Do most Army soldiers want aviation?


Recommended Posts

Ugh. Can we stick to the theme of the thread please? There are plenty of other serious threads for nonsense like SIFT, APFT and flight hours. This is shindig's journey to becoming a WO. Let's stay the course.

Someone wants his daily dose of shindig entertainment :)

Lindsey thats about it...there wasnt much to it... was asked some q's after i did the ekg and they checked my height which btw was ok you dont have to be 6ft to be a pilot...and they checked my arm lentgh etc. He said i had to wait like a month or a maybe just few wks to get everything cleared but I should be good

 

so I'm just really in a great spot bc this means the all medical stuff is behind me so now the ball is in my court to get a woft slot. I'm working on getting letters, resume and getting my pt up...i'm kind of worried right now about getting a wo letter because i don't know anyone but i'll just have to figure out something...i always do. But I'm most of the way to my goal....just need to get my docs done and have recruiter send my packet and wait to hear if I made it or not

Maybe nobody told you, but the flight physical, the PT test, the SIFT, that's not most of the way to your goal. If your goal is to get wings pinned on, you have a very long and painful road ahead of you. If, by some glitch in the matrix, you are accepted into this program, I look forward to the thought of you getting your ass kicked by drill sergeants, TAC officers, HOST training, SERE instructors, IPs, and every Warrant at B Co that actually deserves to be there.

Reading this, I couldn't help but say, I can't WAIT to get MY ass kicked by Drill Sgts et al. I get the feeling that, should I get in, it will be the best "bad" experience ever! :) Sigh.....

Shindig,

 

Can I get your recruiter's name and number? I've been working on my packet for MONTHS, and you've been working on yours for weeks. You must have the best recruiter in the Army.

rakk i started on mine months ago so not sure what you mean by weeks...i mean i wish it only took a few weeks...lol...but it takes time to get your pt up and i'm still not done with that. I did not even make the charts in the beginning especially the pushups but ive gotten a lot better. Once i bought new shoes that helped a ton thanks to some money from a really nice person. how far are you with the woft application? Good luck
