Student Trainee AIT
This was a welcomed and suprising change from basic training. We were in a dorm like environment. Co ed environment led to some interesting times. The Cadre was relaxed. We went to class in formation. Overall it was a goid experience sirt of like a college campus environment. I can only recall a few names but many faces because as you can imagine there were some memorable charecters. What stood out was the weather there as Ft.Sill was very cold in Jan and Feb. Doing PT on the frozen ground was brutal. I remember PFC Herring from NC because we were in same Basic training Co..different Plt. Pvt Deloach from Plano,Tx was with me in basic same Plt.
