Here are some tips before you go:

tip: Rule #1: Bring plenty of undergarments to get you through about a week, because (1); having time to do laundry is scarce, and (2); finding an open washing machine is just about as difficult.

Rule #2: If you want to have a short hair-cut, go to a salon BEFORE you leave. The PX salons are about as great as letting a 3-year old with a pair of scissors cut your hair. Please, get it cut beforehand or you will be forced to fix your hair with a pair of sewing scissors! (Trust me, this takes forever!)

Rule #3: Don't take any unneeded items with you. This will just cause a ton of grief for you. Leave all the make-up, radios, magazines, etc. AT HOME. Don't believe me? Wait until you get there. The Army DS aren't too keen on people who like to hide their contraband.

Rule #4: And last but not least, get into shape BEFORE you leave for Basic Training. This will help so much. The physical training starts as soon as you get there, not a week or two after. You want your body to be prepared, not put into shock.
