  1. Will they get me the checklist when I get there or is there someplace I can find it?
  2. Is there anything I can be studying for while I wait to ship out? I've been out of the army for a year and I figured there'd be some basic army stuff I'd want to brush up on before I leave, but are there any specific things I should focus on? Thanks!
  3. That's interesting. Do they not have you in barracks for WOCS? What is the living situation and day to day like? I'm also trying to figure out if anything's changed with PCS orders to WOCS and moving my family down there. To my knowledge they don't let you move family down until you graduate WOCS is this still the case? It sounds like so much has changed recently.
  4. Yeah I was hearing that about being able to drive ourselves. That's nice. I'm a warrant. I guess I meant to say WBOLC or whatever the proper term is. My bad, still figuring out the ropes.
  5. Hey everyone, I've been trying to find different posts that address this, as I'm sure you all are tired of answering the same questions over and over again, but so far I haven't had much luck or people have individual circumstances that are different. I got selected back in July, to start WOCS in January. I'm a prior service E4, so no BCT for me. I've gotten very little information about what the move is going to be like, what the process is (when I was doing my research it was WOCS, SERE, BOLC, flight school, or close to that), and how COVID has changed things. I've reached out to my recruiting staff and they aren't familiar with the process either. I've been reading on here that COVID has led to a lot more freedom and online training. What's life like in training right now? What does the process look like right now? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm married too so I'm looking at moving onto housing after WOCS, unless that too has changed. Thanks!
  6. Hey guys, dumb question here, but I'm looking for a jacket, and I can't seem to find any that are specifically approved for army aviation. I figured I could save some money here, it doesn't make much sense to have one jacket for civilian flying and one for military flying. Does anyone have info on what is Army approved and what's not, or if in fact there isn't anything approved? Thanks!
  7. Ok, that's awesome. I'll do my best to line myself for that then, appreciate the help, it means a lot to me, I've wanted to do this for a long time.
  8. Yeah I mean I'm not like eager to go to war or something, but I do want a practical opportunity to do my job that I'll have trained for for years by then. And especially if I can get MEDEVAC, I've always wanted to save lives, and while I'm sure there will be other opportunities for that, I feel like a combat deployment would be a good place for that.
  9. This is interesting, and potentially good news. I was reading other places that emailing or inquiring about it if you're interested is a good idea too, but its still kind of up to chance.
  10. Hey Everyone, I recently got selected during the July WOFT board, and I'm while I'm not leaving until the end of the year, I really want to line myself up to get into MEDEVAC. I realize that selecting blackhawks is a must, but I have no idea beyond emailing battalion/brigade leaders and asking at my receiving unit. What bases have more MEDEVAC units? I'm looking at Fort Drum right now, I've heard 10th Mountain deploys to Afghanistan a decent amount and would like to get on a deployment if that's still going on in 2+ years, but I have no idea how many medical birds they have or what my chances would be with that. Any advice would really be appreciated.
  11. Hey all congratulations if you got selected! Sounds like there were 43 applicants with 21 being selected, or so I was told. If anyone needs help with the process, I may be able to give some pointers, although the whole coronavirus thing really threw a spanner in the works. I started applying in January. I got selected and here are my stats: AGE: 23 RANK: E-4, 3 years National Guard GT SCORE: 129 SIFT: 62 APFT: 260 EDUCATION: B.S. Aviation Studies, 3.6 GPA FLIGT: 160 hours fixed wing, PPL, IRA, HP/Complex LOR: Senior Aviation professor at my school, Lead flight instructor/flight school owner, Pastor PHYSICAL: Stamped WAIVER: None
  12. Hey, that's still cool. You're still going for it, a lot of people would've given up before now. The fact you're still pushing ahead is a really good reflection of character. I'm sure you'll do well in the army.
  13. So on USAREC the board schedule says May 15 is the packet deadline. I've been waiting to get the flight physical for 2 months now and stuff is just now opening up. I've heard though that the May 15th deadline is in flux and there's been changes to everything and I was just wondering if anyone had more concrete information on the boards. Also Fort Belvoir VA does flight physicals, if you're having a hard time finding a place. I just figured that out lol
