Ohhh fun......get to do a mini basic with the other branches. After being out for 8 years I'm sure a good bit of shit has changed so it will be good.

Now I have to get my old ass in shape before showing up on Benning. Went from being Signal to Infantry at this age :rofl: Yeah I've lost my mind.

A bad place
Congratulations on your decision. I did the same thing at age 46 after a couple decades spent sitting behind a desk. I ran and worked out for a solid month before my ship date. If I was going to do it over I would have started a month earlier.

WTC has changed from when I went through. I did mine at Ft. Knox, with active duty infantry Drill Sgts.

Don't be one of the retreads that gets all butt-hurt the first time you get smoked.

Thanks Ranger! I expect to be smoked a few times and look forward to it in a weird way.

The past eight years I have had a great paying job but watched people continually laid off and duties stacked on. The atmosphere was once a place that was happy to have you slowly turned into you are lucky to have a job. I just sat there and said this isn't what I want to do for the rest of my life. The first time I was in I was young and listened to the vocal bunch where you are expected to do your four and get out and become rich and happy. Well I make good money but the quality of life sucks. While the life in the military can be total SHIT there is something about it that appeals to me. I only regret taking this long to make the decision to return.

Now as far as getting in shape.......starting after today with a program. Figure I can can get in shape with in three months. Want to be able to at least pass the 18 year old PT test before shipping.

personally if i were you i would join la legion etrangere, but best of luck

i could've worded that much differently, sorry :rofl:

essentially what i meant is that if i was in his position, i would join the legion. it's just a personal goal of mine that i have set after i complete my graduate studies. that was stupid of me to say, it has nothing to do with him.

best of luck on your decision. i can see why you want to go into the combat arms field and i hope you find success in it.

Ahhh ok that makes more sense :bigthumb: Glad I'm finally going to take a stab at something I have long regretted not doing the first time around.
