But thank you. I'm trying to be positive. I do occasionally get a wave of "oh sh** I actually signed. My life's about to change big time." it's really weird. Good, but weird.
Thank you for already serving.
That is pretty normal. Just keep your head up and don't let **** get to you. Its all about heart, if you have enough heart to make it through you will, if not then you won't.
Everyone was telling me I could never make it through infantry training let alone a deployment because of my size( I'm only 5'3). I went on after basic to go through Airborne, Air Assault and Sniper School. Never got put in scout platoon because the last slot got filled up while I was in sniper school. I was the only one in my company to have perfect qualification scores across the board on every weapon I had to qualify with. Anyone can make it through and excel as long as they WANT it bad enough.
Good luck and embrace the suck it is your friend.
