THE UNITED STATES ARMY TRAINING CENTER, ARMOR
OFFICE OF THE COMMANDING GENERAL
FORT KNOX, KENTUCKY
TO THE PARENTS OF THE GRADUATES OF BASIC TRAINING
In this era of nuclear weapons, guided missiles and other modern tools
of warfare, the most important element of National Defense remains the man
who employs these tools. Man's natural habitat is the earth, and in war, he
must eventually defeat his enemies by struggle on the ground. Hence the
necessity for well-trained soldiers of the United States Army.
In combat the soldier faces many unnatural, difficult and trying situ-
ations. It is, therefore, essential that every man be thoroughly disciplined,
technically qualified and physically, morally and mentally conditioned to
survive on the modern battlefield. This has been the purpose of the military
training you have received here at USATCA and will receive in the future.
How much benefit you receive from such training, of course, depends to
a considerable degree on how much you put into it. Here at the U. S. Army
Training Center, Armor, a well-rounded program has been instituted to pro-
vide you with every opportunity to develop the attributes of a good soldier.
We feel, too, that in many ways you will have developed a greater sense of
responsibility, a greater awareness of the world around you, and therefore,
will have become a better all-around citizen.
It is hoped that this book in the years to come will serve as a pleasant
reminder to you of this brief period of your military service in USATCA, -
and of the truth that soldiers are made, not born.

Basic Combat Training at the United States Army Training Center, Armor
is a team endeavor, requiring the maximum of both the new train-ee and
The main purpose of Basic Combat Training is the development of quali-
fied riflemen, whose individual talents will be supplemented later through
more specialized instruction.
Four training regiments are responsible for administering Basic Combat
Training to Regular Army, Selective Service and Reserve Forces Act.per-
sonnel at the USATCA. Carefully screened officers and non-commissioned
officers are entrusted with the mission of transforming young civilians into
well-trained and disciplined soldiers, prepared for efficient and honorable
A very intensive program, Basic Combat Training covers over thirty major
subjects--from military courtesy to squad tactics. Major emphasis, however,
is placed on mastery of the M-1 rifle, the basic weapon of the Infantry, More
than a week is devoted to handling, maintaining and firing the 9M pound
weapon, and the trainee finds that it is practically his constant companion
throughout the training cycle. When he completes Basic Combat Training,
the trainee realizes that his weapon is his "best friend" in combat.
In order to obtain the maximum from Basic Combat Training, a man's
physical condition must be continually improving. This is achieved through
daily participation in the "Army Daily Dozen"--a series of calisthenics designed
to harden muscles, slim waist lines and increase physical stamina. In addition
to intensive exercise, the trainee's physical condition is improved by good
food and a well-balanced diet.
Trainees also receive instruction in such varied subjects as bayonet drill,
first aid, interior guard duty, camouflage and concealment, mines and booby
traps, signal communications, field sanitation, intelligence, night vision,
battle indoctrination, map and compass reading.
They learn that combat, unlike a baseball game, is not postponed because
of darkness or inclement weather. Combat conditions are simulated whenever
possible and practicable, so that the men can be taught what to expect in the
event of national emergency.
During the seventh week, trainees live in the field as combat soldiers.
They "rough it" by sleeping in tents, eating outdoors from mess kits and
waging a constant battle against the elements, The trainees also participate
in mock battles against "Agressor" troops from their own company, who are
dressed in different uniforms and instructed to attack and harass when least
Approximately 220 men train together in a company, with each company
broken down into four platoons, that occupy four barracks. Each platoon is
directly commanded by a platoon sergeant, a well-trained and highly-qualified
soldier, who is usually a combat veteran of World War II or the Korean
conflict. He is with his men from reveille to retreat and often during the
evening hours for informal and instructive "bull sessions."
The platoon is also broken down--into four squads of about a dozen men.
Squads are directed to fellow trainees with unusually high aptitudes and
The squad and platoon systems instill in the trainees a pride in each of
these units and there is always spirited competition for the designation of
"best squad" or "best platoon." Trainees become endowed with a formidable
esprit de corps and a sense of unit identification.
Instruction in the various Basic Combat Training subjects is given by
specially trained officers and non-commissioned officers from regimental in-
structor groups. An instructor group is similar in structure to a college or
university factulty, with each "professor" a specialist in his field, who also
has the ability to pass on his knowledge to the trainees. In addition to formal
instruction from regimental personnel, the trainees receive individual in-
struction from their platoon sergeants. Contrary to popular belief, the Army
isn't an impersonal organization, Each trainee at USATCA receives all the
individual attention necessary for the development of a competent soldier.
While Basic Combat Training is necessarily intensive, because there is
a great deal to be taught in a comparatively short period, the men receive an
ample amount of free time for recreation. Fort Knox is a large city with
excellent recreational facilities. Men can participate in any sport, or read
books from well-stocked libraries. There are large swimming pools and base-
ball and football fields near company areas. Convenient service clubs provide
the trainees with excellent facilities for letter-writing, reading, listening to
music and just plain talking. Weekly dances and shows are also held in
each service club and the latest movies are shown at the post theatres.
Trainees also visit nearby Louisville, a large, progressive community with
impressive recreational and cultural facilities. Tours are also arranged to
Mammoth Cave, the birthplaces of Abraham Lincoln and Daniel Boone,
Stephen Foster's "Old Kentucky Home" and the beau-tiful Bluegrass Region.
The trainee's spiritual life is highly stressed during Basic Combat Training
at USATCA. Character guidance lectures from Training Center chaplains are
an integral part of the training curriculum and the men are encouraged to
attend services of their choice at one of the many post chapels. The chaplains
are also available for individual discussions with the men at any time.
Thus, the Basic Combat Training program at USATCA may be considered
two-fold. While the development of a well-trained soldier is naturally stressed,
the development of a man is not forgotten. Upon completion of Basic Combat
Training, the trainee is not only a trained riflemang he is also a worthy
citizen of his community and his nation.

PROFICIENCY TESTS - How well did the trainee
learn it- all? Final proficiency tests find the answers. From
compass reading to first aid, the trainee must prove
himself completely proficient - and fully worthy of
graduation. Every "station" along the test route provides
another measure of progress. And the trainee must score
high all the way to convince the Army he's ready for
bigger assignments. It's a tough test, and those who pass
it have jumped a major Army hurdle. i
