Re: Inquiry about recruiting process

Calvin, I just enlisted a young man into 11X Option 40. I had to call the ROC (Recruiting Operations Center) and was able to get the training for the RECSTA week of 20140310 shipping on 20140303. I did not see any Option 40s on the system but calling the ROC usually helps. Has your recruiter tried t...

Re: Inquiry about recruiting process

Calvin, you must go through your recruiter. It is bullshit that they won't let you test, physical , and return. You can always try a different recruiting office. I'd try one more time and explain to the recruiters you understand how this works. You want to be 100% qualified first and then enlist onc...

Re: Inquiry about recruiting process

Calvin, you need to go ahead and get fully qualified now even if there are no Option 40 Slots open right now. If the slots open and you have't done anything to become qualified you might miss out. By all means take the ASVAB, Physical, and get Airborne qualified. Have your application 100% completed...

Re: Introduction AG0715

Welcome to the site AG0715. If you're leaving on 6 January from the Houston Meps I'll see you and more than likely take care of your contract. And If you don't have the Ranger Creed memorized lets just say your day will be longer than it needs to be.

Re: Introduction - Calvin

Calvin, welcome to the site. Have your recruiter look at the RECSTA date 20140922 for 11X Option 40. I know for a fact that we had some Option 40 slots on that date for high school seniors. Good Luck and if you have any recruiting questions or issues please let me know.

Re: Financial Aspects

Proudlosers, once you're in the Army you'll have access to the TSP plan. I highly recommend you use it. The money you set aside in the TSP grows tax free. The TSP is like a civilian 401K. Never Quit and remember it is impossible to work out too hard before you ship. Push yourself harder than you eve...

Re: New hopeful Ranger

Have your recruiter call your MEPS counselors and they can check weekly to see if they can update your reservation with Option 40. Some counselors are lazy and won't do it or make excuses as to why they can't. I am not one of those counselors. Updating a reservation to option 40 takes less than 2 mi...

Re: How long can the DEP actually "delay"? (College)

If your in college they can delay your shipping until the semester ends. Generally you'll ship anywhere from 2 weeks to a month after the semester ends. So assuming you'll finish in the spring of 2014 you could expect to ship between May and June 2014. Generally speaking if you have a degree the Arm...
