Virus, I have been bugging my recruiter about getting airborne even before I went to meps. I hate to bad mouth him but he is one of those that like to do as little work as possible.
I talked to him today and he said he had looked into it and that they were only offering airborne to 91b. I just think he doesn't want to do the work. He gave me the speech of "once u get to ur unit keep asking for airborne".
I never received an orientation after DEPing, I'm supposed to do some classes and a pt test so I can one more rank before I ship but he hasn't even explained what I need to be doing.
Going above his head wouldn't do much good as his commander is also lazy. It took 2.5 months for me to go to meps after my initial visit to the RS, and I was easy, no criminal, drugs, 93 on asvab all line scores over 120. Had all my paperwork with me etc. I couldn't have made it easier for them.
I have been working on maxing out the APFT cos I heard that in AIT they take the people with the highest pt scores for airborne. But even then they only take about 10 out of 300.
Wish I would have had a recruiter that really cared, like you seem to do virus.
