    Hi Chris,

    Welcome to the site and congrats on a great career choice. You have chosen varied MOS's which is great as you obviously have done some research and have a plan A, B and C. Are you thinking active duty (AD) or National Guard.... or Army Reserves?

    I would do further research on your choices and gain insight into them by visiting sites like this... asking questions as you go about the life, the job, etc. I would also advise that you start practicing for your AVSAB and get into world class shape... you could be surprised how much of a benefit even an hour every second day of quality PT can do. There is allot of threads on this site about PT so do your research and come back with questions. Theres allot of experienced soldiers here whom can field such queries.

    I would also encourage your wife to do some research and get onto forums to gain further insight into Army life and the movement away from civilian life actually means. They say behind every great soldier is an even greater wife...

    Do let us know if you have any queries and how you get on with your visits to the recruiter.

    Best Regards

    Hi everyone. Just joined this forum because I'm sort of involved with someone claiming to be a U.S. army soldier but parts of his story seem doubtful. I'm hoping to be able to find some answers and maybe get a better understanding if this guy is for real or not. If this isn't the forum for this or someone can point me in the right direction to find out if this soldier is who he says he is, I'd appreciate you letting me know.

    Hi Alice & welcome!

    What caused you to be suspicious of this "Soldier"? This will help us give you some questions you can ask him. His answers will help us determine if he's a poser.

    Good luck & be careful with him.
