  1. Hi sorry but I have a question my husband leaves his BCT to go to AIT on Feb 12 2015 is AIT like bootcamp where he can’t call only write letters he is support is that maybe different

    1. It depends on the AIT. If it’s short, it will likely be similar to basic. If it’s longer, he’ll have more privileges as time goes on. You should at least get a few phone calls though.

  2. My daughter just enlisted with a 68s job can you tell me what they really do the description online is vague. If she deploys will she be front lines?

  3. Hi,
    I have a question. After AIT and a soldier wishes to visit family let’s say in Hawaii, will the army pay the round trip ticket for him to return to his duty station?
