In the fall of 1975, TRADOC directed that a test be conducted to determine the viability of a 1215 week OSUT concept. Six military occupational specialties MOSs were identified for testing MOSs 11D and 11E at Fort Knox, Kentucky MOS 12B at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri MOS 13B at Fort Sill, Oklahoma MOS 16P at Fort Bliss, Texas and MOS 36C at Fort Gordon, Georgia. In each case a special OSUT program was designed to produce an initial entry soldier capable of performing a minimal set of critical tasks that were provided by TRADOC. The Fort Bliss OSUT program was unique in that the OSUT cycle ran for 15 weeks rather than the 12 or 13 weeks employed at the other posts.
