Went down and talked to the recruiter today and he took the ASVAB. They let him take a practice at it and he scored a 90 on it! He wants to be Infantry so he is right in line with what you guys initially posted. I want him to go down and talk to an Army recruiter as well just to check on his other options in life. I am pretty sure he wants to be a marine. Will keep you guys posted. A while back before the election he told me he wouldn't join if Hillary got elected. :mrgreen: That's my boy!

Intelligent young man, I know you are one proud dad. He could take the easy way, or he could earn that EGA. In todays .mil, hardest induction there is.

Our son is almost at the three year mark, still with the 1/3.

Yes, sounds like he's going to Battalion Recon, tough unit. Is he going to California or North Carolina?

Congrats! That's an accomplishment in itself. I know your one proud Dad.

I think his question pertains to his MOS school, if it's east or west coast. It's my understanding that after you pass selection course, you wind up training all over before getting a PDS slot.

Either way, wish you guys the best holidays, after this he will be a long way from home for quite a while.
