    I have a few BCT questions that I could not find a clear answer to.

    1. What athletic shoes do you use during BCT? Are they the ones off your feet or are they issued?
    2. What is the list of forms you should be carrying with you on I-Day? I know they supply a list, but I've heard of other people saying bring this as well just in case, etc.
    3. Would you say the fitness plan given with the appointee handbook is sufficient enough to get through BCT? What should be tweaked if anything?
    4. How many pairs of compression shorts(if you're even allowed by your squadron to wear them)? And how many pairs of underwear?
    Thanks for all your help in advanced!

    1.They're issued.
    2.Whatever is on the list-don't forget the security clearance paperwork, that'll make your life a lot easier later on.
    3.I don't really remember what's in there, but make sure you can do well on the PFT/AFT and run 5+ miles at a time. If you're solid on calisthenics and running you will be just fine.
    4.I promise you that you'll be allowed to wear compression shorts. Most people do 3-5 pairs of black ones. Follow the guidance on underwear.

    If you receive a waiver for a medical condition, bring all the paperwork associated with that. My DD had made a copy of all the paperwork/medical info she sent to the waiver authority & brought it along. Apparently that paperwork is not shared with the 10th medical unit at USAFA.

    If they have a logo on the band, will we still be okay to bring them?

    As long as it isn't a gang sign you should be good to go.

    If I may add one thing regarding the security clearance. It was suggested to my DD that she keep a paper and electronic copy.. guarantee that you will be updating information on this form some time in the future and any discrepancies may raise a "red flag" and delay processimg...
