Yo, update to my numbers. I ran a 280 PFT. I dropped 12 points on the sit ups. The 76 sit ups are much harder than the 115 Marine crunches that I am accustomed to.

Still a good score. Good luck!

Hello all. I submitted for the November board myself. My packet and waiver were approved and the WO Recruiter I got the board ready email from claims That even though I submitted after the July Deadline, my packet was validated and board ready before this last board, so my packet was (allegedly) boarded for September. Not sure if it was or wasn’t since the list isn’t out yet. But if it wasn’t I’ll still be along for the November board.

Civilian, NPS. I'm currently a High school business / math teacher, and a park ranger on a mountain during the summer where I do law enforcement and first response. I'm also an EMT on the local Search and Rescue team. I'll fly whatever they give me but I've done a lot of medevacs and trauma missions, and would love to fly Blackhawks for medevacs.

No Army family history, but my dad and his dad were USAF O-4s who flew F16s, my mom was AirNG and her dad was an USAF E-9 fixed-wing mechanic.

Flight Physical: Stamped, no Waivers (thought I was going to be on May board, but found out I needed an eye surgery during my first phys, so here I am finally after post-op got cleared)

LORs: USAF O8 in my dad's squadron back in the day and has known me since I was born, USN O5 (ret.) Search and Rescue pilot on my SAR team, CW4(ret.) I've known for 20 years, and USAF O6 (ret. but still contracting for USAF) civil engineer I've known since I was born (my best friend's dad).

Where's all the message traffic? Post activity seems a little slow for this board. I doubt it is an indicator of board ready applicants but there definitely was more chatter on the previous board pages.
