20 days until I leave for basic training. I'll be gone for 9 weeks and roughly 4 days. I won't have a computer during that time so, you guys probably won't hear from me til Im done. Not like it's really a big deal, but yeah. Just thought I'd let everyboy know. The day is coming. Much faster than I expected.
O boy! I get to rule uncontested...lol.
Haha, pretty much. Don't abuse it though or so help me god I'll...I'll...uhm...I'l PM you about it! lol
Good luck, Kev! Don't worry, I'll keep things ticking over here...:doh:
Wow good luck man!
Good luck! the best advice I can give is to be like Forest Gump. Do exactly what is asked of you, nothing more, nothing less. Basically try not to think just act and you will do fine. And in the end the mental stress far outweighs the physical. I learned things in boot camp that I apply to challenges on almost a daily basis. And that was almost 19 years ago.

Well, today is the day. I may come back on here at some point today, but it's not likely. I'll see you guys in 9-10 weeks. :thumbs:
Good luck man. :thumbs:
Really wishing you luck. Not many people have the balls to go through with something like that.
Most don't know, really, what they're doing. Of course maybe today there
is more of a heightened knowledge, but for the most part, they are
So much for that. I got disqualified for my security clearance I needed for
my job (Top Secret clearance was required). I don't know the details, but
now I had to re-sign up for a different MOS that won't require a clearance
PERIOD. Therfore, looks like I'll be hanging around until November 5th.
:cussing: :cussing: :cussing:
Not all bad though. I get to be with my wife and son for a while longer. :thumbs:
good on ya man. at least u got balls to go out and do it. im thinking of sighing up for the marines but...idt they will take me. i cant stand or run or walk for a very long time. i have a bolt in my foot cuz i had flat feet...i hope i get in but...lifes a bitch some times.
Sorry to hear that, Satty.
Security clearence can be a nightmare, especially high level clearence, as you really do need to be whiter than white most of the time. Even things you never thought would effect you, often do. Such as family members, speeding tickets etc.
Im a black man in a white mans world though :laughing:
Very good, lol.
Which brings me on to another point....It seems that if you represent any sort of minority group (in the UK at least), clearence wouldn't be an issue...
Seems like it sometimes. Teggy, you aren't black.
No. But he listens to Rap music, lol.
And Newports...and pot.
hey bub sorry to hear about the clearance thing, atleast they let you know before you left. i had friends who we're stuck in training status for months away from their family just to find out that the job they signed for needed a higher clearance. but when you do the biggest piece of advice i can give you is to make friends and kiss ass. as horrible as it sounds it's the truth. my buddy and i went unnoticed the entire time untill thanksgiving came around and got requested by a command chief ha. but in all honesty it's 90% mental so you should be alright.
