Shipping out to Ft. Benning September 8th

What should I expect? Should I do anything else besides running/traning?

Do lots of pushups and pullups and hump around up hills and **** with a heavy pack on. You should expect it to be ****ty and boring but funny in a ****ed up kind of way. If the DS doesn't know your name without looking at your tape then you are doing **** right. I'm guessing you are going INF?

All you need to do is remember why the sky is blue.

Well you spell well for an infantryman.

But seriously, it is 'train'.

I was about to choose MP, but I decided that Infantry was better for me

It is all a game. You go you train you learn you graduate. The first couple of weeks are going to suck worse than the rest. Aside from physical training you should brush up on your rank structure, army values, soldiers creed and general orders. Its the small stuff that will get you in trouble. When you go pack light. You will have a chance to pick everything else up you own later. Try to have a little fun while you are there. It is not all bad. You go and get smoked alot. Pretty soon you notice your body is not as soft as it used to be. You will be making the runs and doing the pushups in no time. One day you struggle to keep up with the drills during your runs. The next you are bored becuase you are in great shape. I enjoyed alot of the courses. The confidence course and the night infiltration course stick out in my mind. Since you are going infantry you will be in what is called hells kitchen. You will walk everywhere. Packs and full battle rattle will be the norm for you. Just listen and do exactly as you are told. Get to know your battle buddy. You guys will be new best friends. When ever you do anything think about the group. You will no long be an individual. If you are screwing around your platoon is screwing around. Like I said in the begining it is all a game. You are there to learn a lesson and move on. Dont be stupid and keep out of the eye of the drills and you will be fine. Good luck.

It's all mental.


Beginning will be alot of group punishment (everyone punished for an individuals mistake) and you will get the feeling that the drill sergeants hate you.

Eventually, they will transform more into the role of mentors after they get that discipline and respect into you.

Remember these words: Never give up. Can't be *****.

I think 26 degrees was the coldest we saw down there. I live in South Dakota so it was not my biggest worry. I can see how a person from AZ would have problems. We had a guy named Parker in my platoon. He was from Hawaii. That poor man froze most of the time. When we marched he would wear his poly pros (long johns), field jacket, and gloves most of the time.

I'm actually shipping to Benning for BCT come Monday (non infantry though.)

I'll let you know how bad it sucks once I get to Lee in July for AIT.

I was an October class in 2006. Froze my balls off. Nothing like running in shorts when its 40 degrees out and raining. Have fun my fellow Arizonans.

I feel your pain. Nothing like mid thigh shorts and shower shoes on a cold rainy winter night.
