    Well it time for me to say good bye for few months..........

    I leave for MEPS on Sept 7 and basic training on Sept 10.
    I will be going to Fort Jackson in South Carolina for basic training.
    Then i'm off to Fort Gorden in George for 3 weeks for common core training!
    Then i have my choice of places for the rest of the 14 weeks of MOS training.

    I will be trained as a 31Romeo .

    So wish me luck and i will talk to you guys in a couple of months.:D

    Best of luck. If you find yourself needing company, drop a PM my way - I'm not too far from Mississippi, and I'm sure myself and other THR members in the area would be happy to provide some leisure time activities. :D

    31-R; Multi-Channel Transmissions Operator?!

    What does that mean in English? Do you dig differing ditches for Powerglides, Turbo-Hydramatics, and 4-speed manual trannys?

    Not to denigrate your presumably well-considered choice, but I hope they explained it to you better than the Army URL you provided explained it to me!

    Best of luck to you.

    One question. I'm aware of an Army basic training facility at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. You might check the destination on your ticket.

    Good luck in Basic, AZTOY....

    ...what 31-Romeo REALLY means is that, as a private, he'll be digging latrines and doing KP, but they'll let him carry the company radio while he does it.... :evil:

    AZTOY......been there done that.
    I also had basic training at Fort Jackson.......way back when we were still issued M-1 Garrands.......you're also gonna learn about "Drag A$$ Hill", double timing up that bugger with your rifle at high port just ain't much fun. :D

    I also went to Fort Gordon for field radio repair school and later to Avionics school.
    At least you're not going to be at those places in July/August, so it won't be quite so hot and humid.

    Looking forward to hearing from you on your return. Good Luck.:)

    Good luck. Do what you're told, don't volunteer for nothin', and keep your mouth shut when appropriate. It's always best to be 'the gray man'. If the Drill Sergeants get your name into their heads, you can bet it won't be as enjoyable an experience as it could otherwise be.

    Good luck to ya! Remember, you get out of it what you put into it.

    Oh, and trust me on this, don't go out drinking till 0300 the night before reporting to MEPS! I did (it was called AFEES then) and I do believe that was the longest day of my life! ;)

    Good luck, I wish I could be going with you.

    Oh yeah, Ft. Jackson? Enjoy "Tank Hill":evil:

    Good going, young fellow. I wish you only the very best, and a safe and healthy homecoming. May only good things happen to you.

    I think I had one of those MOS numbers when I was in the Army. Only it was 50 years ago, before digital, before M16's and almost before Custer. My title at the time was "intermediate speed radio/telephone operator." But it was two-channel . . . had a pair of crystals in every radio.
