First off, please... please spare me the "you didn't have Drills in AIT?" "back in my day" etc comments. TRADOC runs that lane, and it was what it was when I first came in, good or bad.

But to the meat of my question is can anyone who has gone through school as a MOS-T with Drill Sgts now back share how it was for them? I asked the newest private in my section, but she graduated just before it happened, and wasn't able to tell me much that I didn't already have an idea about. I'm aware every school, post, unit, and cycle are different. I'm just wondering if MOS-T are also under Drill Sgts and/or have to adhere to the regulations IET soldiers are under? I have family I don't see often close to the base I'll be at, and I'm hoping to get the opportunity to go to where they live and spend time with them. Is what it is in the end. Just trying to get an idea of what to expect now that it has changed.

I have been going through AIT here at Fort Sill since May. I graduate in 2 weeks so I have observed the process here. We have been split into seperate platoons fairly randomly by class. There has only been a couple of drill sgts in the entire company and my plt was one that did not have a drill as the plt sgt. With that being said, the transitions (mos-t) students have been on a seperate set of rules than the privates. After class is done, we are free to go and return for pt the next day. The only regs that are the same for us and them is that we cant drink in the barracks but I'm sure that varies by command. We PT together and attend class together but thats it.

Not much has changed for MOS-T then it seems SSG. I know some schools MOS-T PT on their own away from IET, but either way that really isn't a big deal to me. No drinking in the barracks seems across the board from those I've talked to in the past. They all would just hang in the parking lot or smoke pit.

They don’t treat you like the IETs because you know how to soldier. Back when I reclassed, we had our own squad, went to chow on our own, and was used as class leaders. We did PT and attended 1st and COB formations. They didn’t bother us too much...

That is exactly what I'm expecting SFC. I appreciate your response. As it currently stands I will be going to Ft. Lee in the spring. I have heard from my sections new privates that it is a rather relaxed post as long as you mind your Ps and Qs. Sometimes Guardsmen catch flack just for being Guardsmen, and am trying to feel out of how, for lack of a better term, "hooah" it will be.

Obviously I can’t tell you for all bases and schools, because they’ll be different, but if you’re transferring into 15E, I think you’ll be at huachuca. As a MOS-T you’ll have much more freedom that the people in IET still. None of the TRADOC IET restrictions. This is true of each of the training battalions there. Weekends should pretty much be completely free for you, unless otherwise directed

My primary is currently 15E, and you are correct, Ft. Huachuca. That is how the MOS-T had it when I was there. Just wasn't sure if it changed since I went through AIT.
