Wink Veterans...remember Basic?

Yeah, like many I'm just counting the days until the season opens!

With so many TBH Currently serving & Vets, just wanted to share this pic I got from my Drill Sgt son today. Training the "newbies" in the gas house at Fort Benning.

Remember those days? Guess Jake is passing down his basic training with a vengeance for the new ones.

Making Hero's and God Bless them ALL!

Yup. C-17-4 in 1977. Heartbreak, Misery, and Agony.

Didn't like the gas chamber but it was still better than that final march.

I actually like the gas chamber I never have sinus problems for about six months afterwards.
The worst I ever had was the **** POGs got the training schedule butt backed up in their own world and it opened the gas chamber up for us grunts who have to do it every 6 months so we went and did it and then we’re told by the Battalion Commanders driver to Ruck straight to the rifle and pistol qual ranges and do our quarterly qual. We were like ***
still shot 39/40 but man my eyes were burning. It was in July too total **** show

Yep and it was the worse experience thought basic. One of the guys ran out, and they left us in there while they tracked him down to bring him back in. We got an extra dose.

Almost switched to the Bio-hazard NCO until I got told I'd have to go into the gas chamber again for the MOS. Nope
