  1. A personal favorite list.. I Prevail- 'Heart vs. Mind' Disturbed - ' Immortalized Avenged Sevenfold - 'Critical Acclaim' Escape the Fate - 'Just a Memory' Escape the Fate - 'This War is Ours' Limp Bizkit - 'Nookie' A Day to Remember - 'Sometimes You're the Hammer, Sometimes You're the Nail' Upon This Dawning - 'Call Me Maybe' (yes, it's a cover but it jams) If you liked the 'Call me Maybe' cover, I Prevail does a pretty awesome one of Taylor Swift's 'Blank Space'. Don't lie you know you want to rock out to this song.
  2. Nice choice with the 311! They've got some more upbeat jams as well, good for running.
  3. Traveling light is the way to go! Coming from Mississippi is a bit closer than Arizona as well...
  4. No family to bring with Eagle, I'm packing light.
  5. Well at least I'll knock that one out first then. Yamer, are you at Fort Rucker now or are you in Arizona?
  6. Haha sounds like a nice vacation, maybe it'll make Rucker in August not seem so bad. Eagle I have the same report date, the day before my birthday.
  7. I ship June 1st to Fort Jackson. Prime time for some good humid PT. When do you plan on heading to Rucker?
  8. I'll be in that class bud, fresh out of Basic.
  9. That's a bummer, sorry to hear that dude.
  10. Haha yeah I spent 8.5 years living there, some damn good times. And yes the brewery kills it, the Christmas Ale is especially fantastic.

  12. Yes you can 100% redo your Battalion Board, that's what I was doing when I saw you last month. I was told no my first selection board and I did that battalion board for a better score and it seems to have made a huge difference. Make it happen, don't give up.
  13. Just spoke with a major that was on my battalion board.....Officially Selected! I hope that others on here receive similar news, I asked if he had any details on the board, but all he knew were my results. I'm pulling for everyone else, and happy to say the easy part is over.
  14. try not to think about it too much today....yeah right. Good luck, some solid applicants here.
  15. holy jesus that is some intense sh*t. I'm sold on that composite construction after that for sure.
  16. This elevated my heart rate a bit, serious skills going on here. Plus an epic soundtrack.
  17. Hope you got some good news today dude. Fingers crossed. And as for everyone else, who's ready for the 12th to be here? I know I am.
  18. A similar situation happened to me during my flight physical, I was scheduled for a class 4 physical through every department. Until I was talking to the eye doctor and he realized I needed a class 1 so I had the refraction test completed. I still had to go back for more blood work though, since I ate food directly after labs.
  19. This is a great piece of information, thanks Lindsey. I'll be going over my LOR's now to decide which ones are truly worth while.
  20. After a frustrating week, I can safely say I WILL be on the January board after a few corrections and improvements. My packet was not placed on the selection board for November (very long story) so this will technically be my initial selection board, even though I was ready for the September Board. Good luck to everyone. For reference here is my Packet stats: Age: 28 GT/AFQT: 125/85 SIFT: 66 APFT: 244 (re-taking in the next few weeks) Education: Associate of Arts Degree w/ 3.4 GPA Flight Physical: Completed and Approved Waiver: ACL Reconstruction in 2009, Abnormal EKG LOR's: Former Employer (Private Business Owner), Former Supervisor (Govt Employee), Previous College Professor (Retired Police Officer, and State Representative), Retired Army LTC (Family Friend), AD Army CW4. Board: Scheduling a new Battalion Board for specific reasons (this is where the long story is) Aviation: PPL in Rotor-craft. 55 total flight hours. Other Info: Current Retail Manager for Oakley Inc., Assistant Manager/ Buyer for private retail company for 4 years, spent time Volunteering for Town of Breckenridge for multiple events.
  21. The next few days might feel a bit longer than usual...
  22. Welcome Jayden. Don't be so hard on yourself, you have a completed packet and that sometimes is the hardest part. There are always areas everyone can improve, but you do have strong points (TIS, APFT, GT score). I bet interviewing with the CW4 from the 160th was pretty interesting. Good luck to you as well.
