FORT SILL, Okla. (AP) - Soldiers who come to Fort Sill for basic training are going to benefit from a new reception complex.

Post officials say new Army recruits typically took as long as a week or more to receive things like uniforms, haircuts and medical checks at aged buildings across the post.

But the 95th Adjutant General Battalion is moving Friday to a new reception complex that will house dental and medical facilities, along with all the other services for new recruits.

Battalion officials say their goal is to get new recruits to their basic training groups within three days.
