    My son is going to CTLT this summer prior to LDAC and I was wondering, where do they live during the time they are there?

    He was thrilled to get a spot with Military Intelligence since that's what branch he is hoping to get. He will be at Fort Bliss in Texas.

    Usually the base lodge or hotel, rarely the furnished BOQ.

    There's a nice overpass he can live under, out by Canutillo.

    cjs,

    He is going to have housing. Scout and clarkson had different approaches on how to tell you it, but the result is the same.

    1. Trust the Army
    2. Talk to your DS

    There is a fine line between being a parent that wants to learn/understand and a helo parent.

    I am not saying you are a helo, I am saying there is a fine line.

    I know that he will have housing. I was with my mom and she asked me and my answer was I have no idea so posed the question on here from my cell phone.

    Never honestly thought me being curious would make me a helo parent!!

    I only posted this out of my own curiosity, not as a question my son asked.

    As far as he is concerned, he has been so busy with school, FTX and the end of year with ROTC that I don't know if he has even stopped to think about it. I haven't even discussed housing with him with the exception of him making the comment when he found out that he hopes they live on base again. Did that prior to CULP last summer,

    I have to agree with you cjs. I think that sometimes parents just have a question out of curiosity, and often their kid in the military doesn't have the time to answer. There is nothing wrong with a parent asking a questions here, and it doesn't make them a helo parent. I have often been curious about things my son was doing, including where he would be staying while on a TDY. This forum is here to answer questions.

    Feel free to ask away in the future, cjs.

    Concur with Stealth...nothing wrong with asking...I was just encouraging you all to make sure your Cadet was getting information from their Cadre, and passing it on vice checking with a bunch of discussion boarders that will speculate the heck out of something they have little knowledge of. CTLT housing is a very assignment dependent thing. I don't think any of the boarders would know where your Cadet will be bunking this year.

    cjs,

    I was not saying you are a helo.

    I said:

    Again, I am not saying you are a helo, I am saying there is a fine line and that line can be blurred by posters in their response.

    To be honest it doesn't really matter where he is staying. Between the 0445 wake ups and late night work obligations (including soldier issues/problems) he won't even be there much. At least that was my experience...

    Welcome to the board! You'll soon learn some love to quickly jump to conclusions, but its typically with 13 to 17 year olds.

    Did see if this was answered above, but at Ft. Bliss, cadets stay at the Ft. Bliss Inn. Last year, it was two cadets per room. The sponsor LT's usually picked the cadets up and drove them around. The hotel is within walking distance to a DFAC and a mall; just make sure the cadet gets a meal card during inprocessing!
