National School Breakfast Week on March, 2024: Reception Week at Basic Training?
National School Breakfast Week 2024. School Breakfast Programs Breakfast Changes Lives! No Kid Hungry Starts With Breakfast
Reception week at 30th AG (Adjutant General) Battalion, Fort Benning, GA will last about four days. When I was there in 2003, you came in, usually late at night, were issued a canteen and a duffel bag, and sent to sleep for a few hours. In the morning, you had breakfast and got your haircut. Next, you were sent down to get your PT uniform and buy a set of running shoes. After that comes a financial brief, lots of shots (ask for extra pennicillin :) ), and more drawing of stuff to take with you down range. I also had to take a PT test, but as far as I know, you are supposed to do that with your recruiter now, so I don't know if you have to do that still.
Depending on when you go, you may be there longer. CIF (Central Issue Facility) is not open weekends or holidays, so it might take a bit longer.

What happens during Tech School in the Air Force?
Air Force Technical Training, aka "tech school" is where you go once you graduate from Basic Military Training or "boot camp". The technical training in the United States Air Force is run by the "Community College of the Air Force" which is a regionally accredited (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) institute of higher learning by the Department of Education.
Depending on which "air force specialty code" (AFSC or your job) you have will determine which technical training location you go to. Each tech school will vary. However, to give you a general idea of what technical training was like for me, this was our schedule:
4:30AM- Wake up
5:00-6:15AM- Physical training
7:30AM-4:30PM- Class (to learn your job)
4:30-5:00PM - Formation- wait for National Anthem.
5:00PM- Released for the day until "curfew" which was 9:00PM(Sun-Thurs) and midnight on weekends.
On Wed. and Thurs. we didn't have phsyical training so you could sleep til 6:15AM.
Class is just like any other class, except it is the military so it isn't as "laid back" as college would be. For example, you can't just get up and leave or be disrespectful. You have to adhere to "customs and courtesies" like calling people "sir" or "ma'am" and standing up whenever an officer walks in the classroom.
Tech school is often divided into "phases" depending on the school. My tech school did not allow us to leave base on our "off time" until our second week of class, provided no one got in trouble. We also had to wear our uniforms on our free time during the first four weeks of tech school.
Hope this helps.
