    ya.....the Hardest part would probably be avoiding injury especially if you aren't getting sleep.

    what is the option 40?....and why would you have to go through Bootcamp if you already passed?

    Forgot about that part. That will probably help you out though. Not going through boot you won't lose any fitness that you have gained training for EOD.

    I retired from the AF after 24 years of AD (MSgt). I did Pharmacy though. Good luck man!

    Aim High and here's a bit of advice my uncle gave me before I joined at 17...

    "Your attitude WILL affect your altitude."

    Option 40 guarantees you a spot in RASP after boot and MOS school.

    Rgr..

    ( I looked it up) sounds Hard Core...

    "The training curriculum was specifically designed to "smoke" the trainees through endless punishment via constant physical training. In the second week of RASP, the class is sent to "Cole Range"; a remote training area of Fort Benning. It is designed to test the individual to their breaking point both physically and mentally; trainees sleep on average 4 hours total throughout Cole Range "

    that would F alot guys up!

    There's a new show on The CW called Valor about the Night Stalkers and it's about as cringe-worthy and you'd imagine (including multiple Hooahs during sex and of course some hot model looking chick who just so happens to be a pilot).

    Were you able to choose your actual MOS and not just the general field?

    yes, I chose between the 3 that had the highest bonus that month (well besides 18x option): fueler, cook, and motor t/truck driver.

    I chose fueler

    How many people joining the Army get to do that? Talk about a huge advantage over USMC recruiting (only nasty reservists can pick their actual job).

    AFAIK there are no open contracts in the Army, you always know your MOS before going to BCT

    Also, you don't go to BCT and then wait at your MOS school location for class to start like they do here at MCCESS MAAT. They simply wait to ship you to bootcamp, so when you graduate you'll head right to your next class at MOS school

    a few differences here and there.

    I also went to FT Jackson, we had women literally in our platoon. IOW, it was a joke

    So everyone can choose their specific job and not just that field? For example, 0300 in the USMC is infantry and you have 0311 rifleman, 0331 machine gunner, 0341 mortarman, etc. You can enlist 0300 but not the specific job unless you're a reservist. You're saying that in the Army, someone not only can enlist 11X infantry but they can choose between 11B or 11C?
