    Okay. The site is back up so a belated welcome!

    I tried making a new post because the site was half working at that time but it died completely by then.. I hope you're still around so I can try to answer any questions you may have.

    You have about 2 months before you ship. Plenty of time to get in shape. My main suggestion is to be able to pass the APFT before you ship. It'll make BCT all that much easier.

    That's an interesting MOS. I was in the Combat Arms (Airborne Infantry) so I'm of no use for any questions you have concerning MOS 68R. My old roommate did that when he was in the USAF but he's now deceased. He seemed to like it, though & was stationed in England for most of his enlistment. I lost track of him. I went in the Navy & he went in the AF & we both got out about the same time. Then he moved & I wound up in the Army & heard recently that he died some time ago.

    Good luck!

    I was a Soldier. I am a Soldier. I will always be a Soldier.
