    8 weeks fort jackson
    16 weeks sam houston
    2 weeks benning for jump school

    10k bonus, 4 years. Ship February 4th.

    I'd like to thank everyone on the board for giving me information on enlistment and advocating that I finish college and go for commission. Due to money and other factors, I chose to enlist and finish my college later. I can always apply for Green to Gold.

    My goal is to ultimately join SOCOM and receive ASI W1 special operations medic training, finish my enlistment, return to college and finish my BS and apply to medical school. I was unable to get ranger training in my contract, and I understand I could be deployed before RIP. But I will volunteer for RIP at benning.

    Yes I am already waking up at 5 am and going on runs and doing calisthenics.

    Basic is 9+1 (reception) weeks long unless they changed it in the past few months.

    Don't be stupid and get married at AIT. One of my friends from basic is there and said another guy from our basic platoon got married two months after being there to a girl he met there. Supposedly that happens alot at Ft Sam Houston.

    Dude, I hate to say this, but Ft Sam is the Army version of Peyton Place. I went there twice, once when I reclassed to mental health, once for BNCOC. Didn't matter. It is a soap opera starring you.

    Get off post, see the Alamo, see the Riverwalk, see a Missions ball game if you are there during the season. Have a couple dates and enjoy.
