B and I have been spending time visiting recruiters. Today, we saw a Sargaent with the Army, and B has made his choice. He will go active, full time, into the Army. I got the basics today. He will go in as an E3 because of his 2 years with ROTC. He will get paid, we got the salary part, the G.I. Bill part for school, housing, food, where he could possibly go (Sgt said Hawaii and I was like, YEAH! LOL! - you'd have thought it was me going LOL!). He told B how he would probably spend the first 30 days questioning why he went, because obviously, boot camp is going to be tough. He got his ASVAB scores (35) - reviewed them, and put together some job options. We have yet to decide on that one, but I'm thinking he'll choose something administrative. Obviously, because of his record now (he was picked up last winter for several counts of theft, plus another theft thing), he can NEVER do anything that requires clearance (i.e. Military Police) but that's OK. Obviously, the Sgt is going to make things sound fabulous, and he did a fine job of that. He's 26, with his own house - going to retire at 40, talking about all this money he has. The bonuses you get, etc, etc. BUT, IM not stupid LOL! I know there's fine print, there's other things, plenty of other things, I have yet to hear. Soooooo - anyone care to share the good stuff with me? What should I be doing for myself and B to prepare? What will he really need to be working on now? What do we need? What should I be asking? Urgh, my head is spinning.... Thanks!
