    my first 5 months were at the replacement fighting the doctors that tried to chapter me for mild hypertension...soo it was annoying as hell. i got along with most of the soldiers around me

    after arriving to my unit...i loved the first 5 months...then it started to suck as my job was given to a civilian and i became a DFAC officer :hsugh:

    After spending 9 months of BCT/AIT around Drill Sergeants, it sucked.

    I got to my unit and all was gravy.

    I spent the first 10 months or so in training. When I got to my unit finally, it was much easier. I was the new guy for a bit, so I was harassed daily, but that eventually wore off. In the early part, I would suggest that people STFU, learn as much as they can, and then pick on the next wave of new guys with ferocity.

    I'm Signal, 9 weeks of Basic, 9 weeks of AIT, and 2 weeks of leave....
    1st Unit.

    It was pretty cool in the beginning, the NCO's the unit had were laidback and left you alone as long as you did your job and didn't bitch. It's not hard to figure out....I wish I could go back to the first 6 months of my service.
