Preventing problems

FORT KNOX, KY—Advanced Camp 10th Regiment was issued equipment in order to complete their missions at Cadet Summer Training (CST).

Cadets arrived from all over the U.S. and it’s territories for CST. Many of these Cadets come with some of the necessary equipment for CST, while others are missing some or a majority of this equipment.

The Central Issues Facility (CIF) is where Cadets go to make sure that they have all of the proper and necessary equipment in order to be successful in their time here at CST.

“To accomplish the mission you need to be prepared. You can’t be safe and successful if you don’t have all your equipment or if it’s not in good working order,” explained Cadet Alyssa Allen, Illinois State University.

By ensuring that all the Cadets have the same equipment, it will help prevent problems as Cadets get deeper into their training here at CST.

“Not having the right gear can cause problems for you and other Cadets. Having the right gear keeps you and others safe and comfortable,” said Cadet Alyson Alvarado, University of Nevada—Reno.

Cadet Summer Training will bring 8,200 Cadets through Basic and Advanced Camp this summer on Fort Knox. These camps are designed to help challenge, grow and improve various skills and leadership qualities within the Cadets.
