Recruits Going To Basic
« on: April 20, 2020, 19:58:12 »
The best time of year weather wise is now , so its good to begin in the spring because it gets damn hot in South Carlina and Georgia. I reported for Basic in early March 1972, then I did infantry training at Ft Polk, and in Early July Ireported to Jump School at benning. It gets hot in the South but at least Benning had outdoor showers for a quick cool down,mind keeping your boots dry. At Ft Polk we were trucked most everywhere so no formation runs or more running.
