Adequate water, rail facilities, and a Carolina climate together lent themselves to Army needs of the time, and on September 4-, 1918, Camp Bragg, North Carolina, emerged as a field artillery site. The Camp was named in honor of General Braxton Bragg, former artillery officer, North Carolinian, and a General in the Army of the Confederate States. The first years were undistinguished, and Camp Bragg fell perilously close to abandonment before gaining a foun- dation in February 1922. The Field Artillery Board moved to Camp Bragg, and that November the installation became Fort Bragg. Signs of permanency soon began to appear. Streets and sidewalks were built. Lawns and trees were planted. Per- manent buildings were erected. Bi-planes appeared on the grass landing strip at Pope Field with more and more fre- quency. More importantly, men and units began to arrive. The Fort grew slowly during the peacetime years, inching to a total of 5,400 men by the summer of 1940. As the country entered World War II, Fort Bragg func- tioned as a replacement training center and a training site. The Field Artillery Training Center became the largest cen- ter of its kind in the country, and fighting divisions called Bragg their home. However, 1942 brought the true indication of Fort Bragg's future, for in that year the first of the air- borne units trained at Bragg in preparation for combat. With Pope F ield-its runways paved-providing the aircraft and an abundance of rugged terrain and sandy soil, Fort Bragg was an ideal post for parachute assault operations. All five of our World War II Airborne Divisions-the 82nd, 101st, 11th, 17th and 13th-trained in the Fort Bragg-Camp Mackall area. Truly Bragg was the first Home of the Air- borne. The major units now on the Post have assembled here since World War II. The 82nd arrived in 1946. In 1951, XVIII Airborne Corps was reactivated at Fort Bragg with operational control of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Di- visions, the same two elite divisions it started with in World War II. The Psychological Warfare Center moved here in 1952, and has since grown into the world-famous ,Iohn F. Kennedy Center for Special Warfare fAirbornel. The 12th Support Brigade was assigned to XVIII Airborne Corps in 1962 as the 5th Logistical Command. The most recent ad- dition is the U. S. Army Training Center, activated in the summer of 1966. Together with Pope Air Force Base and its 464th Troop Carrier Wing, the Bragg-Pope complex has become one of the most important military areas in the world. Fort Bragg today is far removed from its modest begin- nings in 1918. The Post ranks as the fifth largest city in North Carolina. The reservation comprises over 135,000 acres, with a military population of roughly 50,000, depend- ents number about 5l,000, civilian workers over 5,000, and retired personnel and their families about 10,000. Thus, all told, Fort Bragg serves approximately 120,000 people. Almost everything about Fort Bragg is big. The Post is one of the largest revenue producing industries in North Carolina, Womack Army Hospital is the busiest Army Hos- pital in the United States, barring but one-Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D. C., the Boy Scout organization here is the largest at any armed forces installation. But Fort Braggls major concern has always been the individual sol- dier, the man who finds his pride in being part of a team and part of a larger community, a community spreading from surrounding Fayetteville and Spring Lake throughout the Hfty states. This is the man who has made Fort Bragg what it is todayAa great installation in a great state of a great country-g'Fort Bragg, Home of the Airborne." U. S. ARMY TRAINING CENTER 'uhm q 1 x ...un Training Center Headquarters U. S. ARMY TRAINING CENTER, INF ANTRY The United States Army Training Center, Infantry, was established at Fort Bragg by General Order Number 161, Third United States Army, on 2 May 1966. Its essential mission is the reception, processing and training of Basic Combat Trainees. Commanded by Colonel Thomas R. Cross, the center is staffed by more than 300 officers and 2,100 non-commis- sioned officers and enlisted personnel, especially selected for the important task of molding inexperienced recruits into combat-ready soldiers. The first stop for a new enlistee or inductee at the United States Army Training Center is the Reception Station which is responsible for his initial processing, examination, and the provision of necessary clothing and supplies. Upon leaving the Reception Station, the man meets his Drill Sergeant and becomes a member of one of the 50 companies which comprise the two brigades of the Training Center. With his company, the trainee enters the eight-week-long Basic Combat Training Cycle, which consists of 352 hours of instruction, practice, practical exercise and testing in 27 subjects. This extensive program is designed to transform him into a proficient military athlete, an expert marksman, and most important, a self-reliant, mature soldier, who is able to act, not only on the orders of others, but on his own initiative. gNT OF me AX fy, DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY x g? fgjif 56 S HEADQUARTERS, UNITED STATES ARMY TRAINING CENTER, INFANTRY f ' 2, 9 FORT BRAGG, NORTH CAROLINA 28307 .r ff 5.,iif63 'Nng of F' TO THE wIvEs AND PARENTS OF FORT BRAGGQS. BASIC TRAINEEST I wish to extend my sincere congratulations to you, and your son or husband, upon completion of his basic training. His first step here, becoming a soldier, now leads to further schooling and fruitful development as a proficient member of the United States Army. From Fort Bragg, he may travel to a variety of military ins- tallations in the United States for Officer's Candidate School, Advanced Individual Training, or actual Non-the-jobu training in one of the Armfis occupational specialities. E He may be stationed anywhere in the world, serving the prin- ciples of liberty and freedom that Americans have defended for two centuries. we are proud of him. waits! THOMAS R. CROSS h Colonel, Infantry Commanding What is a Drill Sergeant? He is the cautioning voice, the helpful hand, the watchful eye that guides the new trainee through eight weeks of strenuous Army training. He may have gained his knowledge in Korea or Viet Nam. ' It is properly his job to guide, instruct, and encourage the young men who are training to become soldiers. He is a seasoned graduate of the Drill Sergeants School-a course which reviews all the "basics,' of basic training in a curriculum much more strenuous than basic training. He wears the distinctive mark of a graduate of that school-the World War I-type campaign hat. More than 1,000 basic combat trainees enter and leave Fort Bragg's Army Training Center each week, but the Drill Sergeant remains to fulfill his mission of developing combat-ready soldiers. To the hundreds of Drill Sergeants at USATCI and the proud soldiers they have produced, this book is dedicated. I uw... , ,, , + ,iw "1 LL' . 1 E Maww -M M I M 1.

Here, the transition from civilian to military life becomes a reality. At the reception station, a recruit spends three days pro- cessing into the Army. The permanent party staff of oliicers and enlisted personnel process the paperwork necessary to get a man officially into the Army and on the payroll. The task of processing a man into the Army is a massive one. After an initial orientation, the young soldier receives a complete issue of clothing, a physical and dental exami- nation, medical immunization shots, identification card, udog tags", and a partial pay to see him through until his first regular paycheck. He is also tested and interviewed to find the most ap- propriate occupation for him in the Army. The Reception Station issues approximately 736 sets of fatigues, 368 pairs of combat boots, and 920 articles of headgear on an average Working day. It is also here, that a man begins to understand the Army way of life and the discipline that Will become an important factor in his next eight weeksvbasic combat training. At his training company, he will receive intensive in- struction and training in the fundamentals of soldiering. He learns military skills, skills which he might have to apply in the defense of his country and life. mmm gens-an www M949 'kai-S. , ' JL-, ,Q R+ .. sq? kk "Q: .ai-SW 1 5 , fyf, 1 fzff Vw Ligjlgfg , , Il f ,qv v 1 X 1 ,J mf fi f few f f , Lg..

Physical Training The phrase aproficient military athlete" is heard many times by trainees throughout their basic combat training cycle. Physical training is stressed throughout training and emphasis is placed on complete physical development. Each trainee must be developed physically to be capable and ready to perform his assigned mission. Throughout the training cycle, physical training is given every day. A trainee is rated on his physical fitness by the Physical Combat Proficiency Test QPCPTD. This test is taken twice during the training cycle. The Hrst test is a udry-run" to orient the individual sol- dier. During the second test, at the end of the cycle, a trainee is scored on his physical prohciency. A score of 300 from a possible 500 points is the standard score he must obtain to meet minimum physical fitness standards. Dismounted Drill To operate successfully, the Army requires precision teamwork. Teamwork from the largest battalion down to the smallest squad. Teamwork that molds a group of indi- viduals into a single block of force, moving and thinking as one. The basis for this teamwork, this esprit de corps, be- gins on the drill field, where the basic fundamentals of Dismounted Drill is taught to basic combat trainees. On the drill Held, the new soldier learns that the Army is not composed of individuals working as separate units, but rather a group of soldiers working as one single unit. It is here that he learns to respond immediately to a given command, and to function as a team member. The trainee learns that there can be no orderly move- ment of men or units without the united effort of the squad or platoon. He learns what his fellow soldiers can do, and his confidence grows in himself and his unit. Drill begins from the minute the trainee enters the Army. Almost immediately he is taught basic foot movements, so that by the time he leaves the reception station for his basic training company, he already has a working knowledge of drill. ln his basic training company, the trainee becomes ac- quainted with more advanced movements and precision drill. That first time, when every left foot in the company hits the ground simultaneously, the trainee realizes the importance of receiving a good basic knowledge of the Army's oldest instruction-Drill. ws it N Rex I H? anual of Arms The manual of arms is a portion of drill and ceremonies instruction. During this phase of training, the soldier must complete marching movements with his riHe. Further in- struction involves precise movements with the rifle-com- plicated at first but easier with practice. ,,,.,.1a, 1 1 n '45ii3Ni..?5 x i - - b ,, Q .J yo ,A nz 'gi 'F' 5 S N N , 1' J' SN x I sk ,3 2 s 4 '23 O ur L . ., ' .

This is the time for a trainee to take his family to the picnic area on a Sunday afternoon, visit a unit entertainment center, have a coke and a hamburger at the snack bar or just stay in and Write a letter home. Free time comes "few and far hetweenw during a busy eight week training schedule-but every moment is pure pleasure. Ulllhinlg KP Every basic trainee learns that since an army moves on its stomach, one of the most important, and possibly the most unglamorous, duties in Kitchen Police, KP, as it is known in its abbreviated form, consists of assisting the mess personnel in their daily duty: feeding a company of hungry soldiers. 1 ,, .A XE' The Training Center, on an average day, uses approxi- mately 2,300 dozen eggs for the morning meal among its 58 mess halls. That's a lot of sticky cutlery to Wash at six in the morning. A normal roast beef dinner takes up about 41,784 pounds of beef. More dirty trays and cutlery to clean. But, when the last fork of the day has been placed in its correct receptacle, the KP can look around the shining mess hall with a feeling of pride, thinking, "I helped feed those guys today." Nun.

Every man must strive for perfection in executing the various bayonet drill movements. Aggressiveness and en- thusiasm are emphasized to train the soldier to respond im- mediately to all commands. He learns that during battle, he may have to depend on his ability to use the bayonet effectively to save his life. W, -NN ML S 'Wx S, 9? , if 'ws if , . ,WW Y?

And during Basic Combat Training, each man learns how to use one of the oldest and most effective weapons: his body. Hand to Hand Combat enables him to attack or defend himself against an armed or unarmed opponent. During this training, he rnust develop speed, accuracy, and balance. He learns the vulnerable parts of the human body so he can concentrate his attack where it will do the most damage, while protecting the same points on his own body. He learns a dozen different methods of attack and the proper way to defend himself against each method. But above all, in Hand to Hand Combat, a man develops confidence. Confidence that he can enter into combat with his only weapon, his body . . . and emerge victorious. Z4 bstaele Course This course is designed to test the physical and mental preparedness of the new soldier. Here, the trainee must move over, under, around and through a number of obsta- cles as swiftly as possible while carrying his rifle and field gear. Individual Weapons Qualification Individual Weapons Qualification teaches the trainee the operation, care, and maintenance of his closest friendgthe rifie. It develops in the soldier the confidence, will, knowl- edge and skill required to use his rifle effectively in a combat situation. In the opening phases of Weapons Qualification, the trainee is instructed in the history and development of the rifle, from the earliest blunderbusses to the modern day weapons. He is taught the various methods of maintenance, assembly, and disassembly. Then comes marksmanship training. After zeroing his individual weapon, the trainee begins to fire at pop-up targets on a combat range. This gives him the confidence in himself to be able to detect a target, then score a hit almost im- rnediately. He learns the different shooting positions, prone, standing, kneeling, all the ways to give him a better view of the target. Finally, he Hnds out exactly how much knowledge of marksmanship he has absorbed when he fires for record at the termination of his Individual Weapons Qualification instruction. fi.

A combat soldier must have a keen eye and an excellent ear to detect these factors. How can you fire at an enemy you cannot see? This is where target detection plays an important role in basic com- bat training. In target detection training, the utargetsi' are lightly camouflaged soldiers set in a natural surrounding. The trainees search for such targets, developing a skill for lo- cating and marking the uenemyw. Practical exercises are performed in this phase of rifle marksmanship and a trainee gradually learns that an empty battlefield may not be empty at all. Finally, the trainee is ready for record fire, where he utilizes techniques learned in battlefield firing and target detection. ,WW 27 am We 5, ,,,, M z , f - Field Firing During Field Firing, the men learn to detect and hit tar- gets under conditions that might be encountered in actual combat. They learn about the effects of wind on a bullet and how to compensate for these effects. Since a rifleman must be able to see a target 'before he can hit it, training in target detection is a major part of Field Firing. A great deal of time is spent in practicing detection of single and multiple, hidden, and moving targets. When the men spot a target, they must then make an accurate estimate of the distance to that target. They must be able to do this instantly with constant accuracy, for on the field of combat they would be engaging targets at varying ranges and must know how to compen- sate for the distance. They learn how to move safely with a loaded weapon and quickly take up firing positions when brought under attack. Every detail is covered, from rapid reloading procedures to personal camouflage skills, to give each man the ability to go into combat, confident that he knows his weapon and has the skill to use it to his best advantage. ar-MQ' YMMJ, 3, X X fu-f. .'k. ,sw Cm., in Record Firing Record Firing is the culmination of all the training, in- struction and practice the trainee receives with his individual weapon. His training has covered everything from the history and development of the rifle to practice in rapid reloading pro- cedures. But during record firing, he is tested in the basic reason for all this individual weapons training . . . his skill in locating and hitting a target. He reviews procedures for detecting targets by sight and sound. He performs some linal exercises in marking and estimating the range to targets. Then he moves out on the range with his fellow soldiers to Hre for record. Using the methods he learned in lndividual Tactical Train- ing, he advances toward his targets. From the various po- sitions he learned during Field Firing, he fires at single stationary and both single and multiple moving targets. His efforts during record firing earn him a qualification badge, but more important, this training gives him the ability to detect and destroy a real target if the need ever arises. ,afar n' r in w'lV,,,4 ri.-1' f, , ! pw wr ' -sz ' ' ,wr , 'nf W Nia: 5 Q Q s it at 1'-f Xmas, 5 is vp, X . ,gf GR l-14 W + , - fa, We .,.q.,gewWL 153551 439 425 ,f .1 '42 2 M wM,,, as 124.

He learns about the duties of a sentinel of the relief, the proper method of walking his post, challenging anyone on or near his post, and allowing no one to pass Without proper authority. He realizes the traditions and ceremonies that lie behind the guard mount, and inspection: the exact way of posting and relieving sentinels of the guard, the use of sign and countersign, and every tried and trusted method of protect- ing the lives and property which he guards. - -a'e' I , x , 1 Mwst! 5352533 Q-my-rxxtiimikg X ix?

Through a series of classes, demonstrations, and periods of practical exercise, the trainees are thoroughly versed in the use of various medical devices, ranging from a bandage for a cut, to a splint for a broken limb. The trainee is taught to treat for shock, bleeding, snake or insect bites, and many other injuries he may en- counter. He also receives instruction on some of the more com- plicated injuries, including initial treatment for chest and stomach Wounds. During these First Aid instruction periods, the trainee gains knowledge that will not only be useful to him in times of combat, but for the rest of his life. CBR "Gas! Gas! Gas 1" Within the span of nine seconds, a basic combat trainee must put on his M17 Protective Mask to protect himself against a gas attack. The significance of Chemical, Biological and Radio- logical Warfare KCBRD is pointed out to all trainees during the training cycle. A rigorous training program is conducted to teach re- cruits the basic protective measures for survival in a chemical, biological or nuclear attack with a minimum reduction in combat effectiveness. They learn to recognize the various forms of a CBR attack and the means of protection against the effects of such an attack. A soldier's primary protection against the effects of a CBR attack is the M17 Protective Mask. Intensive in- struction in disassembling and clearing the mask is conducted. An actual exposure to a chemical agent high- lights CBR training. During the fifth week of training all trainees partici- pate in a three phase gas chamber exercise which teaches them never to forget the basic protective procedures used in a CBR situation. Z 'ar Land Navigation Land Navigation is designed to introduce the basic com- bat trainee with the methods of recognition and navigation over unknown terrain. The first period of instruction is used to familiarize the trainee with military maps and their use. The second period consists of a practical exercise designed to teach the trainee to use the Lensatic Compass and pacing techniques. A' x w ,J Bayonet Assault Course The Bayonet Assault Course tests the traineeis grasp of the bayonet instruction he has received. During the course, he shows his skill under simulated combat con- ditions. The course is equipped with various obstacles and targets including a vertical wall, horizontal and ver- tical butt stroke targets, parry left and right targets, double apron fence and barbed wire tunnel. The targets vary from thrust targets to parry and thrust targets, giv- ing the trainee plenty of choice in which method to use. Hand Grenades During the sixth week of Basic Combat Training, the men learn how to use the hand grenade for close combat. But before a man can use any Weapon effectively, he must develop a respect for its capabilities. This is an important factor in the use of the hand grenade. The men are shown what damage can be caused by the weapon and how to protect themselves from its effects. Then they are introduced to the different types of hand grenades used by the Army today and are taught exactly how they function. They go through many udry runs,', using different throwing positions and techniques. The climax of this training comes when the men test their skill and accu- racy in hitting targets 35 meters away with live hand grenades. Throughout their training in the use of the hand gre- nade, the men develop an appreciation for the effects of this weapon from the strict safety guidelines followed by their instructors. Y un msnu 'mummy ' sf -N-zur-WM A---fs-me -s,.r....:..s if 9 y 'Q i Qgf54iQQl t 9.5 wifi .qw uick Kill A new concept in rifle marksmanship has been incor- porated into the Basic Combat Training cycle. Termed 4'Quick Killw, this new training method is designed to teach the trainees instinct shooting. Air rifles, or 4'BB,' guns, are used during the first phase of instruction to teach the men to lire quickly without taking the time to aim. ln the second phase, the trainees graduate to the rifle. The sights are taped to prevent their use so the weapon must be fired by instinct. After a little prac- tice, the trainees are able to detect and hit a target within two seconds. Finally, their newly acquired skills are put to practical use. The trainee moves down a simulated jungle trail and Iiniagfs lpop-up targets with a "BBW gun using the 'cQuick 1 ec nique. 5. if 1 if X, it A Ks it 5 H. .

' 5,3 ,f L S Marches When a basic combat trainee is learning to become a soldier, he no longer walks-he marches. He marches over every type of terrain imaginable, to and from train- ing areas, and to bivouac in his seventh week of training. The objectives of this type of training are to teach the individual soldier the principles of march discipline, march hygiene, preparation and adjustment of packs, and to provide a series of practical exercises in cross- country marches. Various types of foot marches are executed throughout bivouac. This develops a unit which will be capable of marching to its destination and arriving in a Fit condition to carry out its assigned mission. Trainees test their training by experience and learn a final lesson: to cherish a most precious piece of equip- ment, their feet. 2 5 ? 2 3 K f Q 1 Q .

They practice individual protective measures, using ter- rain features to best advantage for cover and concealment. They also learn how to use the terrain to conceal their movement. Much of the instruction deals with the proper handling of prisoners of War and captured documents and material. During actual combat, a great deal of useful informa- tion about the enemy may be passed on by the men on the front lines, so the trainees study the principles of com- bat intelligence, counter intelligence and security. Finally, they learn the proper procedures for observa- tion, search of terrain and establishing defensive positions. They learn how to apply these principles during both daylight and darkness, so regardless of the time of day or wether conditions, they will see the enemy without being seen themselves. ,Mm .., ,,,, - Wi , ,, WU ,av ,WM M., ..,,,l,tMf,.1.. iq..

The negotiation of the course is a period of instruction included in the physical Contact-conlidence training. Its purpose is to create a spirit of daring rather than an event to exercise and condition the men. However, thc running of the course is strenuous enough to be con- sidered an excellent physical conditioner. A trainee is not scored on his performance, because the scope of instruction is designed to condition a manis mind to battle and the elfects it has on a combat soldier. , 1 4 XQMM1, 0 H, K. im! fp , -1 J 'A 'L fy 4.3 ,fe 1 a , N if a J., 44 V Y 'i we 4 E ,- 4 iw ff -f I i I Q fm QW, -.ay ASS i Q Q by i .,,L V A xg - 1 ,,- ,,,.. , .WW .'

On the Close Combat Course, the men put to use all the skills they have learned throughout Field Firing and Individual Tactical Training in advancing toward the enemy while covering their assigned areas with accurate rifle Ere and shifting their fire automatically to closer or more critical targets. To deny the enemy the effective use of ambush, the men learn to employ quick and accurate fire against surprise targets while moving through broken terrain. Each man learns to coordinate his actions with the rest of the men in his unit . . . and the group of individ- uals become an effective team, able to engage any enemy in any type of terrain.

K ww., w',iw,w X PCPT Becoming a proficient military athlete is a necessary step on the road to becoming an elhcient soldier. The Army judges a soldierls athletic proficiency by his score on the Physical Combat Proficiency Test fPCPTJ. Split into five sections, the PCPT is encountered by basic trainees twice during the training cycle. The first time is a udry run,w conducted to orient the trainees to the Army's standard of physical fitness. The second time, occurring during the latter half of the training cycle, counts towards the trainee's success- ful completion of basic combat training. The five parts of the PCPT are: 11-0-yard low crawlg run, dodge, and jumpg horizontal ladder, 150 yd. man carry, and the one mile run. Each section of the PCPT is worth 100 points to the participant, but lie must score 300 out of a possible 500 points. my , W ' I' f ' , W d ,, , M-:M Proficiency Test The end of cycle proficiency test provides the com- mander with a comprehensive evaluation of the military abilities of each trainee. Made up of eight separate parts, the test identifies those trainees qualified to progress to advanced individual training and those requiring addi- tional training through recycling. 1 gf 4 1 I ,, A 4 V f , I-J.
