Yesterday I received a phone call from my recruiter informing me that operations section had approved my request to move my ship date forward to April and my job request for RECON.
Words cannot describe how ecstatic I feel and my excitement to truly begin my journey to become a Marine and a member of the SOF community. Those of you that know my story are aware of the trials and tribulations I faced from my initial enlistment date until now- losing 30 lbs to be able to enlist, reaching levels of physical fitness I never knew I could attain in order to be approved ship to boot under an HZ contract, among other things. I know I still have a long journey ahead of me, but I could not have gotten to where I am now without the guidance of the veteran and active duty members of this forum. For that, I am eternally grateful.
