Is rifle qual part of WOCS/required for those of us coming in from another branch? I don't know if the army is like the USMC where you were required to have an annual rifle qual on record

 

Mike

You won't do any firearms qualifications during WOCS at all and only a pistol qualification during WOBC.

A few of us that post here are beginning the B Co pipeline so I, and maybe others, will try to update with the most current info being put out.

Just wanted to ask if this guide is still pretty accurate for the most past? I know things can change often and seeing this hasn't been updated since 08/13 just has me wondering. Thanks!

Ive offered to send the original .doc to anyone wanting to update it but no one stepped up. Since then Ive replaced my computer and dont have the .doc, just the pdf. But please, feel free to update. Lots of stuff has changed. Hell, everything involving an aircraft has changed.

Quick question..do you have to wear the standard issue boots in WOCS? Or can you go with any brand of boot that is allowed in uniform? Asking due to being prior service and currently having no gear as of now. Would like to go ahead and break in a pair of boots before I leave if possible.

Definitely get you a nice pair of boots for the Ruck. Also have new or well cleaned boots for your integration day.

Mike

6.2 miles in 106 minutes with 48 lbs or 30% of body weight.
That is before adding your hydration system to it, so probably 7-10 lbs heavier.


Id definitely practice a couple of times before going just to identify any foot issues and to gain confidence that you'll pass. Its super easy, though. If honor grad is important to you, you will want to run it.

The whole school is a joke, not just the ruck.

It has minor hills. Nothing that will get you out of breath.

Anyone have any issues scheduling their SIFT? I had mine scheduled for what I thought was next Wednesday morning, but my recruiter contacted me today to say that they only do the SIFT testing the 2nd Friday of each month (I'll be taking it at Atlanta MEPS). 

 

Anyone else experience this?
