  1. I'm almost officially in the Army. I go to MEPs and get sworn in on Tuesday. I can't wait. Still not entirely sure on what I want to do though.

    As a former Army mechanic, TOW missile gunner, Fire direction control, Communications, Truck driver, I agree...avionics is the way to go!
  10. Good luck with your new career. IO was a MM in the Navy but have to say the way to go is in Intel. My youngest is in the intel field in the USAF and loves it. It has it;s pitfalls being a high stress field but it is aa field we are depending on more and more. Second field I say is avionics. Myself, I chose Mm due to be very mechanical and my high math ability so went with the nuclear MM route.

    One piece of advice is get what you want in WRITING because a recruiter will "lead" you astray as to telling you the "full" truth! BTDT!!!

    Best of luck to you. I started basic 43 years ago this month. Where does the time go?? Look for a MOS that has civilian applications.

    God Bless and Thank you. Your type is what makes us proud.
  15. Well, I learned that there are no more Option 40s left for this year. And the only thing available at the moment that isn't being a cook is Infantry, so when I go TO MEPs I'm going to look again and see if I can't get something else. But if I go 11X then I leave Aug 21st.
