Packing List for Men for BCT

My Two Cents:
Running shoes, mostly (85-100%) black OR white. There's nothing like paying $75 for a $25 pair of Asics at 30th AG BTN (or equivalent). Make sure they are new! Your reception DS's will check the wear.

Every cycle there are recruits that for some reason decide not to bring a cellphone, or no charger. Bring your cellphone AND charger, no question. Plus your debit card.

Shower shoes can be bought for cheap at reception. Stamps and envelopes can also. Buying the smallest denomination calling card is also a good idea (some companies prefer to allow payphone use versus cellphone use), buying the smallest denomination will allow you to figure that out without wasting money.

There's more than that, but it should be on your packing list within your $2 army strong backpack. Those are just things I wish peopel told me.

Good Luck

You may take great care of your feet, but someone else there will not, and the last thing you want is to accidentally step in a puddle that has a jellyfish floating in it. Some top notch razors as well. Cheap ones stand a good chance of messing up your face as some days you just may have to shave in the cold.


Oh geeze, that's horrible. Hahaha. I'd fall over laughing if a buddy came up and told me he stepped in a pile of someone else's fishies.

there is a list in your enlistment packet of what to bring. do your own homework because you have folks in these rooms who give erroneous/outdated information. google: items to take to army basic training.
