    Hello CaseyM!

    My name is Adam, welcome to the forum! Congrats on joining the Army, I will be joining you for basic training January at Ft. Leonard Wood. My start date is January 4th, but it's my understanding from previous topics, that getting everyone together for basic is a multi-day process, so maybe we'll see each other! I'm a 68W (Combat Medic), and my AIT will be at Ft. Sam Houston in San Antonio.
