In accomplishing the transformation from civilian to citizen soldier, you have attained your primary purpose that I outlined to you in your first day of basic combat training--to become a disciplined, motivated soldier who is qualified with his basic weapon, physically conditioned and drilled in the fundamentals of soldiering. As you move on to advanced individual training, or an assignment with an active Army unit, the officers, drill sergeants and men of your cadre are proud of you. You have proven yourself in the trials and pressures of basic training. You have developed your mind and body, and accepted the challenge of soldiers before youg you have demon- strated that your generation has all the determination and ability necessary. To each of you I extend my appreciation and best wishes for your con- tinuing success in the years ahead. JOHN G. WAGGENER Major General, USA Com anding
