diane is on a distinguished road
Default AZ

My son will be going to BC shortly and his rate will be an AZ. After A school is there any type of schedule they would follow? For example.....sea tour or on base first. Or is it just where they are needed as to where they will go? His recruiters told him A school is 8 weeks, but on the description of an AZ it states it is 96 days. Who is correct? Thanks
