The goal of the Recruit Sustainment Program (RSP) is to reduce the overall training pipeline loss rate. This is done by creating a strong foundation of training that allows the new recruit the ability to achieve success while attending BCT/AIT.

The Maine Army National Guard Recruit Sustainment Program prepares Army National Guard Warriors to meet head on the physical and mental road blocks you may face while in BCT/AIT. When you leave the RSP program for your training you will be:

  • Mentally prepared
  • Administratively correct
  • Physically fit

Success will be achieved by gaining knowledge, skills and attributes!

  • Knowledge: You will learn the chain of command, general orders, Army Values, and work as a team.
  • Skills: Basic rifle marksmanship, first aid, map orientation, land navigation, and so much more.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of the knowledge you will gain at RSP!
