    Default Prior Service 11B/18X contracts?

    I ETS'd from the Active Army in 2005. I have a re-enlist code of 1. Passed the tape test the other day. I was a 92Y before, but did the job of an Infantryman for 2 years as well as 1 in Afghanistan. My 8 year contract is over and I am finally going to MEPS on Friday (Sept 25, 2009). I have talked with several recruiters and have heard several different stories. I guess I'm looking for an actual first-hand encounter on this. I have heard that if you are certain MOS's in the Army and are PS, you must keep them. If you aren't those, then you have to do a certain few that are offered. One recruiter said that 11B is not even an option right now, and 18X is out of the question. But several threads have stated that if you are PS, then 11B and 18X are your only options.

    I want to Re-enlist as 18X if at all possible. Has anyone done that lately as PS?

    If I can't, then I want to Re-enlist as 11B. Has anyone done that lately as PS, and if so, what all options were you given at MEPS? (BONUS, Choice of station)

    If noone has done either of those, can anyone PS please tell me what they were offered at MEPS and the date that they last went.

    ((PLEASE, ONLY PRIOR SERVICE ACTIVE ARMY ANSWER. RESERVES AND NATIONAL GUARD ARE DIFFERENT AT MEPS))

    I had a PS guy sign up about two months ago, 11B, old job (88M, loose one rank), 18X or EOD, thats it. Things change on a daily basis but I dont know why the Recruiter told you there is no 11B...a guy I signed up last week, NPS, said the same thing to me after being online, I proved him there was 11X contracts when I went into the system and reserved him a slot on 11X...you will not get station of choice, and bonus might as well not even think about it, that way if there is one its a surprise. Also you will get 11X not 11B at MEPS.
