Yeah y'all need to watch the knees, I'm an avid runner (or i was I need to start up again) and one day my right knee would not bend without pain, so I went to the doc and he said I had runners/jumper knee. Basically my knee cap due to being bounced around allot will not track properly so some times when I bend my knee it hurts. I got that problem back when I was 14. fortunately it no big deal they have all kinds of stuff to correct it. but watch out any way.

I destroyed both my knees mountain biking (or actually doing a slightly controlled 30 foot drop on my bike, still got bloodstains on my truck seat from the drive home ), and was actually scheduled for surgery to repair a torn meniscus in my right knee, but a couple weeks before surgery they did one last MRI and it turned up clean, somehow my body had fixed itself. Yes, I am a miracle.

But anyway, definitely watch your knees, and your back, those are definitely sensitive items if you want a career in the military, especially if you're going to be in the field, they're going to get enough of a beating after you join, no need to start early.

Ok, I've talked with several people including actual recrutiers and guys who just got out of service and they have told me that what ever the recruiter tells you some of it might not happen. like if you score a 50 on you asvab test and the tell you that you can do any thing, you can but make sure you get it writting down in your contract with the army. So when i take my test which is in a year, and if i score good i'm going to make sure i get what i want in my contract and everything is writtne down becasue recruiters have quotas to fill. but if any one can help me with advice on what basic is like i mean how i can get in even better shape for my basic and my MOS training thanks

Tank..very preceptive...we had a saying in the air Force. How do you know when the recruiter is lying to you? His lips are moving!


You are absolutely correct! Get It In Writing On The Actual Contract Itself! any vocal or non written promises, or even written promises on anything but the actual enlistment contract go right out the door with you...

Also remember, when dealing with MEPS; the words "We don't have that option avalible right now" often come up. Don't accept a contract you don't want. Walk away, they will call you back.

As for Abn, you can get that guaranteed on your contract as well. Option20.
