    i understand i need to fill out a ton of forms determining what kind of benefits i'll be eligible for in the future at basic. such as accepting the gi bill and a reduction of $100 pay per paycheck.... etc. i did some research and only found a few. is there anything i should look into or might surprise me? tips or advice etc. thanks

    they will walk you through everything. holding your hand at each station

    Now that they changed to the post 9/11 GI Bill, you SHOULD NOT have to contribute anything. Accepting it used to take place at MEPS before you even ship out. Your local recruiter will be able to point you in the right direction.
    Other than that, be sure to sign up for USAA banking. many love it, some hate it, but overall they are a great company

    Many parts of basic will be an assembly line. Just try to pay attention when they are explaining what to do.

    We had one guy opt out of the MGIB, and the TI went nuts making sure that he knew what he had just signed out of.

    This. DO NOT SIGN UP FOR SOME SHITTY BANK THAT RESIDES OUTSIDE OF YOUR BCT/OSUT LOCATION. USAA or NavyFCU are the only ways to go.

    bleh i wasnt right when i typed that. just keep your current account.

    don't pass up USAA in the future when you're doing insurance, though.
