yeah just a tad 10 years older. I could be a father to most kids in my Dep meetings. What have you found out about the A schooling location? My recruiter does not know the location and believes it is still Ingleside, TX

Ok, sounds good. I was not aware of the ATT School and nothing in my contract for it. I am Reserves, so guessing it is something I will not be attending.

Hey, Crandan27
I spoke with the LPO of the Mineman A-School. He says A-school is San Diego, CA and is 13weeks long. He also said once we get back to our NOSC there are opportunities that come up to come back on Active Duty.. Currently they have 3 Reservist Instructors at A-school since they are undermanned. So that leads me to think if you want Active Duty opportunities they will be there for us in the Reserves. If you have a Facebook look up Mine Warefare Training Center, you can message MN1 Cross who is the LPO of Mineman A-School. Hope this helps anyone.

Me too man. I was bummed when I was told all I could do is reserves right now but this gets my foot in the door and this rate seems like it's going to be a good one to get a lot of active duty time in, until I can cross over to active duty later on.

Chance.... We are going to be at Basic together all the way through A school. I ship the 12th and I see you are shipping the 11th. We may even end up in the same division?. I only know of one other guy from CO that is shipping the same time we are and also has MN rate. So if you happen to see the "old guy" that will be me. Good luck!
