    I think its more then a rumor but this is just something I heard down the pipeline though it doesnt concern me. We already heard of the fake m16s getting handed out right away and we are going to a more war readiness type basic training.

    also heard the Army is going twoards AEFs like the Air force has to deter from the year deployments and have the 4 month ones like the AF to keep morale up in the ranks.

    The Command Chief had a bunch of enlisted calls a few weeks ago, "Evolving Warrior". He was telling us how the AF is going to be changing in the next 5 years or so. The basic training stuff was one of the topics he mentioned.

    Yup, they are trying to add a few more weeks for combat training.

    Earliest it would take effect would be in 2008, all depends on funding though.
