  1. Welp, Just finished prior service boot camp. The last time I was on here was when I was taking the bus ride to the base. Glad to be done and back in Florida. I've been out a lil bit, was combat arms in USAF, did some contracting (protection work) for a long while and then to be at MEPS after processing 8 months for the WOFT program(Feb selected) and being unexpectedly told that I'd have to do boot camp was a kick in the balls. But like anything in life, if you want something bad enough......and I do!
  2. On the bus to PSBCT so will be short. MEPS and my friend that was in the April class said this is it. Im in the last class. He and I have had 5 to 10yrs breaks in Service. We are both combat arms, he Army and I came from the Air Force. We both had to do this regardless of break. The website saying less than 3 yrs is outdated. But with that said, as I have been told anyone who transitions now will go through the full bct with the first timers. (Due to lack of full psbct classes) Sorry for that news and good luck to everyone. I wasnt expecting to have to do this but, Im willing to do whatever it takes!
  3. Ill be at Prior Service Boot Camp in FLW Missouri on Tuesday. My good friend just returned last week from it. Not looking fwd to it!
  4. Thank you and others for your post. I was explained this after selection. This all has been very fluid and some processing errors have occurred. There are some things in the works. CO and HI are off the table, huge recruiter error! Ill be drilling in NW Florida
  5. lol must be me. My unlucky situation. We got it fixed best we can. And I agree, the website needs to be updated
  6. D10 is absolutely correct. I have had a few phone calls regarding the error in processing me in what was thought to be a street to seat WOFT reserves only packet. From the recruiters all the way up to the guy I sat down with to sign my contract at MEPS was misunderstanding the process, but we all learned from it and hopefully will help with future candidates. We have figured out what my next step is going to be and its very promising. I will be seeing some of you guys at Rucker sooner than later. Next up for me is Warrior Transition Course!
  7. MERDOC Appreciate your time to dig that up. Thank you I will look up the reference numbers that you have posted. If anyone else has anything to add, your insight is greatly appreciated as well as I try to gather as much info as possible
  8. Active for training wocs, flight school etc. After completion of training I would be at the needs of the Army. Day one of 3yrs starts the day I go to Prior Service Basic training aka Warrior Transition Course, then WOCS...........
  9. So my recruiter is telling me that he is finding out from higher that myself as a prior service member or any civilian that wants to apply for the WOFT program you have to sign for a three-year ACTIVE DUTY commitment and then you will finish out the rest of your time in the reserve units. Or something along those lines. I am trying to find where the regs are for this but I was at the mep station today and wasnt able to sign my contract because of this issue. I was Selected Jan/Feb board. Can anyone help with info on this? My recruiter and I thought that you could process for this program street to seat into the reserves.
  10. Thanks. I fly some fixed wing now and looking fwd to cross training into the helo side. I do see the benefit as you alluded to though. I found the travel info mentioned above and it looks like I can fly round trip form FL-CO for around $250-$290 so with in that $300 travel expense reimbursement. Pretty sure that I will be signing on with the CO unit. Hawaii would be nice but Ive been there and its quite a trip from Florida for each drill. Looking fwd to swearing in for Return to Service this week. Thanks for everyones time and input answering questions.
  11. Anyone have any knowledge on the Colorado Springs reserve mission, or the Schofield Barracks Hawaii mission.? Im leaning toward the Colorado unit due to shorter travel requirements from south Florida.
  12. DNR032 Excellent info. Ill proceed as you said. If I have to suck it up travel wise then I will do that. Like we say, focus on the 25 meter target. I definitely wont miss this opportunity over the above mentioned. Just gathering as much intel as possible. Thanks for your insight. Djs74 Thank you. Ill see what I can dig up.
  13. And if you are prior service going straight to WOCS please post as well.
  14. Great info above. I tried finding some info regarding this. So are you saying if my ticket to drill cost $600 the unit will only reimburse $300 of that? Where can I find this printed/posted. I would like to provide this to the recruiter that is contacting these units
