BCT Day 5

Today was a very easy day. Basic has turned out easier than I expected. All I have to do is listen to the drill sergeant and shut my mouth. Also, follow directions carefully and don’t do anything they don’t tell you to do.

Today was a very easy day. Basic has turned out easier than I expected. All I have to do is listen to the drill sergeant and shut my mouth. Also, follow directions carefully and don’t do anything they don’t tell you to do. My platoon is lucky. Compared to the drill sergeants of the other 3 platoons, ours are easygoing. Only one of the three is a ********.

All we did today was take a 15 minute road march as a company. That is, over 250 soldiers marched in unison. It was a pretty awesome sight from the middle of the pack. The march was to the supply room where we got field equipment like a pistol belt, canteen, poncho, ammo pouches, etc. It sucked standing in line to wait because we lined up alphabetically. I must’ve stood for a couple of hours, but I don’t know, I’m beginning to get used to letting time pass. When I come back home maybe I won’t be so impatient anymore.

Besides that, we marched very little, got smoked a few times, and ate three meals. We spent our free time putting our new toys together. Well, I’m going now. I have to run the CQ desk from 0300 to 0400. I don’t know what CQ stands for, but I get to sit there and record the head count from the fire guard(which I had last night from 2100 to 2200). On my fire guard shift, I got to turn in two head counts and scrub the stairs. There’s always something to do in BCT.
