Everyone has been so inviting and helpful. It is hard to travel to a unknown place to not know where to go and without the help of so many people I don't know how all four of us would have survived. A...t lunch Buddy had several people came up to Buddy to shake his hand and thank him for his service. Wonderful See More

You know if you want people to feel welcomed when they come on to the Fort you probably shouldn't have old grumpy rude jerks who yell for absolutely no reason at people working at the welcome center l...ike Security officer Kent. I was nothing but nice and polite and he was nothing but rude and disrespectful. Everyone else I encountered were extremely nice. See More

Went through BCT here, got medically chaptered for mental health issues and the drill Sargents at the 3rd chemical brigade for Alpha company 2nd battalion 10th infantry unit made fun of mental health ...issues stating that "its not real" and "that you're faking it for attention". One of the drill sargents told a private to kill himself stating "Do it. Kill yourself. I find that shit funny." That private is also being medically chaptered for mental health reasons. I was forced by a drill sargent to write a letter to her parents apologizing for being a waste of tax payer dollars and being a waste of oxygen. I was also forced to apologize to a tree for being a waste of oxygen. If I had a way do fight against those drill sargents and get them fired I would. I understand that theyre supposed to be tough on you but when it comes to mental health the armys biggest thing with suicide is that 1 suicide is 1 too many. However, when some one is feeling that way the army doesnt deal with it properly. The person feeling that way is literally told "you signed a contract so suck it up and deal with it". They are literally no help whatsoever. People with mental health issues need help, not to be excluded and humiliated. See More

My son is currently in delta 2-10. I have to say that I am impressed. My son raves about the leadership, the drill Sargents, and the experience he is having in basic training. Makes a mommas's heart h...appy �. My sincere thanks to all involved with mentoring and developing him! See More

Nice base. BTW for any family who saw their kid graduate over the Thanksgiving holiday: if your kid didn’t complain about getting their stuff stolen, maybe your kid is the one doing the stealing. Thin...k about. Just because they joined the Army doesn’t make them good people. Keep your hands off other soldiers stuff! Thanks. See More

Every time I'm on an Army base I feel such pride and respect for our soldiers and country!!! People should respect their country and their flag and if they don't then they should leave and go to Russi...a or China and live there. I'm sick and tired of these liberals that have no respect for the men and woman that gave their lives for them!!!!! Well, I have no respect for those who do not support our Country, men and women in uniform, and our flag!!!!! See More

Not to happy, how can someone that has only been there 2 week's find out where they are going to be stationed. This is going to reflect on the next 6 week's. Not to smart. I didn't find out till my week!!! See More

This is one military base that will prove the power of our military. Son just arrived on 11/11 for his AIT. My father became an MP in the early 50's at this base. Proud to have my son walking in hi...s footsteps. See More

My cousin went here for basic training 4 years ago and he says this base and it's type of discipline has molded him into the soldier he is today. We went for his BCT Grad. Ceremony and we were very im...pressed, the base was clean and the other soldiers were very courteous. See More

Attended my Grandsons Graduation from Basic last week..I felt very proud and honored to be there..These young men and women go thru ALOT in there 10 weeks...They are taught respect, something I think... some of the parents and family of the graduates need to learn. We are all proud of the accomplishments are soldiers has made, but I think all the yelling and screaming should wait till the end..I felt so bad for all the young men and women who have worked so hard to be there and then you could not even hear there name or where they were from, because of the rudeness from family of the Soldier in front of them..PLEASE SAVE YOUR EXCITEMENT FOR LATER!!!!!! Show some Respect as "your" Soldier has done.. See More

I just wanted to write this quick review for all men and women in the Armed Forces here in The United States Of America past and present that defend this nation from all threats foreign and domestic. ...What citizens of The United States Of America need to realize is that their lives would not exist if it wasn't for what all people in uniform do to keep us safe. Think it's important to try to shake the hand of every Veteran and say the words 'Thank You for your service sir/ma'am.' It lets the people know who do probably have one of the most dangerous jobs in the World know you understand that premise. Stay safe and God bless you and The United States Of America. See More

Graduated BCT November, 2000. Delta 210 Raiders. Now I didn’t necessarily love every minute but I look back fondly on the memories and experiences that helped shape the person I am today. “Killer”

Loved seeing our Soilder for the first time in 5 months. Also it was the first time I got all 3 of my kids together. I love seeing my kids side by side in their uniforms. We are one proud Military ( and Navy) family!!! Don't want to say our "See you later" when leaving her tonight. It's never goodbye!! See More

Candlewood Suites was great! The graduation ceremony was not all bad, but they did not have enough seats for the families in that tiny theater. I loved how the BCT videos showed a lot of each soldier'...s experience. The only downside is there is literally nothing to do around the base. � See More
