Hey all... Just wanted to give you a quick heads up from Fort Benning, GA, while I'm here for OCS. Class 09-06, 3/11 Charlie Co! Started OCS nearly a week ago now and the first thing I have to say is WOW. OCS is un-real! We are treated, thus far, like gentleman and allowed a HUGE amount of personal freedom for both formations and personal time. We have 4 4-day passes thoughout the 14-week cycle, generally finish training right at about 1800 and then prepare for the next days events. Tomorrow we have our first ruck march plus Water Training. Joy. As for me, I'm coming right out of Fort Bennings BCTB at Delta 2/47. Here at OCS, day 1, I was made Squad Leader! Naturally the Plt Sgt injured herself today so I got promoted to Plt Sgt with no experience. Lemme tell ya marching troops is a hell of a lot harder than I expected! I was quickly replaced by a Prior Service guy with a great deal more experince than myself. Beyond that, OCS fucking rocks! If anyone is in or near Fort Benning, lemme know. Not this weekend, but next, I have a 4-day pass and intend on staying at the Holiday Inn off exit 7. Shoot me an e-mail or PM and I'll get back too ya.
