    It's going to be a looooooooooong basic this year. I highly recommend that you get in shape and enjoy these two months before you get nine months of "the doolie life."

    Yeah, why will it be long as opposed to any other year?

    The length will be the same. Basic got reworked and it's going to be much more difficult for this year's class.

    Almost twice the amount of discretionary time for physical training... (rumored)

    Much more difficult than it was for the "kinder and gentler" BCT for the Class of 2017 or much more difficult than it was for the classes back when BCT was hard? :cool:

    So what part of BCT suffers if they are increasing physical training?

    The first one :wink:

    That's a good question that I don't have the answer to. I'll see what I can find out though.

    I've heard that they cut out many of the various briefings we had, and that some of that is condensed into the week of military training after Acceptance day and before classes start. Almost all of this is still speculation at this point though.

    Seeing as I know that one of the vice commanders of BCT had some special ops training just recently, it makes me wonder what they have planned. (Please forgive me if I have the rank incorrect. All I know is that he is one of 2 second in charge.)

    Yes, he's in my squad and made ALO last month. He's been talking about how tough it's going to be. I'll ask him for some clarification if I run into him tonight.

    Are they trying to make it harder just to make it harder or is there a purpose? One thing I hated more than anything, when I was enlisted many moons ago, was pointless training. Did they think the c/o 2017 missed something or that their training was lacking in some way?

    The class of '17 as a whole was considered too undisciplined and they are looking to change that in the future.

    I'll pass the word along :thumb:

    LFry94, with that being said do you know if 2018 will still get to eat at ease after basic and have the unlimited pass system?

    As far as I am aware, you will still get to eat at ease and have unlimited passes. I haven't heard of any changes to either of those.
