Hello everyone, I couldn’t find anything that covered this recently so I decided to ask. I’m having issues with getting an option 40. I brought my dad to the recruiters office when I went because he would just give em the killer eyes and that basically told the recruiter to skip the theatrics. He’s a retired sf guy so I thought it would be smart to listen to him about how to go about this obviously. They told me at first that they’re out Bc of how COVID slows all the schools down so I said I’m willing to wait as my father suggested. Then after I confirm my asvab score Bc I red flagged Bc I jumped 20 or more points from the practice test, which they really should tell you to take serious because it decides your base line and if you need to verify (retake the test completely in person at meps) your score. Thankfully I did better than the first time my GT: 123 afqt : 89 which my recruiter was really excited about which made me think he had something lined up. Wrong, actually the options got worse. The rules have changed for option 40 as it’s no longer available, because so many dudes would take it just for the airborne slot and then pussy out before rasp so now you can only work for it in basic? Is this true? I could also be assigned as an 11c which i don’t know if it’s any different but I want to be 11b anyways, and better yet they’re out of those contracts too! How are you out of the most basic infantry contract ? Why is this such a cluster fuck?
