  • Direct Commission and FED REC Board Questions

    I have recently been approved by the State and NGB to Direct Commission as an Infantry Officer.

    I have been given a Fed Rec Board Date for this month.

    My questions are:

    1) How should I prepare for this board? What type of questions should I expect as an E6 going to a Fed Rec Board?

    2) I have been told to be prepared to swear in after the board, but have been given no further information no matter how much I pry. I have heard that there is a Direct Commission OCS program that I would need to attend, is this true?

    3) How long after commissioning do you have to attend BOLC?


    Thanks

    The board is a formality at this point. They ask some generic questions and as long as you don't say something totally crazy, you'll be ok.

    I think the DC program you're reffering to is for proffessionals right off the street with no military training (medical/JAG).

    I'm probably off but you need to have BOLC done within 18 months. Really, the sooner the better.
