Hey all! Have some questions for anyone who's taken / been an instructor for this training. I'm especially interested in the POVs of any of my fellow National Guardsmen.

Found some good info here, but wanted some personal perspectives as well...

http://www.armystudyguide.com/content/Prep_For_Basic_Training/warrior_transition_course_information/index.shtml

Questions -

1 - What jumps out at you the most as something you'd wish you'd known before going to the training? Or, similarly, what's the most important advice you'd have for someone about to go to it? (Leaving out anything incredibly obvious like "be in good physical condition.")

2 - What is the training like as far as atmosphere/protocol? Is it really bootcamp-like? (Yelling, name-calling, super-formal protocol, etc.)

3 - Is there much in the way of personal time? Does it make sense to bring recreational material like laptop, books, ipod, etc? Or would it be as ridiculous as bringing things like that to Basic?

4 - Related to #2, are drill/parade/ceremony a component of that? Does it matter if you absolutely don't remember any of that stuff?

5 - Related to #3, is there anything you really wished you'd packed with you when you went there?

6 - Anything else?

Thanks in advance!
