Ranger disinfertention, I have not yet completed the ASVAB my school doesn’t offer it, so I have to take the online one. And my recruiter said I can’t go to MEPs until I’m 14 months from my ship date, I have to confirm my test score. I am set to take it in March.

Continue to improve yourself while you wait. Execute another APFT with chin-ups in the next week or so and let's see how you progressed.

Remember that once you are signing a contract or talking to someone at MEPs is not the time to decide what you want. Determine now, while you are not under any pressure, that you want an MOS with an OPT 40 (Airbrone, Ranger) and stick to that. Settle for nothing less.

Ranger Disinfertention, I apologize for the wait. I had the flu this past week and wasn’t able to complete an APFT however this evening I completed one. My pushups have improved slightly 66 in 2 minutes, 74 sit-ups in 2 minutes. 15:13 on my 2 mile. Where I run is rolling hills. On a track or relatively flat surface, that’ll increase. 13 chin-ups. In a week or two when I’m feeling 100% better I’ll complete another one with a 5 mile run substitute.
