Roperchick is okay, got a dose of military discipline that's all....which sometimes happens to the very best (which I'm sure she is)..... |
Frankly, it's getting tougher to have a career in the military with downsizing and all.
Hey chick long time no see (read) haha. Yeah. I definitely got a nice kick in the butt from the army...but it happens to everybody at some point. It was a good wakeup call though ill tell you.
The army is still a good choice....just be careful with it, make sure you get ALL the details before coming in and really make sure its the choice you want.
Don't settle. The army is in a position now where they can be really picky and selective. Its not like it was a couple years ago when I joined, where they were pushing to get people in, offering all kinds of jobs and bonuses.
Now, they arent offering ANY bonuses, theres no changing an MOS, retention officers no longer get a pat on the back if they get over quota for reenlistment...now they get dirty looks.. even us that are already in are having a hard time convincing the army to keep us.
They just basically FIRED 9 E-8's and E-9's. Were talking the big dogs, top of their game. Army is starting from the top and kicking people out.
So when you do go in, make sure your sh*t is straight. Don't have ANYthing they can nitpick and beat on. Make them WANT to have you in.
Glad things are going good for you. Keep working hard, have a spotless record with good references and youll do great in life, and the army down the line.
