* BCT is Basic Combat training

* AIT is Advanced Individual Training. The 13F course is six weeks for Fire Support Specialist at Ft. Sill. "The training course provides a working knowledge for skill level 1 Fire Support Specialist in the following areas: Map Reading, Land Navigation, Observed Fire Procedures, Digital Operations, Fire Support Team Vehicle Maintenance, and Laser Operations. Some of the topics covered in the course include methods of computing target locations, ammunition-handling techniques, gun, missile and rocket system operations, and artillery tactics. "

* BAC is Basic Airborne Course.
1st Battalion, 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment, Ft. Benning

The reason they return you to Benning is for the jump school. Different bases have different facilities. The skills you will learn in the 13F course are skills needed for airborne soldiers. Why would they spend the money to send you to school if you aren't going to be in such a unit?

If you do not wish to be airborne tell your AIT NCO and that can be stopped. It is totally voluntary, you can be in the BAC and stop when you want. It would be better to get it changed before going there. A person can terminate jump status when they want, thus not being in Airborne units anymore. It is a skill not a MOS.
