So I am going to my second meeting with my recruiter in the morning (Army). I have started getting physically and mentally prepaired for it.
Took a practice ASVAB tests, did pretty good. (dont remember the scores, recruiter said it was good, would have good options)
I was wondering if anyone had some advice, insight, or anything.
I will be honest, I read the timetable, what happens when, all of that. I still cant imagine what to expect. I know its going to hurt, suck, be boring
at times, repetative and all that. Thats not what I am worried about.
What are the best jobs, whats the best way to get promoted (really), how would an average guy get into officer school, how long and what do I have to
do, /would help, to that end. When do enlisted people even go to school? How much time do we really get to ourselves after basic, after specialty
Things like that are what I want to know. I dont know if I can trust a recruiter to answer that honestly.
I cant really get my head around this next bit. I read and talk to people, but this doesnt make sense:
If we want to be officers we need school, ok, It doesnt seem possible to get that education once enlisted, so how do people do it?
Mostly this is my nerves looking for something to focus my mind on.
Also, I am 32 YO. I am going to be the old man right? Is that very bad?
any advice would help.
Thanks in advance.
