Sunday morning, meet at recruiters office at 10:30. Wait around for the Marines who are taking forever. 11:30, ok time to get on the bus. Pensacola-Montgomery, normally less than a two hour trip, add about 4 stops, a 100 year old driver, and 3 and half hours later, we arrive at the hotel and 3. Drop off the marines that are shipping of the next day while the rest of us are takin to the MEPS to take the ASVAB. Kinda nervous but not really, expecting a near 3 hour test, finish in a little over an hour. Once everyone is finished we return to the hotel.
The staff, total dick heads. But the hotel itself was nice, pool tables, ping pong, pool, hot tub, PS3 and xbow 360 both connected to flat screen LCD tvs. Dinner was pretty good I guess, all you can eat buffet style. Morning call came at 4 am. Reported for breakfast at 4:30, breakfast was amazing, butt I regretted it 10 min later when I was starting to feel the ****s. 5 am the busses to MEPS rolled in, 5:05 we pulled out of the parking lot.
Off the bus and through the metal detector. Wait about 10 min in the briefing room. Guy comes in "blah blah blah" tells whats going to happen, already heard the routine a 1000 times. Passes out soem paperwork to everyone containing all their info. Now come the test, hearing-eyes-blood pressure-blood withdrawn for HIV-then the urine test. Three at a time, all 2 feet back from the urinal with our cups, about 6 inches apart from one another side by side, and the fat red headed doc watching us, of course I couldn't piss at all. Wait, wait wait, "ok son you got 1 more min". Ah ****, finally it comes to me. Next is the private physical with the doc. "Drop you shorts to your knees. Im thinking ok nothing strange just a normal physical. Next comes "bend over and spread your cheeks"
. After all is done go done with all my paper work to see the coun. He gives me my AFQT score-90 , M-87, A-87, G-92, and E-96. I pick out the top 5 jobs I want in electrical.
While going through my physical they seen I had a surgery as a kid, on the prescreen form I put records were no longer available. However before I could swear in they wanted a hospital statement backing my statement. So yesterday I got said paperwork and had my recruiter fax it up to them and I will go back up next week to swear in.
I was one of the first in line at the beginning of the day, so I was the first to see the air force counselor, however my day stoped there because I needed the hospital document beofre I could proceed any further. That was at 9:30 am. The bus back to Pensacola didn't arrive untill 4 Pm. So yea there was some waiting, waiting, and more waiting.
