    Hello,

    I'm an Army ROTC cadet headed to CFT at the end of the month (30JUN). As I begin to organize all my equipment, I'm beginning to get a little overwhelmed. Just wanted to ask a few questions. I have the packing list, so I know WHAT I should bring. Does anyone have any tips on HOW to pack for Buckner?

    1. Are there any important items I should pack for easy access right away?
    2. Will there be an opportunity to organize our things in the barracks?
    3. Are there any items on the list you found unnecessary/ items NOT on the list that you found necessary?

    Any tips/tricks that you have would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I would love to also hear the answers to the above ?s so thank you for posting.

    DS is heading there on the same date but from USNA (9 usna mids joining the ~60 AROTC students as well as USMA rising yearlings) . He had to purchase his own ruck, dog tags, and army looking cover. After MUCH hassle, USNA issued him perspective eye wear inserts but not the shell to put them in...he thinks he gets them at USMA but that doesnt make much sense to me.
