    Advertisements
    *i would first like to mention that i am in no way complaining, i just think its odd* got a call from my hubby on saturday...actually a couple! he said they got to go to some 4th of july fair. they didnt do anything that day but relax or what not. he is at fort bennings, i have heard this is one of the toughest army basics! doesnt sound so tough to me if they got to go to a fair....

    he actually got to call me on sunday as well, i had to laugh cause in the span of not even 24 hours he lost his voice.... my poor love and i cant even send him anything to ease the pain.

    anyone else have/had people at fort bennings??

    DF got a few days to do some nice things. He wasn't at Benning, but I'm sure it is pretty similar. It seems normal for them to get a day or two durring the time to do something "fun". DF's was called "Free Day Away"

    each basic is different, and they do different things. Every thing is a learning experience, they are teaching them all kinds of things even at the 'fun special events' that being said... DH never had fun stuff like that in BCT it was nothing but work work work for him.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    They, most of the time, give holidays off. Especially major ones. And take them out in town and let them have a lil fun.
    Before I knew your name,
    Before I saw your chin and your nose,
    Before I counted your fingers and toes,
    I asked heaven for someone as wonderful as you,
    And every prayer and wish came true.
    I dreamed of you...

    i didnt think he would get to do anything on the 4th of july, i should have thought a little smarter on that one. im glad someone got a good laugh.....

    it was odd to have him talking to me for longer than 5 min. i went through the taco bell drive thru and asked him if he wanted anything on the phone, i forgot with the way he was talking he was in georgia *hits head*

    has anyone else eve done anything like that???

    My ex went to basic at Ft. Benning. He had a day where he went to a concert. I don't know any specifics about that and I threw out the letters so I can't even see if he said anything about it. All I know is that he bought like 5 mountain dews, 3 snickers bars and a bunch of other junk food that day. I was confused when he told me about it, too. He didn't go around any major holidays, I think. So.. who knows.

    Well it's not like they are sending them to hell. Benning is one of the toughest bases and it is for infantry. Just be glad your DH got a break for one day. It is 4th of July after all.
