Now it is only on you to not quit, barring an injury by Oct of next year you should have a tan beret on your head.Today I am happy to say that I went to MEPS and signed an 11x Option 40 contract with a ship date 20120604. This is one of the best days of my life but I know the road ahead is long, hard, and worth it. The ball is officially in my court.
That's what you asked for cback. And I'm OK with the decision I made. I think there was more anticipation leading up to it. I've been fine since.Fucking a man, that is too bad, can't help an injury though. Thanks for being a man and admitting to quitting.
I am a super smart dude! I never took Calculus 18 or Physics 9 or anything like that, but I learn quickly, I know how to pay attention, I have plenty of common sense and great attention to detail.Goddamn SL. That sucks hard. From what Ive seen, CTI is a good rate but be prepared to deal with some super smart dudes.
On my end: Found out today that Im probably not going to make it.
Any plans to try and go back?The SWCC class I was a part of started with 48 guys. Tomorrow, at 0500, they start the Tour with 13 warriors. The men that are left are all good, solid guys. I couldn't be happier to know they'll be going through it together. I really fucking hope they all make it through, there's no reason they shouldn't.
Anyone who thinks SWCC is an "easier way to get into SPECWAR" or is a primer course for BUD/S...I'd take those 13 guys and put them up against anyone in 1st phase of BUD/S without thinking twice. Just sayin'...
ETA: After watching Surviving the Cut and talking to a few of my buddies here in GLKS who are in Pre BUD/S, I realized that I didn't suffer an injury in Corondao. There are plenty of guys who have pushed through worse things than I experienced to get their respective pins. I was just not the guy to do it.
Negative. I'll be 30 in December. I don't want to have to wait 2 years and then try to get a bunch of waivers for being old as dirt. And I wouldn't be in it mentally either. I'm going to try and make the most out of my 6 year obligation and HOPEFULLY make a career out of the military. If not, so be it. But I won't be going back through any NSW pipelines in the future.Any plans to try and go back?
No shame in that. You tried, and you're still part of a fraternity that makes up less than one percent of the country. Thanks for all the info SLNegative. I'll be 30 in December.
