If you can't get anything other than 11B or 13F, go 13F. I theres any questions about what sort of poo poo you'll do, I'm more than happy to share. Don't go 11B.

It's funny you say this because as a former 11B I told a guy who was LOA'ing that if it got down to 13F and 11B to go 13F.

You can quote two posts in one bro it's okay.


I was serious about the get out part though, there's no reason to re-enlist after your contract is up as a linguist; get a cushy Fed job as civilian and do beard things

man that gravy train has pretty much dried up if you're not either more than 3/3 with a college education OR you're a 3/3 that also brings serious other SIGINT poo poo to the table, PLUS a degree if you're looking to get out in one term. For Army chances are good you won't learn poo poo and you'll be in some tactical nightmare dump, Marines you'll probably go to rad bn (lol, good fuckin luck), for air force/navy you guys there's a chance in hell if you can give a good blowjob and figure out the system in order to get what you want. air force/navy rules apply for army and marines at the rsocs or whatever they call those places now.

I don't know if your poo poo is still going on, but I read this MILPER today and figured it might be helpful, and save you from being a ground pounder with hosed up knees and spine.

You'll need CAC access, and the pertinent poo poo for language school is near the end, but there's also poo poo up near the top for people with top secret clearances.

My company just got someone that for whatever reason didn't successfully graduate from DLI as a 35P and became a 35N instead. Although Guard vs. Active, it's probably a completely different situation.

Nothing terribly exciting, an Airman born in Northern Europe shows up to the mass urinalysis with really light hair on top and slightly darker on the sides, a sergeant thinks he bleached his hair or something and pulls a 341 (lol).

I have only ideas on this one all of them dumb. 1) They got tired of idiots leaving their backpacks by the sidewalk and having to tell us every goddamn Monday and Friday to move them; unlikely because offpost people still get to leave their crap there. 2) Everyone trampling through that area twice a week and leaving our poo poo there turned the slope into a huge mud pile and some moron slipped and fell and ruined their blues; doubtful but hilarious to imagine. 3) They just planted grass there and want it to grow in; likely based on how much the AF loves appearances over actual functionality.

Most likely reason though is because

Yeah man, been here for about a year now and they've been checking ID's this whole time. Some unlucky prior service usually has to go up there later at night, so maybe that's why your friend never gets ID'd.

Edit: Non-prior =/= prior service

Yeah I've been here for just under a year as well. Never seen it, never hear it talked about. Guess it just happens after my friends and/or I leave. Not much point to stay at the patio late since they stop selling booze at 8 or whatever.
