I'm a 12K that has airborne on contract. I have orders to Germany report soon after this. What would happen if I didn't make it or failed airborne? Would they take Germany away?

If the unit itself isn’t an Airborne unit, then it shouldn’t matter. However, don’t go into it worrying about failing. Go with the mentality of passing the course.

Get your mindset squared away.
Instead of worrying about failing jump school, focus on how fast you can get to an airborne unit after the German leg unit. Otherwise, what's the point?

Is there a reason you think you won't pass? Airborne school isn't hard. Pass the APFT and keep your feet and knees together and you'll be fine.

SPC (Join to see) - I've been around for a while and I've never seen an instructor at a school fail someone on purpose. You may get a tough grader but that's just life. And the idea that they purposely fail people so others can get in is incorrect. When people fail the APFT, others not in the class don't get to join the class.

My advice to anyone taking the APFT is "Don't train for the minimum". If you need 42 to pass, make sure you can do 70. A tough grader may not count your last 10 but by that point you're well past 42. Good luck.
