Thanks for the info that helps a lot. I can't seem to find much information on AMEDD BOLC graduation. Was it outside or inside? Is it kind of like a college graduation or more like basic training graduation? Can families attend?

Thank you for the informative post! I just got unofficial confirmation from my AMEDD recruiter that I have been selected for HPSP for CRNA and have been reading as much as I can about the training process. I appreciate the recent first hand accounting.

Belvoir is my #3! I'll be a 66H and go through CNTP though, but I'll reach out to you if I end up there!

Did you notice if a lot of people were PCS'd to a post that was on their list of top picks or were most people sent else where?

A lot had at least one of their duty assignments from their wish list. There were only a few of the unfavorable assignments from what I heard from others but really if you make the most of the area you are placed in then even the "worst" assignments can be beneficial and provide growing opportunities.

The AMEDD BOLC graduation was great. We didn't have to walk across the stage and shake hands or anything like that. We just sat together in a group, wore our Army Service Uniforms, sang the Army Song and stated the Soldier's Creed. Families are allowed to attend. We were inside of an auditorium.

Yeah, let me know for sure. Always good to know someone to where you may be PCS'ing.

Thanks for all of your input, it helps me a lot! Was graduation on a Friday? If so did you have the weekend off to spend with family before your 2 week track?

Did you have time in between DCC and BOLC to take leave?

Hey, sorry for the delay in responding. Yes you have the weekend off before nurse track. You have the weekends off most weekends as well during main track.

My class did because of holiday block leave during Christmas time. I believe that in most instances however, you will probably only be allowed your travel days for Fort Sill to Fort Sam which is 2 days or so.
