    I had my birthday during BMT. It was actually the first Monday of the fifth week of training (which means BEAST week). It turned out to be one of the most chaotic and stressful days yet. There was such a shift from "being told exactly what to do and how to do it" to "ok here you are, figure it out' that most of us had a difficult time with the change. I think I only managed three hours of sleep that night. Happy birthday, me.

    Anyways, if I do end up going to the AFA then I will be having my birthday during BCT. Awesome.

    Birthdays aren't that big of a deal. It will feel like any other day.

    I had a birthday during BMT. If I get an appointment I will be having my birthday at BCT as well. Two year gap between Basic Trainings though.

    And no offense bro, but posting a picture of yourself as your avatar may not be the best solution for trying to stay under the radar. May want to change that.

    We had a few unlucky guys get their birthday noticed during BMT. Luckily the MTI didn't notice my 18th but the guy who did get his noticed had to run down the middle aisle while the rest of us waited for him to pass and throw our fist at him.

    I had my 19th birthday in Jack's Valley. I was fortunate enough to have it fall on the day my squad was doing Airmanship 100. So on my birthday instead of having a birthday beat session, we got glider flights and a ride on the Twin Otter. My cadre didn't find out it was my birthday until the next day and we actually received no extra attention becuase of it. However one of the flights in the tent next to ours had a birthday training session because it was one of their cadre's birthday, so watch out for that, too.
