A friend of mine just came back from West Point on leave, and I was asking him about the Airborne School at Ft. Benning. I told him that I had planned on bucking for Airborne when I joined the Army, and hoped to get a permanent position in the 82nd. He told me that lately the Army has been trying to push everyone they can through BAS and it's almost become kindof a joke in the Army community. Is there any truth to this? If so, I'm kindof dissapointed that such a great resource to the US Army has become a rush job.
