  1. So I did my applicant when I was a member of the Army National Guard. My entire process was done as though I was a civilian applicant. I did a board appearance with the recruiting battalion command team. My packet had all the requirements of a full blown street-to-seat applicant. I had to revisit MEPS for an initial-entry physical, as well as ship from MEPS as though I was headed to IET. I did things as close as possible to what an in-service applicant would do. Used military forms for my resume, got LORs from my company and battalion commander, etc... But in reality I was being treated like a civilian. Sounds like this guy is in the same boat.
  2. No, I'm in ALSE. Three of us in that class are headed to Bravo. If you know a guy named Hill, tell him I say hi.
  3. You have to be coming from the LUH course to even have a chance at FW.
  4. Internet access and *internet access* are two different things, ya know?
  5. Candidates, generally speaking, do not have internet access until a few days before graduation.
  6. It's needs of the Army, as it has always been. LUH classes are the only ones getting FW slots. LTs and WOs draw from two entirely different pools that are managed separately. Not sure about duty stations, but I believe Bragg, Bliss, and Korea are on the menu. Talk to your SMO about your preference for an LUH class. I don't know who it is now for CC hold, but I'm sure it won't be a problem. It looks like a 50/50 split between 67s and 72s at Cairns now, so you should be fine.
  7. Whenever I hear someone say that a suit will last a lifetime I always think of this picture.
  8. Well like I said, I have three damn dogs. Maybe this would be a good way to cut down on pet expenses.
  9. First time headed there. Married with a 7 year old and three dogs. I'm about five weeks into the 60M course now, and slated to finish in early June. If anyone has any advice I'd be happy to hear it.
  10. One of our instructors today told us an anecdote about a time when he forgot to key the FM to discharge static that had built up, and how it resulted in someone who was handling a sling load getting a little zap. I didn't really think about it until after class, but I was curious if any of you old/experienced folks around here could explain why exactly keying the FM allows the static to dissipate.
  11. I'd suggest you talk to the fellow you spoke to earlier here at Rucker regarding that.
  12. I feel like I'm missing something... every time this fella comments the hate train rolls on by. What gives?
  13. 27 is definitely not too old to start military flying - at least not for the Army. My first flight in a TH-67 was a few months before my 28th birthday. I believe the maximum age is 33 at the time of selection. If flying is what you want to do, seriously consider WOFT. Not many people get paid to go to flight school, as well as gaining education benefits along the way. http://www.usarec.army.mil/hq/warrant/prerequ/woft.shtml/ Edit: Yup, the maximum age is 33. I was selected in May of 2015, and started the UH-60M course two days ago. You'll learn more here in a shorter amount of time, and for way less money, than any other route.
  14. For what it is worth, in WOCS one of our TACs addressed this issue. He was pretty adamant that you will be separated six months after you are passed over. In fact, he wouldn't stop talking about it at small group meetings, because apparently he was facing that while we were in class. Hey, look at me contributing to the conversation with all of my vast knowledge... heh.
  15. There is now a rumor that the investigation is being reopened, though I don't how accurate it is.
  16. Yup. I'm glad the story is spreading. If what she is saying is true, and I have no reason to doubt it, then there'd better be some blowback against D Co cadre and BN for their conduct in this matter.
