  • One drill before basic

    I have one drill before shipping out to BCT. I'm a little worried that most others will be more prepared than me. Is there anything I should make sure I get out of it before shipping out?

    They likely won't be. Most of them will be active duty trainees who haven't even been issued a set of uniforms and have not attended any RSP drills. I shipped two weeks after I signed so I had absolutely no idea what was waiting for me, and I had no problem as a pudgy, geeky 18-year-old. For now, just relax and keep doing PT. You'll be fine.

      It's really about keeping a good positive attitude....you'll do great. Memorize the soldiers creed and the general orders, also the rank structure. Having the right mindset is most important, a good attitude will take you far.

      You are going to have so much fun.

            You've got to call them Sir at least once!!!! Probably when you first see them would be the best time!!!!

                  OP, if you'd like to see what is covered in all phases of RSP, check out the RSP section on the National Guard website!

                    You'll be so surprised at what you can do mentally and physically with one three day drill. There are still things in me that I learned in my first drill. One drill will set you miles ahead when you ship. Have fun!
