Hello,

 

I am headed to Basic Combat Training (10 weeks) in Ft Jackson South Carolina in July. 

 

Since Prior Service Basic Training (6 weeks) went away, has anyone else been through regular basic recently or during the years when Prior Service basic was not available?

 

Just wondering how it went going through basic as a prior service/transfer sergeant?

 

 

I have seen quite a few post about this but just wondering if there has been anyone that went through recently?

I think there is still confusion here, I was told 6 week PSBCT is still around for qualified candidates by two sources directly involved in the WO recruitment process. Also, that it was not mandatory and that if PSBCT spots were not available I would be scheduled for 10 week to align with WOCS class dates.

The sergeants in my basic had separate quarters and got their cell phones.

The only people that had a for sure answer about Prior Service Basic training was MEPS. So if you still think there is a Prior Service basic, I would check with your MEPS liasion, otherwise you may be in for a surprise shen you find out PSBCT has been canceled.

6 weeks or 10 weeks I don't care. I still have to go back to BCT either way. I think all PS candidates are aware of that fact. It is just a barrier in between me and flight school. Hopefully, they just release a message with clarification and everyone can stop worrying about it. If it is not current policy, why not post a cancellation message for the PSBCT guidelines on the USAREC WO news section or on the HRC message page? In my current service, if anything changes on an active message, a new message is released covering changes or new policy with guidelines.

If they really are making all WOCS classes 5 weeks that'll save some time on the back end anyway.

Yeah it only really matters that it is 6 weeks or 10 weeks when you are trying to line things up for afterwards.
