    in/at basic military training.

    Our family friend's son was at basic military training. He tells his mom:

    "When I was in/at BMT there was no time for me to think about anything else but the task at hand."

    Are both okay?

    To my ear, in is the more natural.

    Yes, I would accept either, but I prefer "in".
