Commanders Welcome Letter Good afternoon RSP Soldiers! Thank you for your participation in the After Action Review (AAR) during May’s IDT, your honest feedback assists us with improving our program and ensures we provide the most effective training possible. Each month we will continue instruction and indoctrination into the Army culture to include: standards for appearance, military bearing, Armyspecific terminology, drill and ceremony (D&C), physical fitness and rank structure. Upon your arrival for training in May, expect the Cadre to enforce the standards that will be expected of you upon your arrival at Basic Combat Training (BCT) and throughout your military career. If you have questions about specific requirements for hair, facial hair, jewelry, nail length etc., do not hesitate to contact your Recruiter or RSP NCOIC, SFC Baker at (907) 428-7303 prior to drill. I am very proud of your commitment and dedication to this program and I encourage you to challenge yourselves every drill; when you’re ready to give up, dig down a little further than you did the month before, I guarantee you will discover a surprising reserve of strength and endurance. ARMY STRONG! “Challenges are gifts that force us to search for a new center of gravity. Don't fight them. Just find a different way to stand.” - Oprah Winfrey
