It's alright here, down fridays are cool, Basic was easy, CZee sucks. Talk to you bishes when I can
hit up the casinos when you phase up....
What made BT so easy? Lack of PT?
what uh, branch are you in?
What career field?
For some good food hit up the Mellow Mushroom and The Shed
Plan on it
Lack of PT, my MTI was really laid back, and a bucnch of other crap made it pretty easy. The only tough part that is still tough is being away from my wife
Air traffic control
She is now able to live with you at Keesler right?
Everyone's experience @ BMT is different. The weird thing is that everyone I've talked to says BMT is easy AFTER they've been through it. During BMT can be a different story
Love you too.
P.S. I already made a thread about you silly. http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=3330650
Also try Lookout 49, and just about anything in downtown Ocean Springs.
what sq where u in for BMT? also, who was your TI?
Good luck with ATC school; take it seriously too, i know some1 who dropped out real fast when they slacked off a little
331 with SSgt Ramirez. The school aint no joke but I think I'll be alright.
My tech school is technically under 20 weeks so that is a negative
ATC???? Fuck, I'm sorry man. Stay on top of it and you'll do great. Don't forget that they'll wash your ass out even after tech school. So if you make it through tech school, that's a huge accomplishment, but don't relax.
30% wash out rate in school and 30% in field, I think its the highest in the air force but I may be mistaken
I've actually been told that by folks out here at Kadena too. Good luck out there.
True story. While I was an MP, we would get aguments from all the units on base who would stay with us for 3 months at a time standing posts and what not. I can recall on more than one occassion getting guys from ATC that when they were through working with us, they would go back and have a test back at ATC, if they failed it, they got kicked out and sent to do some dumb job.
negative...here at dli we have the highest washout rate
in my language its about 75%
Don't believe that for a second. I'm not giving you a license to slack here, but my wife is AF ATC, and if she had her way, she would have washed out several noobs already. Unfortunately, some of the SNCOs take this whole "Kinder Gentler Air Force" bullshit to mean that we can't kick people out for sucking at their job, so the shitbags who couldn't separate a C-130 and an A-10 in 500 miles of open airspace are still in, screwing shit up.
Just to blow everybody's minds, I used to work with a guy who was an Arabic linguist, who cross trained into ATC. Talk about a man who likes to be tortured.
