OSUT is Basic Training with blocks of Specialized training according to MOS. For example, 19K (Tankers) go through OSUT. There are 8-9 weeks of common core tasks, and 5-6 weeks of tank specific learning.
\"Each man will charge forward to the very end, irrespective of the cost in casualties. There will be no halt and no retreat. There will only be the assault and the advance. - Gen Israel Tal Israel,1967\"

And Basic Training is supposed to be getting a little longer here in the near future, as in adding one more week for a total of 10. Of course, the Army has been fooling around for years with the length and subjects covered in Basic Training and not really changed it much.
If you get a choice, go for the OSUT option as that minimizes travel time and the overall duration. That is, get all of the beginning stuff out of the way all at once and move on to your unit, where the fun begins. 8)
I'd rather be a Soldier with a mule and mountain gun, than Knight of old, with spurs of gold, or Roman, Greek or Hun. For when there's trouble brewing, they always send for me!
