I'll keep this short, because I haven't slept for roughly 31 hours and I'm about to go out and catch a movie (and probably fall asleep), but I just thought I'd let everyone know that I passed the physical.

I have enlisted as a Linguist. Basically, I'll be taking a test next Saturday that will determine which languages I qualify for. Depending on how I do on that test, I will be able to choose the language that I will spend 53 weeks learning fluently.

I will be going to Fort Jackson, South Carolina on October 30, 2002 to complete nine weeks of basic training. Upon finishing basic training, I will be transferring to Monterey, California for my Advanced Individual Training, where I will learn the language I choose at that time based upon the languages I qualify for this upcoming Saturday.

Upon completing AIT, I will then have four more years to serve as an interpreter, interceptor, translator, et cetera.


So there you have it.

Bravo, Jeff, I'm glad to see it. Not only do you get to work in the field you want, but your profession is a needed one: not everyone is fluent in a foreign language, let alone several. Congradulations, and best of luck.

Nice job. Did you gain the required weight or did they let it slide?

Yeah. 68 inches, 115 pounds exactly. Just met the minimum requirements.

I want to be a linguist too! (But not in the army)

Good luck!

I wish I had to gain weight to be 115. That would be fucking great.

So who's going to run this place if you're in the army?
