    Default Fort Sill Basic Training and FT leonardwood AIT

    Set for fort Sill Apr 7, 2010 MOS MP specializing in Corrections (31E).

    I have been in the field of corrections for the past 3 yrs. So I understand the job and its long hours and unappreciation.

    1) What should I bring as far as hygine and under garmins.

    2) What freedoms do I receive back once in AIT. (Cell phone, Debit card, computer and or my vehicle.)

    Thanks!

    Midtown, your recruiter should give you the basic item list to bring to OSUT training.

    Freedoms are still stringent in the AIT Portion of OSUT. I dont know if you will have a pass. I didnt as an AIT soldier at FLW.

    I know cell phones are ok but dont about the rest.

    AIT Soldiers run rampant around here (FLW) with their cells, their computers. We seriously avoid going anywhere on post on the weekend because AIT Soldiers are all over the place.

    But in the end it all depends on your AIT DS.

    Good luck!

    In AIT you earn your prvilleges asa whole. The DS's can take them away just as fast as you earn them. It's all about everyone cooperating and functioning as a team.

    Every post I had been to that had AIT as everyone has posted, the AIT soldiers were all over the place. Keep in mindtThere are places that you wont be able to go and people you wont (shouldnt) be mingling with.

    I dont know whats the deal with todays recruiters, while I was a recruiter I provided my DEP's with the packing list as soon as they made it back to my office. That is one of the first things a Recruiter should do.

    Midtown,

    Have you checked out the websites specifically setup for us future soldiers?

    http://futuresoldiercenter.com
    This site has forums restricted to future soldiers and lists of FS MOS's and Ship dates.

    http://futuresoldiers.com
    This one has the Future Soldiers Training System which can get you promoted, and a future soldiers chat of just future soldiers and a former drill sergeant.
