Re: military info???



Couple questions I’m hoping someone might be able to answer, or have a website reference.

1. When a soldier finishes basic training what is his rank? Private?

2. How long is a “usual” tour of duty in Iraq? (I am aware that recent circumstances make this hard to answer–just need ave.)

3. How long is the average leave between tours?

4. Is it true that some people are on their fourth tour?

5. How many hours would a flight from Charleston SC to Afghanistan take (rough estimate)? Does it go through Germany or someplace?

Thanks. I called my local recruiting station but they only wanted to sign me up–not answer any questions.
