Oh, well. There's always next month, and I have plenty to do in the meantime.

You were either too competent or not competent enough

Oh, I didn't get rejected. What happened is that my recruiter failed to pull my medical documentation from the Military Entrance Processing Station in time to get my packet sent up to Battalion for review. So I have to wait for the next board while they get their act together.

Agreed, but I've been working with this station long enough to know how overworked they are. Plus, in all fairness to them, I have spent a very long time putting together my OCS packet. I first started thinking about joining the Army in the fall of 2013, and it's taken me until now to be ready for the board.

But I was a little annoyed that they hadn't pulled my medical paperwork a long time ago when they knew I wanted to make January's board.

Speaking of the military, reading the chest bumping and suggestions of posters on another forum concerning what the Army's next hand gun should be is a type of self flagellation that normally you have to pay a tall woman in leather for.

A thought just occurred to me: who would win in a fight? John Wick or Vincent from Collateral?
