So, I have a week before I leave for Basic Training at the Air Force Academy. I leave the 25th and inprocess the 26th. I'm kinda excited and a bit nervous. I've been running a lot, like 3-5 miles at a time, and doing a bunch of push-ups. I'm playing my last game of paintball Friday, and hanging out with friends and family...I have a few friends going in with me, and my best friend will be coming in next year (No doubt...he's waaaaay more qualified than I am ;)). I'm not quite sure what to expect. I just hope I'm not the idiot who laughs when the cadre start yelling...I have a bad habit of laughing when people yell. Any advice other than "It's all a game?" Oh, and if anyone wants to write me, PM me for my PO box...I've heard it helps to get mail.

Aw Benjie, it'll be okay Benj, I'll give you mine

Good to hear you're in the pipeline, though you may not be so glad once the BCT actually starts. :(

I don't have much advice to offer, other than listen very closely to what the DI's say, and don't overthink things.

Actually I'm working with Demons flight, so if you get assigned there, you'll see me on your staff list. Otherwise, look me up during Club Day after BCT ends.

Before. It's pretty much right after BCT ends, within two weeks afterward you'll hear about it.
