There seems to be a few members of RallyPoint whose military service seems questionable based on statements made. When questioned about it, they usually do not respond. I'm not saying they aren't real vets, but is there a reason why someone wouldn't (or couldn't) verify their account? Just curious, because it seems easy to do and if its privacy issues you can always send in a redacted DD-214, and adjust your privacy settings.

UPDATE: Seems like there is some issues (at least with newer members) of having a problem verifying their accounts. RP Admins: Any suggestions?

AR 612-201, Chapter 6, paragraph 6-4, item (b) states: "The IET soldiers in AIT must apply for enrollment in the MACP to receive first unit assignment JD consideration. Enrollment will automatically provide the IET Soldier JD consideration with the spouse or TO THE SPOUSE'S LOCATION (IF MARRIED TO A PERMANENT PARTY MEMBER) PRIOR TO COMPLETION OF TRAINING". [...]

I have opted to go to the SOM Board for next month in preparation for the Promotion Board in September, and I know I need to be studying the basic material on paper, but I have heard that the NCOs of the board like to ask "situation based" questions. Can anyone give me some examples of those? Also, any advice I can run with would be much appreciated. This is my first board.

So, I've received an email giving me assignment ''instructions'' that to report to Fort Hood this coming February, BUT no pin point orders. Have any of you ever contacted a unit yourself in order to see if there is a billet, and have gotten assignment orders for that unit. My goal of becoming a Drill Sergeant did not happen because my branch manager said she doesn't assign OCONUS soldiers for Drill Sergeant duty. I have an itch to be an instructor of some kind and I found out that III Corps at Hood has an NCO Academy. Would be cool to see if I can get an assignment as an SGL. Any advice?

I like to ask these every so often. You have a stellar performer who isn't theirselves lately. They're slipping in performance as time goes on i.e being later to work, attention to detail not the same, & silly mistakes. Finally, the wheels come completely off the wagon. You pull them to the side to see what is going on. They share with you that they have severe marital problems and it really is severe. How would you support them? I don't mean becoming personally involved in their personal life, but what support would or could you provide them?

I think when I ETS'ed the first time around I started about 6 months out. Seeing that countdown hit double digits definitely put some pep in my step on rough days. Of course starting too far out probably has the opposite effect. Only 3326 days and a wake up for me!

Had a past diagnoses with ADD and though it is a private issue . It feels like I wouldn't be takin seriously as a co. Though I manage fine with out meds for 5+ years. I still have traces of it preplan I suck at but quick as a whip to changing condition. Forget desk work for me ( is that what an officer do?) . what I should choose enlisted or go to school for early commissioning.

I'm looking to get better at running and I understand that you must run more to get better. What do you recommend for a diet? What do you advise avoiding? Are the running shoes we wear make or break? My performance is in a serious slump and I can not figure this out.

What's the day to day life of an Aviation Warrant Officer. Whether you're flying or not. Just curious, looking for new career options.
