Congratulations on your acceptance into the US Army! I was there for Officer Candidate School in 1966, graduated 27 Jan 1967 and was ordered to Ft Bragg and the 3SFG(A). Had gone through Basic Combat Training and Advanced Individual Training at Ft Jackson. Ft Benning is a huge post and you’ll come know it quite well. The programs have undoubtedly changed substantially since then but you’ll be given opportunities to excel. Follow the instructions of those appointed over you and stay out of trouble. You’ll make friends who will last a lifetime.
Not sure how the COVID restrictions at Benning are currently, but for Christmas Exodus, it usually happens that as soon as Christmas Break rolls around (dates will be designated), all troops WILL be sent home for Leave unless otherwise dictated (Soldiers in trouble, etc.). It will be Charged Leave. All instructions for Christmas Break during training will be given out by your Drill Sergeants/Cadre.
