      I've heard of it. My dad trained there for Vietman. He calls it Fort Lost in the Woods LOL. He's kind of biased about Missouri though. I didn't like southwest missouri when I lived there for a short time. It was just too slow for this city boy. That place is more in the Ozarks though and I'm sure there's some good things to do like fishing and stuff if your into that. Branson shouldn't be too far away for there I don't think.

            I spent 2 years stationed at Leonard Wood. It will be warmer than Vermont. I would say mid-50s to mid-60s during the day. And down around freezing during the night. As a basic/ait student, you will kinda be limited to where you can go and what you can do. If possible stay away from the bars in St. Roberts, which is right outside the gate, cause there is nothing but trouble in them. The nearest decent size city is Springfield at just over an hour. St. Louis is only about an hour and half away.

            Anyother questions, just ask away

              I was there for boot last year (oct-jan) and then for 2 weeks of BFT(May). It's training so it sucks no matter where you are. Just keep your head up and remember why you are doing it. Weather in the winter was a nice bitter cold, in May it was nice and muggy humid hot, ticks everywhere. Ticks like you wouldn;t believe.
              As far as freedoms it will break down by company, platoon, and individual drill sgt. Some are old school some are for the 'new' Army. Just do what you are told and keep your buddies in line and you should survive.
