The CRC barracks at Ft Benning

My home for a week

My little piece of heaven =)

All packed and ready to go

One thing you quickly learn when you work with the military is that everything is reduced to acronyms. When I was in GA for training before deploying, I was technically at CRC, which stands for CONUS (which stands for Continental United States) Replacement Center. They start to acclimate you to life with the Army. You have formations at 0500 (everything is in military time), you eat at the DFAC (Dining Facility), you are part of CRC Alpha Company, you do T-SIRT (Theater Specific Individual Readiness Training), you stay in the barracks, etc. Overall it is a pretty smooth process, but there is also LOTS of hurry and wait!
