So the day came at last when our DS was coming to get us. We were all excited and nervous. Everyone said that life would be pretty easy if we were on our best behavior. If you ever go to basic beware of the rumors! People talk a lot of nonsense just so they can look like they know something. They usually are wrong, but that is not limited to just basic training.
The DS came and calmly directed us to put one of our bags on the duty truck. Then we filed into the buses and sat down with our other big green bag on our laps. There was a female and a male DS on our particular bus. They gave us a piece of paper with a number on it. They kindly welcomed us to For Leonard Wood and Alpha 795 MP Company, the best company on the base and home of the Avengers. “Welcome to the Rock…Hooah!”
