about damn time
Air Assault school is so last year.
also my SFAS date is October 18
Bah fuck air assault... SPIES is much more cool. Instead of sliding down you get to fly from the rope!
Rappel Master > Everything outside SpecOps related schools.
Hmm that would be cool. I wonder how much air assault type training we'll get at group. Prob depends on the ODA's mission statement. You go through Rappel Master? What does it involve besides rappeling obviously
That's exactly what happened to me.
Didn't work, though. Although now I wish it had.
edit: Oh - and CONGRATULATIONS, Dark!
heres info on rappel master
congrats, my E-5 is also on the way. Dont know if Ill be around to get it though since Ill be in ROTC at the end of this month.
Oh and good luck with SFAS, one of my buddies just made it through, and is about to head to Q
What MOS did you go in with?
thanks for all the replies and stuff guys
i joined the army as an 11B with a Airborne and RIP contract.
Nice, That's probally the route I'll be taking, too (11B / Airborne).
What is a RIP contract?
Ranger Indoctrination Program: 3wk course an upon completion you go to the one of the 3 Ranger Battalions.
Edit: Read about it. Sounds very tough, yet very intriguing.
oh yeah def. go for a ranger contract bro. its called an 11X with OPTION 40 (option 40 is airborne and RIP) great contract and it will challenge you and make you a better man for sure
Sounds so amazing and something I need in my life. I am definitely 6-12 months away from enlisting, as I have alot of things I have to do and get done before I get in, but I am absolutely committed right now to preparing myself in everyway possible and getting myself into much better psychical shape than I am right now.
How old were you when you enlisted? I'll be 19 in October (Halloween in fact). So, I'll most likely be close to 20 years old when I enlist.
I enlisted when I was 18 and turned 19 a month or so before I left for Basic. I considered the RIP contract but couldn't get one so i got a 18x Special Forces contract and have been doing that. Definetly the right choice for me.
i left at 18 turned 19 in basic
yeah 18x is a good choice too, but ranger and sf are complete opposites just about, so research both before you make a choice, both are great choices to do something bad ass for your country
No doubt. Will do sir.
My E-4 should be here in September Damn you complicated ass rating exam!
fuck, i lost my slot to some cadets or some bullshit, they have my slot now for september class. grrr, thats gonna put it close to my october sfas date, i may go in november for sfas now god damn u army...
