Hey guys, try not to fail out of class. LOA'd out and my two choices are 11B and 13F.

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.

Okay, what kind of topsy turvy world do we now live in where the Air Force regularly gets the shaft when compared to the Army?

That's just crazy, you are all supposed to be drinking starbucks and poo poo whilst chatting on your bluetooth and sitting on park benches reading your iPads whilst feeding the squirrels and pigeons and lamenting about summers past where you first discovered love on the flightline but are currently split up because the Colonel just didn't jive with young love because he's bitter about being broken up with on the flightline because love with the TSgt was forbidden but he still remembers the time they had together and if you just make an emotional appeal in front of all the other officers you'll melt his heart and fly off in an F16 together and eat sushi in Okinawa whilst the sun sets.

Hey, you 35P that either enlisted or reclassed, did you guys have a choice in what language you took? Or was it a case of hey, I want to sign up / reclass and I want 35P, oh wait, I don't want to learn tagalog, gently caress my life?

That's some solid bullshit, right there. So if I were to reclass, I'd basically get stuck with... Arabic, Pushtu or whatever the gently caress, and then if the seats are filled... Hebrew, Korean, or Chinese. I wouldn't mind Hebrew, and I could see the utility in Chinese and kind of Korean, but gently caress the rest of that.

To be honest I just don't like the sound of it. It simply sounds unpleasant to my ears. Also, the (greater) possibility of me getting sent to some shithole in the middle of assfuck nowhere only to sit in a guard tower trying to pretend to not be jerking off doesn't sound like a great time.

At least, that's the impression that I've gotten from arabic skilled army dudes. Still sounds better than combat arms though.

My friend just got pulled from Farsi Class and was given a choice of staying in the Army or leaving. She choose to stay and they gave her 35Q, Crypto network warfare specialist. All the Airforce people who got pulled with her are being kicked out, the navy guy is getting undezed status, and she got ultra secret computer hacker. I thought it was funny.

How the gently caress does that even happen? I mean, 35Q slots are booked out until April, I heard.

Yeah, you can totally do airborne as a 35p. There was even a re-enlistment bonus a while back (maybe still current) for airborne 35p's.

The requirements for you are the same as everyone else, just google example airborne packet and that should be enough, but you've gotta run it through your chain anyway so you might as well start there.

Keep in mind you may end up with some lovely, lovely assignments getting attached to super hooah gay wad units. Or there may be some good ones too, I dunno. So you might wanna check that too
