A brief description of what to expect during your Basic Training
You will start learning the Manual of Arms of the M-16 rifle. This is called Army Drill and Ceremonies.
You will find out what guard duty is all about - including the composition, purpose, and duties of a guard, and the meaning of General and Special Orders.
You may start on your Basic Rifle Marksmanship Course (BRMC) and learn the function and nomenclature of your rifle - how to assemble, disassemble, and clean the weapon and adjust the sight.
You will learn to prepare for and have your first barracks inspection. Should your first inspection not be good enough, don't worry - you'll get better.
