    I was signed on and through MEPs in only a short week. I didn't have a lot of time to learn about much of what I was doing. It was fortunate that I was expecting a worse situation that what it was. I would of loved to learn more about what I was doing.. (though most of my activities as a 14T is SECRET clearance so there wasn't much for me to find)

    In the seventies I was on the cross country team and a mile/two miler on the track team. That helped me when I enlisted. Running in basic was pretty easy… I even carried Charlie 8 2's guidon. My recruiter told me to keep my mouth shut, do it right the first time, and don't draw attention to yourself. I followed his advice. And I remember when the Drill Sergeant (caps intended) called out my name in the barracks somewhere around week five. I responded and he looked at me, looked at some paperwork, and asked me…"Who the hell are you and how long have you been here?" "All the way, Drill Sergeant…Trainee Owens…Day one!" GT Score 138 helped him, even though at that time I didn't know what a GT Score was. Next thing I knew I was in front of the Trainee of the Cycle Board. And ..I was selected! Recruiters told me to keep quiet, do it right the first time, and stay low.

    Future PFC here, the asvab had a few calculus questions. If you haven't taken calc 2, thats about 30 points lost. I took it and got a 96.

    The DD 214 shirt while talking about enlisting makes me laugh. Also worth noting that lots of local libraries have nice new ASVAB prep books.

    If you go to Bootcamp out of shape it increases dramatically the chance of you getting injured or suffer from extreme soreness.
    All the guys that were couch potatos and showed up to Bootcamp out of shape suffered injuries, from minor injuries and issues like shin splints and extreme soreness all the way to knee fractures and hip issues.
    Believe me, you don't to extend your Bootcamp experience for being negligent before joining. You don't have to become an athlete overnight but just make sure you run and train your body before you go.

    Prepare for the possibility that your relationship with your significant other (girlfriend) could end. If she truly loves you she will still be there, if not she wonโ€™t. Not all relationships are the same. Iโ€™ve seen both ends of the spectrum. Many relationships remained intact and some didnโ€™t. No matter what, always remember why you joined the Army and keep your eyes on the prize. Best wishes. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
