    Motto - Compromise, No Standards


    This is, by far, the worst training I have endured since I entered service nearly a year ago. I pray no one from OT has to go though this course. Heaven help you if you do.


    IOBC in just over two weeks! :bigthumb:

    The word Warrior is missing from BOLC II. It can't be a real army school.

    My boss is going to be the Battalion Commander for the Signal School...I'm sure he'd be interested in your impressions of BOLC II. Care to elaborate?

    Quit complaining ;), I had to go through it in the dead heat of the summer. July 31-September 21.

    Fucking sucked.

    BOLC II is a good idea. The problem is, they half ass everything because they don't have enough time.

    The standards are not always equal either.

    IMO, BOLCIII was a much better course (even for infantry tactics).

    Orders get cut in May. Watch out for pinpoint orders.

    They're your orders to your unit of assignment. For instance in your case orders may be cut to 64th Replacement in Hannau, Germany. They will then turn around and issue pinpoint orders to your unit of assignment for instance, fires bde, 1AD. The fires BDE may then choose to assign you down to your battalion.

    If you get pinpoint orders immediatly, it means you are a priority fill. Which means you're gonna get a nice tan.:)

    Glad to see "they" improved the courses since I took them. :rolleyes: Zero defect mentality and all. FWIW, Fort Benning really sucks in August and September.

    just stay out of your drills way and let them do their jobs, and you'll do great

    T - 3 months till i commission. Much like brackac, its been a long road.
