Good luck Gents.

I am neither 18x or Rep63 but I think posting here is still in the spirit of the thread (please delete or move otherwise).

This past Monday I swore sworn in to the ARNG (B co 1st Bn 20th SFG) as a prior-service NQP program soldier. The ship date is indefinite but probably May, depending on when they can line me up for PLDC, Abn, etc.

18x

I'm another 18x'er shipping on March 2nd. Looking forward to the challenge.

Just wanted to say thanks to all the BTDTs who've posted on this site and on socnet. All of the advice that I have read has helped a great deal and will be indispensible in my not so distant future.

If you are under contract and sign on to this thread after this post, PM The Crip. Just once, not every day.
