Now that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for AIT, I'm kind of wondering what are some must haves when you deploy? I'm talking about gear related things that the Army does not issue. So far, the soldiers who already have their orders are all going to places that will be deploying within six months of them arriving. So I'm trying to get an idea of how much money I should start saving to get things for when I deploy. I'm pretty sure when I get to my duty station, they will be able to give me this information, but I'd like to start saving and looking around till then. I am currently in EOD school. So, although I'm not combat arms, I will be spending most of my time in the field. Thanks!
