    Inprocessing is between 0900-1600, I believe. You just have to arrive somewhere in that timeframe.

    Hello, future BOLC-ers! Welcome in advance to Fort Sam Houston, an excellent base with a beautiful city right outside her gates. We (the class preceding you) will be completing our final week in the field this week as you are preparing to make your way to San Antonio. I encourage you all to come ready to learn, armed with patience and a willingness to participate, even when the topic matter seems irrelevant to your profession. I also want to remind you that no matter how difficult it seems for you, things are harder for the regular troops, and now matter how much your day sucks, you're getting ready to support them. Make their safety and comfort your mission and you'll do well here. If any of you have any questions, please feel free to shoot me a PM. I've been here since January so I have become familiar with the area and some of the base. I understand we may get a chance to meet some of you, so good luck, and perhaps I shall see you in the weeks to come!

    Thank you. I am SO EXCITED! I have been bouncing off the walls ever since my orders got here on Wednesday. Hope I get to meet you! I'm the short redhead who made the height requirement by a mere 1" ... LOL

    Anyone familiar with Ft Sam know where I would be able to find Inspection Ready Berets? Why go through the hassle if I don't have to right? Thanks!

    Inspection Ready Berets?/ Are you authorized to wear them?

    I sure hope so. My recruiter took me to get one but they were sold out at Ft Meade so he told me to find one at Ft Sam when I got here. How can I find out if I'm authorized or not?

    Thanks.

    Go to Kim's. It's outside the gate closest to AMEDD school.

    I've been here for 2 weeks & pleased the weather has been pretty nice for SA...just how I had hoped. I thought I was pretty, dang good at maps & then have been having fun getting lost at FSH ever since I got here, lol.
    As for PT, I am more than likely one of the ones that won't be meeting my PT test baseline first go around, so I've just been praying that I get past the first one w/out embarassing myself completely, ha. I've just had so much to do over the past couple months & dropped my routine because of traveling, etc, between all my work days & so have not been able to get into my normal workout routine for a while....Wahhhhh! I'm definitely not running my minutes...! We'll get through it!!!!!
