I keep hearing that I will have to attend the 6 week cycle at Ft Leonardwood since I'm Prior Service . Is this true cause according to AR 601-210 I don't have to.

As a current DS as Fort Leonard Wood, and a member of the battalion which ran the prior service cycles I can confirm
the six week cycles are not happening anymore. And if you have been out more than three years you will attend BCT. Guys with Ranger tabs, Sapper tabs, with long tabs, yes GREEN BERETS have gone back through BCT as result of being out too long. Just the way things are right now. If you have specific questions PM me and I will provide more info.

I bet those guys kind of think doing BCT again is fun. I think I would.

AR 601-210 Section III 5-16
"(d) All PS applicants who have had a break in service of over 3 years will attend Army BCT. PS applicants with a break in service of 3 or more years will be retrained regardless of enlisting with old MOS. Break in service is defined as last period of service, to include IRR, regardless of component. For the purpose of this section, for Soldiers who separate, break in service starts after MSO under 10 USC 651 is completed, or when a Soldier (regardless of Service) is no longer a member of an RC (including the IRR)."

So I guess that if it is less than 3 years you shouldn't have to attend basic training.

That was the regulation in 1982, when I transferred to RA from NG....... or at least very similar to it. Suspect, WTC was a GWOT era invention to increase output.

WTC is gone. Too many zoomies and squids were coming out are up. If you were PS in one of those two, as was I, you go through boot.

SGT (Join to see) - Yeah when you see a training program bounce from TRADOC post to TRADOC post.....usually a key sign it is not well loved by the higher ups.....heh-heh. They did pass some really good people through the program though it wasn't all bad. It was one of those programs that depended on the honor and integrity of the participant.
