Disclaimer: The "patience" gene doesn't run in our family and neither one of my kids have the any. I remember my daughter going to LDAC in 2013 at Fort Lewis and complaining to me (via text message) how messed up everything was the first couple of days as they tried to process all of the incoming cadets. This was at a base where the program had been run for numerous years and she was in the 8th Regiment if I remember correctly. Fast forward two years and LDAC is gone and CLC will now be taking it's place. To top it off, they moved the entire operation to a whole new base at Fort Knox. When my son was chosen/assigned to attend CLC with the 1st Regiment, I told him from day one to "hold on, because it's going to be a bump ride". As he headed to the airport this morning, I reminded him to be patient because nothing was going to run smoothly based on past experience. Well, I guess it was worse that expected. Aside from hooking up with other cadets he knew at the airport in Louisville, it's been all downhill from there. They were "stranded" at the airport for 5+ hours and he said they absolutely got NOTHING done today. He described the entire operation as a "cluster_____".
