eww....Ft. Sill..

best advice for basic: Shut up, stand up straight, don't talk unless spoken to, do as you're told, and do not stick out.

Not any more than any other military installation that isn't Navy or Air Force, especially Navy, due to the nature of the beast they usually have to be on the ocean and near heavily populated areas, while the Army and Marines get huge areas of crap country.
I'm sure you can get more helpfull information from one of our many American redlegs than you can from a couple of cadidiots though.

Fort Sill...aw its not exactly the garden spot of oklahoma...but its not bad either.

Fort Sill is near the town of Lawton Oklahoma. Its about 85 miles southwest of Oklahoma City Ok. The town is very well fixed for most stores and items you'd expect from a town with a population of around 50,000.

heres the link to Fort Sill: http://sill-www.army.mil/

The top thing I would reccomend: Sun screen, and a good pair of legal sun glasses, if you are allowed to have them. The area you are going to has more sunlight that you can possibly imagine.

PM me if you need more information. Good luck with your assignment

As far as your MOS, I would say you can expect to mostly do artillery/mortar calls for fire as well as some recon.

There is a difference between Ranger FISTers and big Army FISTers, so my perspective is a bit limited in providing any more information than what I wrote above.

What are you confused about? If you are a bit more specific, it would be helpful in explaining.
