    I went through it in late August.

    It's not too bad. Your platoon will probably be on a 4-day split. 1 day off, 1 cay quick reaction force, and 2 working days.

    You stay in shitty Camp Wilson, with quanset huts with no floors. The chow hall blows too. Not even a real chow all, it's just food brought inside the heated containers.

    There is a pretty good PX, and a Chinese restaurant on Wilson.

    As for the training, it's pretty basic stuff. MOUT towns with some Iraqi actors, all kinds of ranges to go to, pretty much what you expect. Lots of sitting in humvee's waiting for shit to happen while the Mojave Viper people tell your CO's how much they suck.
