  • Seeking Branch Information


    I found this:

    But it's not as detailed as I would like.

    Any more info would be exceptional. Such as, How long is BOLC? What do the jobs entail? Especially on Armor, either of the Artillerys, Signal, MP, JAG and Finance.

    I'd also like to verify what I've heard from a local Officer Candidate recruiter about OCS:

    I'm currently enlisted, E3, 25U, with a Signal Company located in Ohio.
    Tenatively to mob in early-mid 2011.
    I have an associate's and am set to graduate from THE Ohio State University shortly before deployment. So I'm considering AOCS.
    When I initially enlisted, I slipped up and didn't grab the SLRP on my contract, when asked if SLRP could be thrown into my OCS contract, he said yes. (True or false?)
    I know when you enlist, you can request airborne or air assault, can that be done when comissioning as well?

    What're the specifics on ascension bonuses? I already recieved 20k lump when enlisted, so I would imagine there'd be some issues on getting another bonus.

    When you comission, I've heard you're obligated to 8 years. T/F?

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    As funny as it sounds, wikipedia has a pretty decent explination of the different branches as well as their history and such. Good info
