            Congratulations! I think it's going to be an adventure you're going to enjoy (most of it, anyway). Prayers for your safety.

                  We do "dig" vets. This is true. What more could we want than a white knight (soldier who'd defend our country) next to our side? Bravery, self-discipline, determination, and so much more to offer. Good call DevilSpawn!

                    Congrats Knight!

                    You have chosen a path few are willing to choose. You will be very surprised the opportunities available to you.

                    Although i'm sure you will enjoy Airborne school and Ranger school if you pass the indoc, leave your options open.

                    Your first four years make sure you get some college under your belt, for a few reasons. First, if you decide the Army isn't your calling you will have another option ready. Second, the Army will pay for your college, 100% as long as you pass your classes. Third, even if you decide the Army is for you, get your degree anyway, it will only help, especially if you decide you want to become an officer.

                    There are plenty of active duty and former military members on the boards here. If you have any questions, just ask. You can PM me anytime if there's anything you'd like to know.

                    Good luck and take care.

                          Good job mate. You'll do yourself and your country proud. And good choice on leaving it a while to train, you'll make it much easier on yourself and show up to impress your drill instructors.

And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high."

                            Wow man. That's a pretty big step. I was in DEP from April '02 until Aug '03 for the USAF. I don't know much about the Army besides they deploy a lot, but the one bit of advice I can give you is don't let your recruiter make everything peaches and cream. They get paid to make the big picture look like the Mona Lisa, but sometimes the big picture looks more like a cow with a bottle rocket tied to it's tail. Do as much research as you can. Go to basic training as mentally and physically prepared as you possibly can. Get in to the habit of "yes sir" "no sir".
