Talking Newly enlisted

Hey all!

Just wanted to drop in and say hello to all the military members on here. I just enlisted in the Wyoming Army National Guard as a 12M. I ship to basic the first week of September and couldn't be more excited!

I am ready for this next chapter in our lives, and I look forward to talking with you guys more.

I was going to ask how in the heck you got 12mike. I have never seen a 12M (at least conus), Maybe you got it cause you went NG...

Welcome to the club....

Where you going for basic?

Your not pushing the limits of your jeep until your on your side, then something breaks and it's time to go home.

I had given up all hope of getting that MOS until one opened up in Wyoming. I wasn't sure about the commute for drill and whatnot, but decided to bite the bullet. So now I will have to drive almost 4 hours one way...oh well.
I will be at Ft. Leonard Wood for BCT and then Goodfellow AFB for AIT.

Thanks for the welcome! I'm a little nervous being 27 and all, but it will definitely be worth it!

Shouldn't be too bad of a time of year, a little cold maybe.

That's kinda what I figured. Never had the pleasure to be up that direction before. I'm used to cold though...had two weeks straight here that were -40 when I would go to work. Didn't get above -20 all day lol. Wish I could bring the Jeep with me, though it's not like I won't be busy haha

I was at GFAB for my AIT as well, way back when. There's nothing outside of post besides a strip club, a tattoo parlor, a nasty night club and cheap hotels. and tumbleweeds.

It's still a good time. Get ready for tornados, formations, and heat.

Wow. 12M has to be one of the hardest MOSs to land. When I was with the California Guard, out of 32,000-ish Soldiers in the state, we had 6-8 firefighters.
