These are things that you will learn while at BMT. Learning
them before will help you. Some trainees have been known to "trade"
their knowledge with others. You can teach them their Creed, they can

The 341. 341= You'll
learn all about the AETC Form 341 in Air Force Basic Military Training.
This is the primary method the Air Education and Training Command uses
to document discrepancies and excellence for non-prior service recruits
in both basic training and Air Force Technical Schools.
At the top of the form are places for the recruit to enter his/her name,
rank, and their squadron/flight information. Recruits in basic training
and non-prior service airmen in technical schools must carry two
completed copies of this form with them at all times.
If a staff member (Basic Training MTI, Military Training Leader,
instructor, Airman leader, etc.) observes a discrepancy or observers you
doing something extremely excellent, they can "pull" a 341 from you.
Then they complete the bottom of the form, documenting what they
observed and returns the form to your squadron for further action
(disciplinary action, chewing out, pat-on-the-back, or whatever your
chain of command determines is appropriate).
