    I've wanted to do it for a while so now I'm doing it

    going in with 50 college credit hours. 4 years Army cav scout. I'll ship out in late January. I'm supposed to go sign sometime this week


    I havent worked out regularly in 2 years. Should I start jogging and doing sit ups now?

    Yep, and push-ups. The 19D does many a push-up in OSUT. If you don't make the initial PT screen, you'll be sitting at reception for a few extra weeks, and that's not appealing. Reception at Knox sucked.

    Eat as much as you want. Do not exercise.

    If you already have some college education, why don't you go into a field that you'll be able to apply when you get out?

    I want/need to take a break from school. I'm an econ/mathematics major and absolutely hate it and need to do something else before I kill myself.

    like I said I've wanted to join for a few years and I'm finally doing it. I do plan on going back to school when I get out
