    Leaving for Basic Training Monday

    I am heading to Ft. Knox Kentucky on Monday to start my basic training for 19D Cavalry Scout for the U.S. Army. I want to thank everyone on the forum for all the information, knowledge and wisdom I have received since I joined this forum. I truly feel that the people on this forum are like family and we all generally care about each other. Thank you all, and I will be online until Sunday, but then I won't be checking in with this forum for a few months so I wish everyone the best through this holiday season and I will be back with everyone around Christmas time.

    Congratulations. I'm really excited for you. One of the best days of my life was the day I was sworn in and left for basic. Soak it up. You'll always remember these days.

    Keep your head down, follow directions, keep a positive attitude and you'll do great!!! Basic training is one of those times in your life you will never forget!! As well, you will feel a great sense of accomplishment when you've completed it!!

    Thanks for your service and good luck! I did my basic at Knox back in Aug-Oct 1961. I'm certain the place has changed a lot since then, but overall it is a pretty nice Fort compared to some! Have a great time and keep us informed when you get to a computer next.

    I entered "Boot Camp" at Bainbridge,MD (since closed) in August 1955. I was only seventeen years old and had never been away from home. I had quit high school and joined the Navy. I studied and got my GED, went to Air Conditioning and Refrigeration School in Norfolk,VA., picked up a few college credits. The Navy set the guidelines for my life, only spent 3 1/2 years. The military is what YOU make. Thank you for your service and stay safe.

    Ah yes...it was Dec. 6, 1977...the day I learned what the term "Get your head outta your ass" meant.

    God Bless you young man. I wish you the best and I thank you and your family for serving.

    Good luck with your basic, everything will still be here when you come back. Basic/boot is the easiest part of being in the service, just remember to move quick and do what you are told.
