Well, finally got into OCS, Graduated, branched MI with detail in Chem. Im over half way through CBOLC and I am trying to find out if anyone has info on CRD slots with 10th Group or any other SOF units (I'm currently headed to Fort Carson upon completion of course). Any information or contacts would be greatly appreciated.

I got a tattoo back in early 2014. It is a statue of liberty on my Left arm it extends past my wrist bone 1 inch. I remember taking pictures of it when the new regs came out as the tattoos we had previously were gonna be "grandfathered". So now I have since been in the reserves 4 years and Have now been selected for Warrant Officer active duty and now this is becoming an issue. It is an issue because my reserve unit never uploaded the document into my Iperms... So there is no record of me having it. I got a Tattoo Validation Memorandum signed by my commander and gave it to my recruiter and he said it was forwarded up to USAREC for "approval"??? Has anyone ever gone through this? Am I screwed??

Hello, I am thinking of becoming a 35P after I graduate high school, and I was wondering if it would it be possible to have a note of which language you would like to take. At the moment I am (non-formally) studying Polish, which is not on the critical language list. I am not sure whether or not it would be wise to put Polish as a request or to request a similar, critical language, like Russian or Serbo-Croatian, if it is possible to indicate your preference at all.

The full time component Soldiers will have daily opportunities to practice the events that will be included in the test. It is already a challenge to get RC Soldiers to pass the current test. I believe the national average is under 80% (I have been in units where the BN average was as low as 74%). An now we need to try and find a way to train on deadlift and medicine ball tosses? "Well get a gym membership", is a likely response. And for some that is a legitimate option, but for many that COA is constrained by budget concerns as well as the reality of time constraints that comes with juggling two careers. If you are not in the Reserves (and I assume NG) then you really can't appreciate how much time is spent between your40-50 hour job, Military obligations outside of drill weekends, and for some, throw in school.


It used to be fairly easy, if you had the motivation, to get up 45 minutes early and go for a short run or crank out a few sets of push ups or sit ups, or do some core exercises. Now what...GO to the back yard with your medicine ball that you somehow acquired and toss it about? I don't know that many who have a full set of weights in their home. I have a small set of bar bells and a kettle ball that I use, but not for deadlifts.


It will be interesting to see where passing score averages go when this becomes fully implemented.

I haven’t left for basic yet but I have received rsp pay and I realized that I would better enjoy my time in the military if I was Air Force, is this possible since I haven’t even gone to basic yet? I am supposed to leave for basic in a little under two weeks.

How likely is it that a wavier would be approved for an re code of 3 for the airforce? I'm considered glossary non prior. I was in basic and a non cancerous tumor was found in my back that stopped me from being able to do PT because of the placement. I have had surgery and got it removed.

I am just a regular M-Day soldier in the TXARNG, currently working as a DoD contractor for the Air Force. Since graduating AIT I regretted not going active duty and I have wanted to find a way to be full-time in the Guard. I understand that the AGR program is pretty much locked to E4-promotable and above so that is not in my sights at all yet. So the technician program sounds like the next best thing. One thing that I was wondering is does any time spent in this type of position count as active duty since it is Title 32? Or does it strictly count as civil service?

Isn't it all basically the same skill set? Why the differentiation or duplication? Why is there a special school for SOF? Is it really that much different/better?

I have been told that enrolling in the active duty course (4 months) is not offered anymore. Apparently it is now broken up into phases (1-4) with two distance learning phases and 2 "resident" phases. What are the difference in the distance learning course and the active duty course? Can I certify in NET+ and SEC+ during the online portions or resident portions? Do those masters degree credits transfer anywhere else other than Webster University? Do you get paid for completing the online portions?

I’m a 68C and I am looking to reclass to CA. I’ve commited to enjoying the suck of working shift work and still getting in shape for CAAS and have started doing the THOR3 plan. I’m looking for guidance as to what kind of activities do I need to be prepared for for CAAS and the CAQC. I know CA is pretty tight lipped about the selection and the Q-course, which is a good thing. I’m just looking for a more general what kind of physical activities I need to prepare for. 68C work in hospitals so moving from MEDCOM to FORSCOM is gonna be an entirely new beast. Do I need to be proficient at Climbing ropes? Swimming? pull-ups/Chin-ups? Anything I haven’t said. Also, I know the requirements are a 240 pt score but what would be score that most candidates would be hitting before heading to CAAS? Just so I can better gauge my own preparedness.

My battalion S-1 is insisting that I can't be the rater of the WO1 who is double-slotted with me, even though I'm a CW3, and the detachment commander (since rotated out) asked me to. I can't find anything in the regulations that addresses this. Who's right?

I just got approved for reclassification from 11B to 68C, and am looking for every bit of helpful information I can get. I know there's some information out there already, but I'm trying to get the most recent and up to date info I can from any 68Cs that have been through it.

I'm not slotted to leave for phase I until May of next year, is there any idea of when I will be able to know my phase II site? Is that given during phase I, or will I know beforehand? I read that it depends on the time you go to phase I, but I don't know if that's true or not.

What is daily life like? Do the majority of 68Cs go to a hospital setting or FST, etc.

What should I do with the almost 10 months I have before beginning school. I've read about studying up on anatomy and physiology, as well as pharmacology. Does anyone have any particular books that would be helpful? Maybe specific NCLEX study material? Just whatever you think would be helpful to study so that I could get that edge before I begin the school would be great.

Also, for reclassing, is there any say or requesting a duty location after the phase II? I wouldn't think so, but if there's a chance there is that would be incredible.

Thank you in advance.
