    Eh, not from what I've heard lately. From what I've heard from people who came from there, it sounded pretty tough compared to how I had it at Ft. Sill (Ft. Chill).

    People love to exaggerate the difficulty of basic training. My guess is all the different posts are equally easy.

    it's easy if you are not retarded.

    worst part is dealing with the dumbfucks. that is the only hard part.

    Ex-wife did basic at Jackson. She had it easy as fuck.

    First time in I did basic at Sill. Was pretty tough.
    Did half of OSUT at Benning so got to at least see how basic was there. Army has gone soft. Basic isn't what it was even back in the 90's.

    I graduated from Fort Jackson last October, and let me tell you this:
    The whole relaxin at jackson thing isn't true. My company had 2 army ranger DS's, and the others were infantry, with the exception of the two females we had.

    Prepare yourself for sleep deprivation, a little bit of stress, and all that jazz.

    But looking back, it was fun, just make it past the first 2 weeks and you're good.

    gender-integrated BCT = easy

    shiiiiiit, we made up for the girls that lagged behind. everytime we rucked or ran or exercised, and the females lagged, we had to turn around, catch up to them, and turn back around and run just as far as we intended.

    don't hand me that crap about it's easy.

    haha

    :werd: I graduated from Jackson on August 6th, it wasnt bad really.. not for me at least. RWB Phase was the worst part for me, that's where we got smoked the worst because people fucked off so much. If you get into 114th or 360th you'll get your cell phone every sunday from 1300-1700. I heard the other Bn's don't, but I'm not too sure.. I know Ft. Sill gets their phones too. I'm at AIT with a lot of Sill guys and our BCT's sound about the same

    The females who fell out got picked up in the 1 ton and driven to the finish line and marked as a no go for everything, we just kept going when they fell out

    Bring as little as possible with you, dont have any kind of an attitude (ie. "I learned this in ROTC already :mb:"), listen and do what they tell you, try and be invisible.

    :werd: That's how we had it. Ft. Sill was a joke, they could only make us do 3 sets of 10 in cadence exercises at a time, then we'd have to rest 15 mins before they could do more. No PT (smokings) up to an hour after we ate, no cussing, no smoking us in the middle of the night. Boy was I in for a surprise at AIT tho :o.

    That is the problem. You end up doing a slow long run because you are going back and picking up stragglers over and over again.

    That's sad! Hell we had it harder at WTC then. That is also not the Basic I had in 1996. B 1/22.
