Default Finally got my ship date

Well, for those of you who dont know this, I am leaving Febuary 19th for Fort Benning Georgia for 17 weeks OSUT as an active duty 11X soon to be an 11Bravo (Infantry), on a 4 year contract, where I will attend airborne school and then hopefully RASP. I was lucky enough to score 95 on the ASVAB which helped me grap an airborne slot. I will be entering OSUT as an E-3. :)

I wanted make this post because I know there are a few people whove been trying to contact me over the past few weeks, and my responses have been somewhere between spotty and non-existant. I appreciate your patience, Ive been very busy with the enlistment process and the future soldier training program, an will continue to be. All trades Im currently involved in WILL be completed well within the given deadlines, again Im sorry for the lack of communication. I also may sell some of my inventory soon so my parents are left with a bit more space, just excess blanks and things to that effect, since I will have little opportunity to use them much for awhile.
Thanks all
Alex

Outstanding Hero!!! Going Air Born, Yah you be one hard core *Bleep Bleep*
Don't bother to making Family Proud, just make yourself Proud.
Also a bit of advice I give any recruit.. The Drill Sgt's are there just to Train you. They will get in your face. (or at least they use to in my day) they will call you every thing in the book and then some, but it is never Personal. They don't care about you beyond getting you trained so you don't come back on a CMH... (Coffin with Metal Handles)

Some others will think I am being harsh. No I am just prepping you for a time in your life that you will look back upon fondly.
Also one last thing.
Welcome to Army. and don't ever tick of the guys who fix your weapons.
