Everything you will need will be provided by your service when you get there. Only pack what it will take to get you to your duty station- one change of clothes, a wristwatch and a basic hygeine kit. You might also want to take a journal and a bible (religious books are the only books you can have). About $40 is all you'll need to have on you, so don't take a lot of money.
Do not take a camera, radio, or any other electronics. You won't need them, and the instructors will just take them up. Don't bother taking any sentimental items, either. If they aren't confiscated, they are just as likely to get lost or stolen. Just think of the bare minimum of survival. The less you can pack with you, the better.
I went to basic training with the setup I gave you in the first paragraph, and I did just fine. Just remember that in the first week the instructors will take your stuff and lock it up for the duration of basic.
