Advanced Individual Training has been pretty nice so far. The drill sergeants have dwindled and lightened up a bit. Us soldiers have gotten into a routine. We wake up, do some physical training, eat breakfast chow, and then march to class.
Most of our classes are straight power point slides that we take notes from. Once done with all of the content, we will be able to do more hands on training. Sitting through the power point presentations sometimes seems really tiring. It is hard to sit in one place and stay awake. A bunch of us struggle to stay awake, but we manage.
After our classes, we march back to the barracks and usually do some more physical training. Shortly after that, we form up for dinner chow. Finally, after chow, we receive mail and get sent to personal time when we shower, get ready for the next day, write and read letters, and then… sleep!
Like I’ve said before, AIT isn’t too bad. We get tested on everything we are learning. I’m a bit nervous about that part, but not really because I know I do well at the classroom stuff.
Until next time,
