As many of you know I was waiting on Scroll; it came through mid September. Now, I was told that I have to wait for Commissioning Orders to wear my 2lt rank. I am anxious and just ready for everything to come to fruition. I honestly thought scroll was the last road block for me. Does anyone have any insight on this process? Also after the orders, when does the pay start?

UPDATE: I signed my contract and took the Oath of Office the same day scroll came in.

They're published after HRC receives your signed da 71 and contract. You're a 2LT as soon as you sign your 71. That said, pay for active duty can be really delayed. Reserve is as soon as HRC is updated and you often can't drill at your enlisted unit anymore.

LTC Stephen C. - Sir, I've been told to start training for either my air assault or air borne wings. I'm terrified but willing to do the work.

I actually thought jumping was a lot of fun, 1LT (Join to see). You'll get excellent training there, so when you get to jump week, there's really nothing to it. Your training will kick in and everything simply becomes reflexive. Just make sure that you're in excellent physical condition. Most people that wash out are simply not in shape.
Reach out to CPT(P) Ashley Carson, and get some more current pointers from her. When she made that jump she only weighed 110 pounds (she told me that!), so size isn't always a factor like you might think.
I vote for jump school, so get yourself to Fort Benning! Airborne All The Way!

There isn't much I wouldn't do to go to Benning for jump school if my board is successful. I am an old guy though, and I doubt they would be able to find me a slot. A guy can dream though!!

1LT (Join to see), I just stumbled onto this old thread accidentally. So what happened? Did you go to either jump school or air assault school? Let us know how you did!

I would caution to be patient, but after reading this has been a yearlong odyssey for you, I would inquire with the S1 folks on this. This seems like situation that just needs a discussion concerning you future. Always recall the best person to take care of your career is YOU!!!!!!!
