  1. How would I set my own up? I have to get this done in the next 2 weeks or I'll miss the March board. My recruiter has been really helpful, but is taking a super long time to set this up.
  2. Could you pass a vision test without that issue coming up or hindering you?
  3. slightly off topic, but a lot of folks seem to check this thread, so I'm hoping to get some feedback quickly through here, sorry to disrupt the flow... I am interviewing this week with a CW5 and CW4 for LOR's. I also, however, have a close friend/mentor who is a retired CW3 who flew for the 158th in Vietnam who agreed to write me one as well. The first two should be fairly in their court, but what should I be asking my friend to write in his LOR? Like I said he is a retired CW3, former college professor and current Southern Baptist minister. What in particular should I email him and ask him to focus on?

  5. I see Blackhawks flying up into the mountains here in AK everyday. Flying here would be freaking amazing. I'm so jealous every time I see them. Huge mountains, every variation of weather condition, long nights half the year, hard to imagine much better experience many other places.
  6. I read that they are currently rolling the uh-60m into active use, do any of those ever drop at Rucker or do they only transition active 60 guys into them?
  7. Still works for me. I'm 20/20 near. Corrected far sighted vision.
  8. You, sir, are thorough. That's awesome, now I know I'm good, at least vision wise.
  9. I double checked with my recruiter again today and he assured me that there are "correctable parameters" for corrected vision and if you're within it won't affect your packet (no waiver required). I don't know what's what, but my physical is in a couple weeks so, we'll see I guess.
  10. So, essentially what I'm filtering through this all is you'd basically be a whiney bitch if you complained about flying ANY one of these things. Noted.
  11. Well crap. Now I'm starting to get nervous, like they don't know what the hell they're talking about. Although they seem to be sure of themselves…I don't know. Whatever happens, happens. I'd wait as long as it took.
  12. So, I keep reading that a lot of you seem to be having trouble completing your packet because you either A) need PRK, are waiting now that PRK is done, or C) must compete certain steps in the correct WOFT packet order before you can do others. Here's where I'm at and what I have been told thus far: I completed the ASVAB and AFAST. Next I took my MEPS physical. Now this is interesting to me because I was allowed to take my MEPS physical because I am far-sighted and have been told that so long as my vision is within correctable parameters it won't affect me because if I'm selected I'll just be given PRK. All I have left now is my flight physical, APFT and that's it. I have everything else. What are your thoughts on the whole PRK thing? I mean at my MEPS physical when they did my eye exam (knowing I was there for WOFT) they checked me out and signed me off saying quote, "you're within range and good, they'll take care of that for ya." I feel like this whole process has been going extremely smoothly and quickly for me. I literally decided to do this on 25-Jan and pending the flight physical and APFT (cake) will go to the 28-Mar BB in Seattle. I live in Alaska, so not sure if any of that makes a difference, but anyway, there it all is. Gimme some feedback.
