Greetings to US Soldiers and Officers. Two weeks ago on St. Patrick's Day, I got sworn in at MEPS.I take that as a sign of good luck.I couldn't fall asleep the night before at the hotel.My adrenaline got me through the long day of processing. I scored well (79) on the ASVAB and the only other MOS that held my attention was 18X Special Forces candidate.But if I were to select that, the pressure would have been too high.My heart was set on Infantry and willing to work my way up the ladder.I was so excited and thrilled that I forgot to mention I wanted to goto Jump School.Hopefully I will get to volunteer for Jump School. In my contract, it said 11C course mandatory.So I guess I'll be trained in Indirect Fire/mortars as well. I know there are many NCO's and veterans here.Any advice to a new recruit is very welcome.I've been doing push-ups and sit-ups through out the days and nights.Going to the park and running when I can. Its an honor really.Im the first in my family to be US Army or any branch.
