Re: VFW

You guys having any GWOT era veterans show up blueskiesalways? I've had quite a few buddies go check out various VFW's/American Legions and I'm yet to hear of a positive interaction between those of my generation and older veterans at these places. My own outside experience with the local VFW comman...

Re: Intro - He>I

Welcome to the site. What's your deciding factor(s) on choosing Regiment over SF or vice versa? Do you want to be an 11B or a something else (eg maybe a Chaplain's assistant in your case)? Good luck and never quit!

Re: Washing out?

These may not be able to be answered but I'll ask it anyway... How does one "wash out" of RASP. For example, I know that in SFAS, one can wash out by voluntarily withdrawing, medically withdrawing, not getting selected, etc . But how does someone not make it through RASP? Second question, if you wa...

Re: Introduction-Luke

Push ups-32 Sit ups-36 2 mile run-17 min (But I think I ran like 2.3) Pull ups-2 (Couldn't do them but got 2 on my last JROTC test) I know these scores are embarassing, but a couple months ago I was doing 14 pushups and 20-something situps so I've improved a bit and I'm looking to improve a lot mor...

Re: Introduction-Luke

If your end game is to be an 18 series why not just go in with an 18X contract? Why waste your time and Regiments time? A good friend of mine was a medic prior to going to selection, and he ended up becoming an 18E so I don't think they much care what you were in your prior Army life. Good luck, wel...

Re: Recruiter says I cant do Airborne Physical

If I remember correctly the 'Airborne physical' was simply the doc watching me pop my ears and that was it. There may have been something with the color vision test but I seem to remember everyone looking at those silly placards (either PIP or FALANT according to AR 40-501) regardless and I find it ...

Re: Guard to Opt 40

Talking to the Liaisons while at Airborne might be your best bet, although depending how busy they are you might not get much time to chat. I don't know if the recruiters have a physical office for non-Regimental personnel to visit but it might be something to look into as well while your down at Be...

Re: Guard to Opt 40

Have you tried calling the Regimental Recruiting Office (706-545-5124) directly? I had to reenlist to get a RIP slot which might be the course of action you have to take, so maybe try contacting your reenlistment NCO as well. Good luck, never quit!
