistees to see.

    I met my recruiter at 0550 on Saturday morning and drove up to Indianapolis. The day started off with about an hour in formation, got placed into our platoons, next we did height/weight test and began stretching and warming up for the APFT (we did the 2-2-2 not the 1-1-1). After the run we all went to the latrine to shower/clean up before class started. The rest of the first day was mainly death by powerpoint except for lunch chow, paperwork, one hour of D&C, and then ended it with the final formation. To my suprise we didn't stay over, we went back home for the night. I met the recruiter at the same time Sunday morning and started the trip back to the armory. The last day of drill started off with a 2 mile company run at an 18min 2 mile pace, did some indian runs and then some pushups. A couple of us ran about a half mile more to the latrine to clean up. We had a couple hours of class, those of us who did not have an AKO account got that taken care of. There was a large group of people that had just got back for IET that we had Q&A with, next was chow, another hour of D&C, final formation and that was it. We left at about 1300 hours. Overall it was a great experience, I'm extremely motivated and ready to ship out. It took a lot of the nervousness I had about OSUT away. Those of you going to Red Phase make sure that your hair is within AR 670-1 and you are clean shaven, a couple people got smoked for that. I'm excited for my next and final drill and wish that drill was longer than two days.

                  If you don't have thick skin and a sense of humor you don't make it in the military.

                        This was my first RSP weekend and it was everything I expected for the most part. The only advice I have is to keep running when you are doing your 1-1-1 or 2-2-2. I stopped twice and it cost me 12 seconds over deadline.

                          It's quality, not quantity. You know exactly what I am talking about. Stop being such a nuisance.
