2 different worlds, but, it’s either 25B or 12B. Leaning more toward 25B just because I’m going to college for IT. Just wondering what I can expect as a non-IET soldier at fort Gordon.

25B school at Fort Gordon while is a longer career school it is not anything to shy away from. I went through it as an IET student but all of our courses where with reclassified soldiers who breezed through it. It is very informative but even the analytical parts are broken down to the KISS methodology. Since getting out of the service it's supported my career in every aspect. I highly recommend it and it's not a bad duty station for a reclassification brother.

You will be in separate barracks, however you will go to school with a bunch of privates fresh from Basic, and will most likely be designated as class leader

You'll live in separate barracks of course. The most you'll have to be with your IET company is during PT, and that really just depends on your company. You wont have to do the dumb formations and march around. You can go out on weekends. You're free after school. They cadre will treat you with more respect than the IET Soldiers. It'll be pretty chill man. They can't make you grade PT tests or administer UAs, so don't let them make you do that nonsense. Did I miss anything ? Oh yeah, don't fraternize with the recruits.

Why are Privates and MOS-T/reclassing soldiers forbidden to fraternize?

I'll be there as e-4 mos-t from USMC in a few weeks for 25b school. I plan to stay away from the privates, but just curious what the reason is.

Thanks!

Cpl Hawk Ware Good question. I heard three major reasons: 1) for ensuring they dont become distracted with the relationship , instead of focusing all school. 2) Preventing possible SHARP incidents 3) Many reclasses are NCOs, so it's better to cut them out of the equation entirely. There are probably more reasons, but I myself got busted for "fraternization" with another trainee when I was a PVT and those are what they said were the reasons for that rule. Some companies/battalions/brigades have different rules too. E/551 & D/551 were extremely strict whilst A/551 did not enforce fraternization at all essentially. Just depends. Good luck to you and your training !
