    will I be able to bring supplements to west point? I hit a very late growth spurt and the doctor says I'm due to grow again so I have several vitamins that I'm suppose to take to ensure good growth and help protect me from overuse injuries. will I be able to take these to R-day?

    If they are prescription vitamins from your family doctor then you will bring them, turn them in and they will be re-issued by an army doctor. You will not be permitted to bring OTC supplements, although you can purchase major brands of vitamins at the C Store (my guys still love Flinstones Multi's with Iron!). After CBT you will be able to go the GNC located at the PX and purchase most anything you want...

    Nope. They address this issue in the instructions for accepted candidates.
