I saw another DEPr on here with a ship date one day before mine for 11x.
I can't seem to find him now if anyone could point me in the right direction I would like to connect with him prior to shipping. Thank you.

Ranger Jim,
I am approaching my 25m target of high school graduation.
My 50m target being my promotion to E-2.

My current plans to obtain an OP40 are as follows,
When I return to MEPS I am going to ask if any Airborne or OP40 DEP losses occured giving me the chance of gaining the slot.
If I fail there, during basic training after my first PT test, I hope to explain my intentions to my Drill Sgt. and ask him what it would take for me to earn an OP40 from him.

If I am unsuccessful in earning an OP40 from my Drill Sgt. in basic training or my AIT portion of OSUT, and our class gets no visit from a Ranger Recruiter, I am hoping to submit my application directly on the day of my Turning Blue Ceremony.

If I am unsuccessful in these attempts, when I am sent to my unit I hope to communicate with my chain of command and ask what is needed of me for me to earn a spot in Airborne school.

My updated PT score is as follows,
Pushups 72
Situps 70
2 mile 12:37
Pull ups 9

Thank you, Rangers

Good plan, Chase. The Regimental Recruiters schedule a briefing to each OSUT class. Never, never quit!
