    I thought it was either 13 or 14 weeks.

    the guard recruiter didn't k now what he's talkin' about.

    It's 68 training days, that doesn't include weekends or holidays. It works out to about 13 weeks. But you may not start class immediatly after you finish basic, especially if you're guard. Sometimes the guard and reserve guys have to wait a couple weeks on casual statis (where you basicly don't do anything) until they start class.

    I'm prior service. I hope my unit won't send me out there for 2 weeks of nothing since I'll be in TDY status.

    I'll be reenlisting on the 23rd. I guess I'll find out for sure then. Thanks for the replies.

    Default You were right, spectre

    68 training days. That's a long time to be away from my civilian job. I'm too stoked to worry about that though. Looks like I'll be there June 21st. Ah... summer in Texas.

    oh well, if you're tdy then you don't do the casual thing. You don't have to show up to the base until you actually start class.

    June 21st is a crap time to be here, blech. Sorry bro, have fun.

    edit: I know i was right about the 68 training days. I'm on day 43 right now
