I’m heading to Eustis to reclass to 15R. I’ll be in H Co 1-222 for the duration. I was there 6 yrs ago when I reclassify to 15T. Has it changed much in 6 years? It was pretty easy going then.

I just came from being an instructor there, and it was pretty good. I wanna day that you’ll be staying in bldg. 699 (or a number close to that), over by McClellan gym. 1SG Tackett will be the first Sergeant for h co.

There’s quite a bit that has changed at fort Eustis from six years ago. You’ll notice that the old barracks have been demolished and the AIT barracks pt field is where most are going to partake in the ACFT (that’s a huge deal right now.) the 15R instructors are pretty easy going. As long as you are familiar with Jefferson avenue and Warwick Avenue then it’s easy to navigate Newport News. Best of luck, see you in Korea after AIT! (J/k)

The ACFT isn’t for record until next year, right...?

I don't know, never been. I bestow upon you a lesser known verse from a prayer to rotary wing pilots - May your hydrolic lines all be replaced on the same day, as to prevent finding the weakest hose whilst under maximum takoff rpm, with full crew and full passenger manifest.
May hydrolic pressure never fail, but you must always believe-
May your tail rotor forever remain behind you, forever silent, but always diligently proving it is faster than the main rotor. Let it, we all know, it's the main rotor that uplifts us into the sky, and if the engine shall refuse to participate in the flight, it is the almighty main rotor to to the rescue once again, displaying the wonderment of autorotation, along with a fierce belief in a religious affiliation, many rapid, successive promises to be a better, humbler servant of God of your choosing, interlaced with profanity (that part is the disclaimer for after the event if promises aren't fulfilled made under duress), the mighty main rotor blade, gently bings the craft to 0' AGL, all intact.
Most importantly, all on board walking away. Limping away is tolerable as one or might be in need of a cleaner flight suit than whence the day began.
Be well, blue skies, and may you always have a tailwind.

Good luck at FT Eustis, I have never been graced with it's presence.
