  1. Hope you guys don't mind if ask one or two questions.

    1. How much leisure time do you have? Can you leave post for the weekends.

    2. How good are the facilities, especially sports wise.

    3. How long is the period in basic training where I can not bring in vitamins, is there a way to get passed this or do they have a army standard pharmacy on site.
  2. As far as I'm aware- You can't leave camp for the first 6 weeks. You don't really have time for sports during basic, it's a very busy 14 weeks.
  3. Correct my if I'm wrong m8 but I thought basic training 26 weeks
  4. Indeed Cornflakes, Geo is mixing up the trade basic training and the infantry basic. Infantry basic is 26 weeks or so.

  5. But you still don't leave for the first six, right?
