I'll be about 5 weeks into Basic when the break begins and am not planning on heading home*. From what information I can find I'll spend those 10 days doing various clerical, cleaning, and groundskeeping work. Is that a fair estimation of how I'll fill my time? My assumption would be that this break would be below the high tempo of an average training day, but will still include similar PT, meal schedules, etc. Will I be one of the few to stay?
I was just looking for some more insight as its probable someone here has gone through this in BCT or AIT. Feel free to throw in your two cents even if you haven't (not that I could stop you). Thanks!
(*I'm a grown man and have spent many holidays away. As nice as spending Christmas with some of my family can be, the homecoming would feel premature. Plus the expense and going 'in the hole' with leave after 5 weeks doesn't seem wise. Not to take anything away from anyone who does go home though! )
