Ha, we didn't have to do fire watch. We did get up early though. A 16 hour day is a little too much for me. But I'm working on it.

In regards to sleep, it all depends.  When I was a basic many moons ago, we were up at 0415.  Understand though, when I first did basic, that was allowed, in addition to pushups on the spot, bunks thrown out wndows, etc--the good old days!  I have been to 6 encampments now, and now we tend to do 5 am.  In regards to CQ it depends.  Last year I was the Squadron Commander for encampment, and I was responsible for making all the scheduling for CQ.  Basically, all I did was but 2 flights per night, and switch them on and off, A&D B&C etc.  Very random.  Well, I am going to get off so I can get back to work.

Il Spring is usually 530-545 for staff, 0600 for basics, with a hard lights out at 2200 for basics and 2230 for everyone - if its not done by 2230, it waits until tomorrow.

As this is a weekend encampment, sleep deprivation becomes a safety issue on the ride home.

If you want to take a look at a typical IL Spring Schedule, it is online here:

BTW - I am >DYING< to know what the obvious lie was...

Hmm.  0415?  What encampment did you go to?  Somehow I don't think so.

When I did my basic we did not get up that early. 

If I am thinking of the encampment your talking about you must remember that there are things that occured there which never should of happened.  There is no way to justify those things, its just they should of never happened.

I woke up at 4:00 every morning (don't ask me why) even though we weren't officially gotten up until a very late 5:30.   ::)

Lights out at 1900?? Its still light out in the summer until at least 2030 usually.  Hope the cadets had blinds in their rooms  :o   I seem to recall getting up at around 0445 when I went to encampment and lights out around 2200.  CQ wasn't bad, just rather boring, if I recall every flight did CQ since it was a rather large ANG base that we had pretty much all of for our encampment.

Edit: Spelling and more spelling

Who usually does the fire watch?

Cadets attending their basic encampment(s) ie: Non-staff cadets... You will usually be detailed by and report to a cadet staff member for fire watch or CQ.

At CTWG Encampment basics usually do CQ but on the last real day...cadet staff does it. Sounds bad but depending on who you are with...it's actually pretty fun.

Just as a matter of general interest, the traditional term expressing the hour of reveille in military time is 'oh-dark-thirty'!
