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.
Take care an Thank You from my family!
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.

EOD - Initial success or total failure
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.

When you are at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
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.
