it's called. I leave Monday to go in Fort Dix. Althought I've deployed several times before this is the first time I've had to go to this. I know...it's kind of like sending Chuck Norris to a self defense class for beginners but I was told i still gotta do it.
Anyways...any insight folks can offer would be greatly appreciated. It's at Fort Dix, will it be cold or or will I be able to wear flip flops with my PT shorts and PT shirt while sipping a magarita at lunch time? .Oh...and it's the ten day course.

I went to the 30 day CST at Ft. Dix before I deployed in 2009. There was no leave and most days we had training all day. Also, you're under General Order One, so no margeritas or civilian clothes. Overall the training was good, even though I never went outside the wire. Ft. Dix is the best place to so because McGuire is next door and they have a Dunkin Donuts on the base.
As much as I could hate on the Army, I'd rather have my deployment training be with them compared to the Air Force version.....As the Air Force version just takes Army material and screws it up to make their own special training class
Granted, most Airmen shoot once every 2 years but these should be skills universal to the military.
Bruwin--here in Jersey, we are getting ready for another foot of snow, so, other than shower shoes, flip-flops are not needed. Although the training is on Ft Dix, it is run by the AF. I haven't been through the new 'whatever they are calling it today' training, but I am at McGuire and if you have any questions, ask away.
