Just curious, can anyone give me a breakdown of what, say, a typical drill weekend would be for an Infantryman or MP of the Army National Guard (I'm getting ready to switch from Active Delayed entry to the Guard)?

Dammit I'm serious! I want to know I'm gonna get solider training each month and summer and on predeployment. I mean MOUT, react to contact drills, hard PT, etc.

I was an artillery officer in the Army National Guard for about 10 years. It was a long time ago. Some weekends we would stay at the armory and work on basic combat skills and admin, other weekends we would go to a larger base and do live fire exercises. Our 2 weeks in the summer, we would be in the woods most of the time training as close to real war conditions as we could simulate.

I like the sound of that. I hope to do lots of MOUT.

I was in field artillery. It's going to depend on your unit and the amount of funds availiable, not to mention the ones making the decisions.

You can bet you will get good training out of it though. The ARNG are not the drunken goofballs thet were there when fileboy was in, we can't afford to be.

Well from talking to a few Oregon ARNG soldiers (Infantry which is what I'm going to go into) and reading up a bit, we have a very good Brigade, and they really kick ass and hold their own when push comes to shove so I think I'll go for it, it looks to be just what I'm looking for. I hope to go to a drill with a friend who is 11 Bravo here soon though to see for myself.

Infantry huh? You really do want to get into the mix. Get ready to be deployed often. Hope you don't plan on raising a family. The Army is not family oriented imo.

p.s. infantrymen need to be in the best shape. You are going to be lugging around about 80lbs on your back for miles.

p.s.s. Grunts are looked upon as stupid too,lol.

How do you think I feel, Brian, I'm a glorified grunt, with a GT score about as high as you can get, and all these paper pushers try to treat me like I'm stupid.
