Roffle, so true. If the OP thinks this is a PITA, he hasn't seen anything yet.

Well, they already messed up my vision waiver (I had Lasik), and I had to resubmit my surgery records, which put me out another month, and then the age limit changed and I could no longer apply to OCS because of that delay.

Then there was a Sgt there taking a medical along with me because they lost his entire medical history so he needed to start a new file all over again.

I'm just getting a taste of it. Now it's my turn to start my complaints.

I learned however only to complain to peers. Donít complain downward to those you supervise, and donít' complain upwards to those who supervise you.

Complain laterally

Then I found out I have to bring my birth certificate and SSN card with me to BCT, and my heart sank. I will never see them again, and it will be a pain in the *** replacing it. I'm ticked off about it. I don't need to be having records like that floating around when they know who I am already.

I'll just have to plan a head and get duplicates, or be ready to do so when they end up lost.

MEPS doesn't lose them, the OPM does.

yeah this is nothing. wait until reception. where is your basic and ait?

also, i dont know who has told you but. ALWAYS KEEP COPIES OF ANYTHING THE ARMY GIVES YOU.

at least 2 copies and put them in a folder. all my stuff is in a folder. make sure you copy your med records. that will haunt you when they lose it.

Always get copy especially when you get into reception and bct cause they tend to lose paperwork depending on where your going

This was my last post before I shipped to BCT as a SPC.

Six years, a deployment, three promotions/commission later the comedy still continues.

Getting in the officer's lane has kind of opened my eyes as to how things get jacked up. It is more entertaining.


The first salute I received was my first time in Korea. It was dark (remember I was 39) and I was a SPC. I just got out of Basic. It was from a SGM. He was not pleased in the least. An old SPC in the dark is commonly confused as a LTC.

I did give a legit Eisenhower silver dollar to my first legit salute though. It was one of the silver dollars my parents gave me from the year I was born.

Oh, then my second time to Korea for annual training I ran into one of the re-class SPC's that was in my AIT class. I was a 2LT. He was still a SPC.

Then when I got to my current unit as a new LT I ran into another guy I went to Basic with around my age (35+). He's only a SPC. Thankfully for him he's not in my unit (just drilling out of the same post).

Then, last month I went back to my old unit to do weapons qualification (I missed my unit's event), and ran into a PV2 I went to AIT with. 6 years later she's only managed to go from E1 to E2.

I have no beef with any of these folks. I just keep thinking "COME ON GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!! how hard can it be?????"

The USAR is a very low bar. It's there if you want. Just play the game. Everyone I ran into should have been SGT's or SSG's.

One kid I went to Basic with went in as E1, and now he's an active duty SSG. So I know my age and education isn't giving me a major advantage.

Just play the game.
