I am incredibly inspired by your dedication, hoping to be there one day, too!Wrapped up week 7 today. Passed the final PT test we took on Monday and spent the rest of the week blowing stuff up including some pretty cool non-standard charges. I find out my battalion on Wednesday and don the tan beret Friday.
Awesome brother, great fucking advice. Fired up to hell right now.I'm green now. last SITREP in this thread I think its time to let the other guys in here report in. The words of advice I can give is simple DON'T FUCKING QUIT. Every selection has a worldwide and I can assure you no matter how much pain you're in that worldwide relief is never worth it. I say this because you will walk past buddies of yours still in the course that see it through to the end just about everyday. It doesn't matter if the end goal is a scroll, tab, both, trident, or anything else quitting what you started is never worth it. If you sign the dotted line to do it, then fucking do it. It's harder than you think but not so hard that you can't do it.
Graduated from IDMT school last week and am now back at the home unit doing my initial training. Honestly glad to be back and doing real patient care. Now comes the hard part of not killing anyone and becoming a sponge.
Independent Duty Medical Technician. Allows an enlisted member to diagnose, prescribe medications, and develop plan of care for Active Duty patients. We also go through training to do Public Health, Bionenviromental and a lot of other smaller duties. The intent is for an IDMT to be the sole medical provider in austere environments that can set up medical assets as needed.IDMT? I've seen it before. What does it stand for, if I may ask?
My ship date got pushed to January! Perhaps we’ll see each other in OSUT. Look forward to doing so if we are in the same OSUT class.I'll be shipping to Benning in January as an 18X. Long way to go, but it feels good to finally have a start date. Thanks again to everybody who has contributed to this site, and good luck to all on your own paths. Let's go!
