I received an appointment last week for the class of '19 and accepted the offer this morning. I completed Infantry OSUT last summer at Ft. Benning and was wondering how "Beast" compares to that. I have a hard time believing it will be as difficult, but I don't know any prior service cadets at West Point to ask. I would appreciate any thoughts or opinions on this. Note: I am in the National Guard and not a combat veteran, so going in I won't have any deployment experience to bring to the table.
