    anyone have any info on if a would have to go through Infantry Basic with the new enlistees? that would suck as an e5 to be treated as a pvt again.

    You'd have to go back to basic. I seen this happen. Our Basic training cycle at Benning had an E-5. Everyone would yell, "At ease" whenever he came out to do something. :rofl:

    infantry basic is OSUT. its basic and ait in one. its 14 weeks total. you would come in at week 4 or 5 and you would be able to go out at night after training is over and stuff. you also will sleep in a seperate room then the recruits and you will have a tv and other shit. at least thats how it was for guys like you when i went thru.

    another option is going to SFAS, they take any MOS. you would then start the Special Forces training pipeling upon successful completion of SFAS.

    But she agrees to Infantry? SF soldiers are better trained, better equipped, and work with a higher caliber of teammates than normal infantry units. You are less likely to be killed in combat as a member of a SpecOps unit than working with a normal grunt unit.

    After doing 9 years signal in the Army I can fully understand that. I was a 31f; not sure what it is now.

    you are treated completely different than the new enlistees since you are prior service. when my husband came back in and had to go through 19k (tanker) training, i believe he was referred to as an insert.

    What don't you like about signals? I want to lat move to 26xx (Marine Corps signals intel) but I've had a hard ass time trying to find anymore information than the generic paragraph typed on on about.com.
