1- You will be bored out of your skull.
2- Signal Soldiers are a curious bunch. They're WISE(ass).
Since you won't be challenged by the classroom, use the opportunity to grow as an NCO. Your 'talons will be taken' when you sign in. You'll be told to leave the PVTs alone, that you're still expected to act like an NCO, but can't do most of the things an NCO would.
DO NOT start any relationships with MOS-I Soldiers. They told us if you saw one go down from a heart attack, "Drop a chemlight on them and go tell someone". Someone else said if we were driving by and there was a tornado "Don't let them in the car- yell at them to run faster!" ((Kidding but you get the point.))
-----Make sure you see ID at the clubs/bars. I wouldn't mess with them if they are SPC or below and the ID card isn't more than a year old. Some MOS-I at Gordon HAVE been there for a year or more..
Anyway, since you can't make your classmates do extra duty or pushups or anything else, you have to find a way to influence them to do the right thing in other ways. When I was teaching AIT, we had a SSG who could just clear his throat and the entire class would shutup and wait for him or the instructor to say something. He was firm and an example of proper Military courtesy, respect, and bearing- to the instructors (civilian or military) all the way down to the lowliest PVT. He took charge of whatever class he was in (cleanup at the end of the day, whatever) and left no room for the Soldiers to question his authority. (he was friendly with them but didn't get too "chummy" with them. PVTs are NEVER your battle-buddy.) He didn't make threats he would never go through with. "Knock it off now or we're going straight to your 1SG." (with a glaring eye that stopped that PV2 dead cold.)
On the other hand, your fellow MOS-T Soldiers need an example. Training is so tedious, long, boring, unchallenging, they start to whine about crap that wouldn't matter in the real world. NO, you don't really need to be in formation for 20min listening to whoever give their "war story" of flying over Iraq that one time. But when you start complaining too you're just becoming part of the Ft Gordon problem. Be the better NCO.
That being said, you'll find out pretty quick where to stay away from for fun. Go outside Augusta/ Ft. Gordon. Savannah is beautiful, less PVTs there too!
You'll be a little out of place when you get to your Signal assigment after training. Some will resent you for jumping over without the long helpdesk time they had to suffer through. Learn all you can, there's no shame in asking a PFC how to do something. You won't be doing the 10- level tasks all the time but you should learn how All of them are done so you can instruct and check up on the work.
Good luck- welcome to the Signal Corps!
