How COVID-19 Is Changing US Army Boot Camp

9 266
The COVID-19 crisis is changing the way future Army soldiers are trained at the Fort Benning military base near Columbus, Ga. As of March 29, six confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been connected to Fort Benning. According to the Army, the patients were not part of training operations. Due to the crisis, some aspects of training that involve physical contact have been suspended, and physical distancing is being applied to exercises that will continue to occur. New medical screenings have been incorporated into the reception of the hundreds of soldiers that arrive every week to begin their training. All visitors are prohibited from attending graduation ceremonies, and recent graduates are being held at Fort Benning for the immediate future instead of being shipped to their new units.

They'll be the first forced to take the mark of the beast. In the Marines we had to take the vaccines. Without even being told. Luciferrace vaccine surely will be given to them and 5G will interact. They'll program them to shoot civilians and to forcibly remove the people who refuse the mark from thier homes into fema camps.

Man, people have already been getting a lot fatter, and now you throw covid into the mix. Mind you people are going to have to train themselves on their own a lot. Running on your own, just get all that damn cardio. Get out your bike. Keep up the good work boys and girls! We don't want anyone to just come and take our lands from us. Because many nations would love to.

We still got all of our training, but we had to wear masks during like, 80% of it
We wore our promasks on transport to avoid breathing in eachothers gross germs lmao

When I went to basic at Fort Jackson in February family day and graduation was still the same but in my 2nd or 3rd week our company commander told us our family wasn’t allowed on base for family day but we could see them for 90 minutes on graduation but then 3 weeks later they weren’t allowed on base at all, so I haven’t seen my family since I left for meps almost 7 months ago

I’m leaving august 17th to for lennord Wood. Does anyone know how the quarantine works for the 2 weeks. Do you get your phone during it. Or do they just keep you in a room alone in the barracks or a hotel.

Let privates teach Boot camp at this point, but don't you correct them if they do something wrong!!! Newly american soldiers have weakend the army. They lack discipline. Lack respect that was tought when I came in. Then when they are "pushed to get promoted" we have weak leaders and it goes downhill from there. I am witness to this. The typical "high speed" is about as frequent as seeing a unicorn.
