You'll report in to the Adjutant General battalion, usually at 2 - 3 at night. You'll have your first encounter with a Drill Sergeant, you'll fill out paperwork, get issued one set of PT uniforms, then get an hour or so of sleep. Next few days will be in-processing - you'll get a bunch of shots, do some classroom stuff, take your initial PT test, get your head shaved, get your uniforms issued, get your ID card issued, etc. Then you sit and wait until a BCT unit is ready to receive you. This whole process.. ten days to two weeks is the norm.

What did Marcus woodcock have to do with the Civil War?

Woodcock was an educated Union sympathizer from Kentucky who joined a pro-Union militia unit that in due course became the Ninth Kentucky Infantry in the Union army. He won a commission, was wounded in Georgia, and survived not only several major battles, including Perryville and Chickamauga, but camp diseases and army doctors as well. He wrote about his journeys and his writing reveals much about the early, erratic days of the volunteer regiments, about the politics of the border states, and about the comic aspects of the war, such as camp riots caused by bad whiskey or stray animals.

What American generals commanded the American Expeditionary Force on the Western Front during World War 1?

From start to finish the commander of the AEF was General John J. "Blackjack" Pershing. When the AEF was sufficiently large enough to form a field army Pershing also commanded the First US Army. When there were enough divisions to form the Second United States Army, Pershing moved up to command the American Army Group, Lieutenant General Hunter Liggett took over First Army, and Lieutenant General Robert Bullard commanded Second Army. The Third US Army was formed four days before the Armistice, and saw no action. It was initially commanded by Major General Joseph Dickman.

When were the first combat troops sent to vietnam?

The term "combat troops" is confusing to civilians (and some military personnel too) because the term has been abused for so long. All US Army personnel are combat troops with specialized branches that specialize into specific combat jobs, formerly (which is why they used to go to BOOT CAMP; formerly known as Basic Combat Infantryman's Training) known as the combat arms branch: Armor (tanks), Artillery (cannons), and the Infantry (formerly fighting men/foot soldiers). During the late 1990 the US Army "may" have added other branches to that specialized combat arms system. Rumor control stated that the aviation branch was added to the combat arms system. The combat arms of the US Army are the conventional fighting branches of the US Army (or was during the Viet War days). US Combat troops, along with specialized troops were deployed to SOUTH Vietnam in 1955. CONVENTIONAL forces (those combat arms men previously discussed above were deployed in 1965).

Why would the army have some recruits ship to boot camp 5 days before the majority show up?

Army = Basic Combat Training (BCT) or One Station Unit Training (OSUT), dependent on your MOS. Marine Corps/Navy = Boot Camp When you leave for Basic/Boot Camp, you ship out from the Military Entrance Processing Centre (MEPS) - the same facility you would've signed your enlistment papers out. When you arrive, you are received at the Adjutant General Battalion (Army - don't know what it is for the other services), during which time you will receive your vaccinations, initial uniform issue, sign up for Tricare, etc. You will be held there until both a unit "downrange" becomes available, and there is a sufficient number of personnel to fill this unit. That may take two weeks or more.
