    Good afternoon everyone, So my wife is at BOLC and she has begun her classes. Please do not take this and not prepare but she told me that compared to Basic, BOLC is summercamp. Like all Army schools it is a hurry up and wait game but, the cool thing is she was offered for her first PT test to be the record for her class or she could take one at the end, so my advise is prepare and get it over with in the beginning. If you have any questions please ask and I will ask her and respond. Best wishes and again good luck to all.
    lol, well heck yeah it is summer camp, they get cell phones, weekends out, stay in barracks type rooms, and well, they are officers lol.

    Anyone on here have any recommendations on apartments in San Antonio/Ft. Sam?? I am beginning the process of looking for a place to move and it is a bit overwhelming. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    You know officially you have been pulled off the OML?

    LOL, yeah not just weekends. They basically live a permanent party life but train. I guess my issue is that these will be future leaders in the Army and pehaps should know the basics so they can ensure all Soldiers under them maintain the standard and are able to be knowledgable in what Be, Know and Do actually represent. But yeah they are medical officers so I guess it is a different arena. They stay in 2 man rooms that are pretty nice and they are cleaned by housekeeping everyday!!!!, except on weekends. What in the world, No area beautification parties!!! LOL

    LOL. The funny thing she did tell me is that the only one really chewing people out is the actual company 1SG. He reminds her of the CSM from we were Soldiers.

    lol, IN Korea I had the meanest CSM of all time. He once dropped his phone while walking into the battery. I seen him drop it from far away, ran and grabbed it and went into the battery to hand it to him. When I walked in he was gone and CQ said he just walked out the other door, As I came back around I seen him walking to me, I said CSM your phone just fell, He snatched it outta my hands, yelled at me "where did you get this?" I said you dropped it walking inot the battery. He said "The only thing I drop is uppity specialists." "Get down and start pushing." From that point I hated the dude lol.

    Since you are permanent party at Ft Sam, you will not be provided lodging during BOLC. You need to find an apartment or house when you arrive, and you will start receiving BAH immediately. You will get 10 days TLE that you can take either at home or when you arrive. We took it when we arrived and used that time to lease a house.

    Look into doing a partial PPM if you're driving here.

    Google DLA.

    You should be reimbursed for you and your wife's travel, but I'm not sure how that works since we moved together... google it or ask around once you get here. I have several classmates who came out before their families and it worked out fine for them.

    It doesn't hurt to get on the waiting list for housing. Call the housing office... they will put you on the list as soon as you have orders in hand that you can fax to them along with your completed application.

    There are plenty of options that are safe and less than or right around BAH. Be sure to check out the greatschools web site if your kids are school aged.
    Thank you so much for all the info as it has been very helpful. Today someone from the ONe Source Housing contacted me and got all my information to help me find a place to live. They are supposed to be calling me back tomorrow so I can talk to a relocation specialist who is supposed to work with me on finding a place that will work for me and my family. I hear the waiting list for base housing is pretty extensive as I figured it would be and that it might be cheaper to move off post anyway. Like I stated earlier, I have to be careful not to get to far in over my head and watch my payment but I need something safe in a good area for my wife and daughter.
