    When you have to worry about the internet grammar police there's not a whole left to worry about. Gotta get your priorities squared away, Chief.

    In all seriousness, please do stay safe! I enjoy coming on here and reading your advice to us Future/Junior Soldiers. Your type of humor is also spot on with mine

    So I leave on the 8th of July. I feel excited but also have some nervous jitters as well. I feel ready, any advise on what to study from the AAS Handbook though? I've been looking thru the specs of rotary wing aircraft, a lot of the Phase II stuff and rapelling. Anything else? Thanks

    Make sure you post about how it was. I've been wanting to go to Air Assault School for a while now and want to hear from someone who's been there recently.

    ten minutes than a Grunt squad can do all day.

    I graduated from air assault school in 2006. It is not rocket science. It is good to read up on the manual before you attend but you will be instructed on everything you need to pass the course while attending.

    Your main focus is to just get pass zero day. Once you do that; then take each phase at a time.

    I went through at Fort Campbell. The original and hardest This is me back in the day.
