Hey, I hope I'm not breaking any rules here. I'm not a nurse but I'm married to one. I'm a physician assistant attending the June RC BOLC and I was hoping to get some contacts prior to getting there. My unit hasn't had a PA in 6 years and they haven't been able to give me any info except to tell me I'm all signed up and good to go.
Hello, I am also heading to Fort Sam on Thursday, wow it is fast approaching. I am not a nurse either. I am a 73A, social worker. I believe we get partial BHS but I think it depends on if you have a family. I talked with some other folks who went before me and they got BAH but a reduced amount. Was about 900 dollars but depends on what state you live in. What time are people landing in San Antonio. My unit doesn't allow us to rent cars so I will be one of the ones catching a cab to the base. Anyway, I am looking forward to starting and learning new things.
I take my pup to Eisenhower all the time. Great beginner trails for a big boy like him.
Have you all ever been out to Government Canyon State Natural Area, off of Culebra outside 1604? It's on the recharge zone for the Edwards Aquifer. There are dinosaur footprints there! Just take plenty of H2O.
There are actually tons of parks/areas like that around here.
