    Mess Dress

    At OTS right now and looking for a mess dress that some one is looking to sell. I’m trying to rent one at Shinbaums right outside the base, but they may run out and I’m not in a position to shell out hundreds for a new one. I’m 5’9” and weight 175lbs, waist 32”, and a 15-15.5” neck. Thanks.

    Lying to reserve recruiter?

    I 2nd Brabus on this one. Go to MEPS and get it out of the way. You’ll need to pay for your travel expenses to get your IFC1 which can take a few months to get scheduled and approved. The physicals are transferable between the AF and ANG with a request from either branch. In essence, your taking inniative and several people I knew on the circuit did it. Keep in mind though, your kind of entering no mans land by not having a unit and need to have patience/persistence in keeping up with the medicals. Good luck!!

    Guard to Active Duty help (seriously)

    I’m glad it was relevant somehow. Who ever is keeping said program deactivated is an idiot and needs to get it going for those, like yourself, who are wanting to make the switch. Best of luck!

    You’re welcome. The board really looks at the whole person concept. I didn’t have the best scores or awesome LORs when I was selected unsponsored.
