    Sign in to 82nd reception wed. Should be going to 3rd BCT.

    Haven't been stationed on Bragg for 9 years and have been told tons have changed. Loved it last time I was there but of course I was Signal then stationed in 35th. 505 PIR should be a bit different :noes:

    Kinda......

    When I got out the first time I didn't go far. Built a house south of Raleigh so not that far out from Bragg. I kinda made sure I got stationed there. From what I'm hearing from some of my old buddies the post and the Army has changed. While back people got stuck on Bragg for 20 years but seems like the Army is trying to put a stop to that. Ohhh well.

    Going to see about getting on Campbell after they go on jump status in 2012. All my family now lives in Nashville so it will be nice to live close to family for a change.

    Wait what? what do you mean after Campbell goes on jump status? We have units here that jump, but AFAIK the 101st has no plans to change.

    You sure? While at WTC we got word that 101st was going back on jump status in 2012. I know there are unit in the 101st that jump but he was saying the whole division would be going back on jump status.

    Hey what the hell happened to US Cav? Went into clothing & sales and damn place was sold out of berets so was going to go down to US Cav but nope. I see General Jackson is still there but is that it?

    Fuck did they screw shit up when they closed that post! Was nice when there wasn't any gates.

    I hadnt heard this, but what i do know, is that there are many many people highly concerned about the lack of qualified jump expierience in the army right now. Maybe this is a fix to the problem.

    Im pretty sure this was a rumor. Ive been in the 4BCT 101st for 2 years now and havent heard anything about this. Nothing on the long range training calender either. Having said that, it would be pretty cool if we did :x:

    never seen a "us cav" store in fayetteville. been stationed here since feb 2008, and made yearly trips here when i was in the reserves from 03-08... the only place i know of a us cav store is at ft benning.

    as for general jacksons, they arent alone... just drive down yadkin and pretty much all the sewing places have preshaped/shaved berets. a decent (if not high priced) place is "airborne 1" theyll be on your left if you leave base from the yadkin gate. but check out the military pawn shops, and a place called "old sarge's" in spring lake.(its by where bragg blvd and 210 meet)

    hit me up any time for info if needed.

    Yeah I was on Bragg 97-00 and that building across from General Jackson was the US Cav store. I'm going to head down probably tuesday and pick up my shit before signing in. Going to take awhile to get used to all the changes here. Amazed somethings haven't changed. Still stopped in the barber that cut my hair 9 years ago.
