I have a character who's just graduated from high school and is going to a university in the Northeastern USA. The Army is paying for his education, so he'll be doing the ROTC program while there, with the intention of going into the Army as a career after graduation. I need to know how long he'll be gone over the summer for basic training. I've gotten several contradictory answers, and I'm not sure what exactly would apply to him and what wouldn't. (If it makes any difference, his goal is to fly helicopters once he's in.) It's important to the plot (and the heroine of the story!) to know precisly how long he'll be gone.
Thanks in advance!
