    So Wednesday night i went to Fort Hamilton Meps station to take the asvab and DEP into the army the next day. Waking up early is not my thing:wtc:. Physical went without any complications and i was surprised how easy it was for me to get what i wanted on the contract. Now the wait begins, ship date 8/21. :noes::noes::noes:

    hell i got airborne and the option 40, thats what i wanted. I read on some forums that depending on the army liaison they did not want to give out option 40, plus i had a bad fracture of my ankle and fibula when i was younger so i thought i would not get a go on the physical. Especially when i went to get airborne qualified and the second doctor did not want to sign.

    thats the way to do it. i was supposed to leave some time in the fall, and about 3 days before, my recruiter asked me if i wanted to go on june 6th instead. so i went to my graduation ceremony on the 6th in the morning, and then left to meps when i got home from that.
