  1. If you're lucky you might catch her before the entire house is packed up (this actually happened to a friend of mine). Ah, deployments.
  2. Just my two cents but if you're 26 you can't fly for the Marines/Navy, you can certainly still join though you won't be a pilot. I'm not positive about the Air Force but I'm pretty sure the age cutoff is 28 for pilots. Also, what about being an E-4 because you have your degree? Is that a thing now?
  3. Yea, those numbers are correct. The first time I heard about how many people actually went to the board I thought it was just for my local area but it was nation wide. Not a lot of people know about WOFT. Also, putting a packet together weeds out a lot of people because its a long, time consuming process. Best of luck though.
  4. I actually have my BN board this Wed. Aug 31. So it could still be right around the corner (pretty much this week).
  5. I'd like to start by saying I know this is a vague question and can potentially be seen as silly but, I wanted to ask. Are Army aviators getting a good amount of hours? Does it matter if your WO or Commissioned? Some of what I've read says the fleet is having difficulty meeting minimums. In the grand scheme of things I suppose any flight time is better than none, but I was curious.
  6. I think what you really need to do is make sure you and your wife are on board and prepared for deployments. I would say plan on being gone a lot and make the most of when you're not.
  7. Where are you boarding out of? Sounds like they really want to discourage you from being able to get in.
  8. I was told they would play some games like that. Long story short, be confident, concise, articulate and polite. If you do that they will at the very least respect you.
  9. In my own personal opinion. If you want to be an Army aviator do the WOFT program, apply as a civilian. You can always enlist later if you don't get picked up. But long story short if you know what you want to do, take the most direct path and make sure when you sign the contract its clear what you're signing up to do.
  10. Which one of you all are from Sarasota. I originally got recruited out of Sarasota.
  11. I talked to mine over the phone, but I already had a clearance from prior service that hadn't expired.
  12. I didn't know you could do this to someone, it's straight cold blooded. I need to use this on people.
