    I am in the NG and I am a SMP Cadet in ROTC. I will be commissioning in December so I need to start trying to schedule BOLC 2. I was just wondering what anyone else that has attended BOLC 2 at Sill or Benning thinks.

    I went to Basic Training and AIT at Ft Leonard Wood so I am sure BOLC 2 and 3 will be a lot better

    Went to Benning as well. It's hot as balls, and the training is pretty serious.

    Benning...home of the Infantry/Ranger...

    what more do you need to know?





    In all seriousness, No one I know has liked Sill (BOLC II wise)....Benning does suck in the summer and the training is hooah focused but all in all, I'm glad I went to Benning and no where else.

    Great thanks for the heads up everyone. I will hopefully be heading to BOLC2 in Jan or Feb and then off to Ft. Gordon for Signal school BOLC3 right after. Now I just have to try and get those dates so I can deploy with my unit.

    Unless something changed, we kept a ton of alcohol in our barracks at Sill.

    ugh cannot start scheduling my BOLC dates until the accessions crap is done even though I am guard and guaranteed my position...

    I want to go to BOLC 2 in January or February but I think that will be tough...
