Welcome to ArmyBasic.org.
The intent of this web site is to help people who have joined or are thinking about joining the United States Army, United States Army Reserve, or National Guard. This is more than a decision - it is a lifestyle, and one that should be taken seriously.
We have many people who are veterans, current military, drill sergeants and recruiters that participate in the forums and can answer any questions that you might have to help you with your decision. In addition, information on every BCT (Basic Combat Training) Post is included with a place for you to ask questions.
Remember the best soldier is the one that takes the time to prepare him/herself to do the best they can in every situation, so take some time and start here. We hope this site will help you through the Army enlistment process.
Registration is required. After you register, please post an introductory statement about yourself in the appropriate forums, Current Military, DEP (Future Military ) or Family Members. Be sure to read the rules for this site. If you are experiencing technical issues such as problems with the registration process or viewing information, see the information below, if that does not fix it, contact the administrator.

Only handful of buildings are still functional. A makeshift hospital, school and restaurant help form a town square.|
