I've noticed it's been over 6 days since the last post on these forums. With a school vacation because of Christmas & New Year I expected a lot more questions. I know there are plenty of people listed as being online & onsite.
Don't be shy. The only stupid question is the one that goes unasked. Admin & I are standing by to answer even stupid questions (I hope you don't mind us laughing at you, lol) If you have no questions at least tell us what Santa brought you. He skipped my house when I wanted a new Glock .45. He knows I only have two hands & already own two handguns, lol. I'm taking advantage of my state's new concealed carry law.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas. We did in my household. I want to wish everyone a happy New Year. I know at least a few of you will be shipping in 2012 & the best of luck to you. Although you might not think it while you're in BCT/AIT/OSUT but you made the right choice in joining the Army. If nothing else you'll have a steady job for the time you're in. And who knows? Maybe you'll even learn something in the Army.
If you're still in high school or college don't wait until you graduate to contact a Recruiter. It gets pretty nutso in June. You can be in delayed entry for up to a year & you certainly won't ship to basic in less than 6 or 7 months after signing your contract (in most cases) anyhow. The Army won't send you to BCT until you graduate in any case.
