    One of my good friends is in his final year of Army ROTC, I lived with him during first two years or so.....let me know if you want to know anything


    Glad you picked ROTC thats what I did(Air Force though)....I met some west pointers and they were a bunch of ****** ring knockers. I've met some alright WP guys.....but the dooshbag is strong with them. And I can say that before anyone gets on my ass because I'm a pretty chill guy and respect all the branches... but they've blown it

    We did cut back...then they said they need more for whatever reason. And the wheelin is great here, especially if you have a 4 wheeler. Hunting is good, fishing is good.

    I was Air Force and retired in 1994. Untill you make 0-3 keep a low profile and learn learn learn because theres nothing worse than a butter bar thinking he or she knows EVERYTHING and can change the world.
