    went to go active duty a couple days ago as that my terminal leave from iraq eneded. Wanted t ogo active duty Psyop. (my current MOS) but the good ol army stuck it to me. Being prior service they subjected me to business rules for enlisting active duty, and with that i got fucked out of Psyop because i am not airborne qualified. They would not give me an airborne slot either in route to the unit.... but they were offering several other mos's that i could have that had airborne with them.... how can the army give me airborne and then retrain in a different mos, but not just give me that same airborne slot and let me keep my current one(which is low and they enlist people into every day) and save uncle sam the money of retraining? Fucking stupid IMO. So i sure as hell wasnt going to be no supply dude or 88m.... so, i went with 18x (SF recruit) I dont know if i have bitten off more than i can chew but will soon find out i guess. I ship out to benning for training for infantry reclass middle of next month. Then i have 5 weeks of Special Forces prep schooling, then airborne. After that i get to go to selection(4 more weeks) and then, if selected, start the "Q" course. If i get through to that point im going with medic as my choice of what to be. I am dissapointed that i did not get psyop simply because i was not airborne, but im stoked at this new oppurtunity. hooah.
