Hey all,

I just talked with the local Army Recuters, and I got a carrer reserved for 7 days, MEPS is on Monday. I can not wait but nervous at the same time.

What Branch and Job title do you guys have?

As of right now, I am 91P Artillery Mechanic. During MEPS I am hopeing to get 91B Wheeled Mech, or something else in Mechanics (tracked, heavy equipment, Diesel of some sort) or computers.

But if all else fails, and I am stuck with 91P (not at the top of my list but not the last) I will so Basic at Ft. Jackson and AIT at APG Md. Basic date so far is June 23.

A big thank you to Ryan Ronning for answering some of my questions!!!!!

Looking for a FORD.

we will see how meps goes.... I might be color blind, so that might hold me back...... I hope not, I just hope (from what I hear) if my asvab score and other medical scores are high enough, them might over look it. I have also heard I can try for a medical waivier? I have always done bad on the dots test, but I can do fine on other tests
