For Perspective DEP's Searching For An Option 40 READ NOW

Post by centermass » August 10th, 2019, 2:21 pm

11X currently shows up to a 50K bonus for a 6 year enlistment. Same thing with an Option 40, depending on line scores. You will need at least 107 GT. DOD right now is short of meeting its goal on what’s needed for Infantrymen in Fiscal Year 19 (FY19).

FY 19 ends September 15th. Next Friday (The 16th of August, 2019) starts the last Recruiting month of FY19.

FY 19 will end September 15th, 2019. Meaning next Friday starts the last Recruiting month of FY19. The best time to look to enlist is 1st thing on Wednesday mornings, The system is reloaded every week on Tuesday at midnight.

Bottom line? 1st thing Wednesday morning, August 21st, is your best shot. And every Wednesday morning after that, until September 11th, are your final best shots.

Damn. I don't think I made $50k the entire time I was in the Army.

Repeal the 16th, enforce the 10th.
