Well, I just passed the interview phase for Marine OCS. Pending my eyes check out since I had LASIK a handful of years ago, I'm going to shoot for aviation.

Im a Marine OCS grad, if you have any questions I'd be happy to answer em for you.

I just ran a PFT in late September. I got a 288 with the crunches and pullups maxed out. Ran so hard I threw up everywhere when I finished. Good times Laughing

Well im glad to bring back some memories. Wink

How long is your guys' run for your PFT? The Armys is 2 miles and what iv found that helps the most for me is 60x120's and attacking hills. 60x120's help alot with breathing and the hills help your muscles from fatigue.

Oh man... I'm gonna have so many questions eventually, I'm sure. I'm shooting for pilot, though I don't really want the F-18. Prefer helicopter. First thing is getting my eyes checked out because I had LASIK and they need to check how thick my cornea is.

I've gotta be able to do 3 miles in 18 minutes for a perfect score and minimum was a 23:00 I think. Or 24, not sure.

This goes for any of you as I assume it's the same in every branch, but do people look down on officers that only went through OCS that weren't part of enlisted before or NROTC/ROTC in college? I've heard both.

From my experience, it doesn't really matter. Iv liked officers that were prior enlisted and ones that weren't. Its all about how you treat your soldiers. From Officer to Officer I obviously have no idea how they view each other.

But we as enlisted look down to all officers, even though they make more money then us. Wink

It depends on the type of officer you are, if you realize you have alot less time in serivce than the NCO's under you and you are open to there advice, you will get alot more respect. But soldiers will still consider your "just a butterbar".

I mean being a mustang definitely helps your credibility, but if you're good at your job, you listen to your NCOs, and you don't act like your God's gift because you're an O-1, you'll be fine.

You shooting for the June 2013 class titans? If you are I might see you there.

3 miles. It's pretty tough if you run it fast. I hate running Laughing

Hills are the best kind of training. Training on hills consistently really makes you fly over the even surface.

Hopefully I'll be submitted for the June selection boards. Wouldn't leave until October.

Nice! For ets or pcs?!


Ive been in for three years and have two more years. Cant come quick enough! I absolutely hate my MOS (infantry). Deployment was cool, thats about it. I did kinda screw myself though, not just by chosing this mos lol, but I signed an IPCOT to do another tour with my unit. 2 cavalry regiment.....biggest joke of a unit. I do love Europe and have traveled to many awesome countries, but damn, im ready for it to be over haha!
