(Fort Leonard Wood)–Word comes from Fort Leonard Wood that the U.S. Army has temporarily delayed the movement of future Soldiers to Basic Combat Training. Those who are currently in Basic Combat Training and Advanced Individual Training will continue training under the screening and monitoring guidelines established last month and will proceed to their next assignments upon graduation. This tactical pause will allow commands to ensure appropriate safety measures are in place and are operating effectively at training installations. The decision to pause the shipment of trainees to Basic Combat Training for two weeks will allow leaders to focus on setting conditions so movement can be conducted in a safe manner in the future.
U.S. Army recruiters will maintain close communication with future Soldiers during the delay to ensure they have current information regarding their Army careers.
