How to Prepare for National Guard Basic Training - Recruit Sustainment Program
Recruit Sustainment Program (RSP) is a program of the United States Army National Guard designed to introduce new recruits to the fundamentals of the U.S. Army before they leave to Basic Combat Training (BCT) and Advanced Individual Training (AIT). The motto is "Paratus Preliator" (prepared warrior). The program is based on the three traits of combat (Mentally Prepared - Administratively Correct - Physically Fit) and seven traits of character (Loyalty - Duty - Respect - Selfless Service - Honor - Integrity - Personal Courage). And is the best program for recruits trying to learn more about what Basic Training (BCT) will be like.
In RSP there are five phases: Red phase (the person's first drill), White phase (from their second drill to the person's drill one month before they ship to BCT), Blue Phase (the person's last drill before they ship to BCT), Green phase (for the recruits who are split-shippers who have completed BCT and have come back to finish their senior year of high school or of college and are waiting to ship to AIT), and Gold phase (they are now soldiers and have completed both BCT and AIT; this is their last drill with RSP before they go to their home unit). While at RSP recruits do various training that will prepare them for BCT. Red, white, blue phase include but are not limited to the 1-1-1 PT test which consists of a 1-mile run, 1 minute for push-ups, and 1 minute for sit-up. Green phase includes but is not limited to the 2-2-2 PT tests which consists of a 2-mile run, 2 minutes for sit-ups, and 2 minutes for push-ups. Generally, RSP recruits undergo an Army Physical Fitness Test at every drill except for those in Gold Phase. Each PT test scores according to the soldier's gender and age. This must be passed before the recruit can ship to BCT.
