Yup you all. I'm a future soldier til October 17. I leave then I come back around December 20 for two weeks. Then I leave again to go to AIT for 17 weeks and 2 days.

So I'm going in as Signal Support. It was the best and available for that date. It was either that or hospital food. I get like only a 3000 enlistment bonus, but that's a start.

The physical was traumatizing.... Very... But I just thought let's this over with. I mean peeing infront of someone isn't something you would do everyday to begin with. =P

I met a lot of anime fans there. So I could sort out all the applicants.

1. Anime fans
2. Gamers
3. People who have problems with their families and wish to go ASAP.

Yup.. fun.

After being sworn in they told us to stand at attention in the room. So before everyone was talking, and then I put everyone to attention. I'm so aiming for squad leader, but for some odd reason that's going to take a while.

I can't really decide between the army or marines.. I hope your army career is something you enjoy.

Just remember the first time you test positive for drugs in the marines you're never going to be able to apply.

I always get negative =P

**blinks** Wait...so you already did the whole bootcamp thing? Or you're going to in October? And I thought you were going into the Air Force.

**shrugs**

Either way, congrats! I read a lot more than I am able to reply to on this board, believe it or not, so I never really got to reply to your other posts reguarding this stuff...but I think you're absolutely amazing True! I wish you the best of luck in your career! You'll do great!

Hey, True, just take my advise ok, If those bastards in your squad get outta line, crack the whip and you'll make leader in no time. You might get more promotions than that, so, good luck to you!

yeah i'm late -.-' but i've things to add...

hey, what's you contract like? is it 2 years active, followed by 4 inactive or what?

you know, if you were in JROTC for all 4 years, you could've joined in as a PFC. but hopefully, the person in charged of your RO program would've been nice enough to forge some paper works, or even a recommendation for you. it never hurts to ask you know. i think you get an extra $200 a month because of the rank jump.

i know i was in it for 3 years, and my retired 1SG would've gladly said i was in it for 4 years for me to get the extra promotion.

well, my bro joined the national guard, and his boot camp was like 6 months, and he bearly got like 3 or 4k for it. anyways, i dont really recommend the national guard for anyone, because it really does disrupt your life. like you gotta go whenever they want you to go, and sometimes it's for a couple weeks. that doesnt help at all for your school or job to be gone for a couple weeks every couple months. or even weekends if you work on the weekends or w/e.

so do you think you'll get deployed even tho you signed up as a reserves?

lol

I'm in as an E-2 because I was in JROTC for 2 semesters as an officer. I also have a contract of 4 years inactive and 2 active. I wasn't in JROTC all four years... poor me, but I'm getting referals. Not in the National Guard =P yay me.

I really don't know, and I really don't care. Deployed or not I have a life to live. Plus I feel that I'll be part of somthing big when the time comes.

wow, i dont wanna be mean but, whenever i see that they're allowing LD-1's as officers, i just cant help but think their programs are bad =/

here, the highest an LD-1 could hope to be is a c/SGT, and that's very very rare because you have to go before a promotion board in secrecy. but other than that, at the end of the year, you can be a c/1SG from recommendations, but never higher than that =/ only LD-3's are allowed to be officers =/ but wow, officer in your first semester =/

but hey, i'm glad you're able to get the 4 inactive first, because if you ever make it to the NBA or something like that, they'll excuse the 2 years active

We aren't a bad program, we're the very first program in the school. I needed the classes for academic credits and that happened to fall under something other than fine arts. We just started out, and mostly Seniors got to be leaders because they "know the ropes"
