What do I do for the Best for both Army and myself?

Going to BCT in one week, as a Specialist because I have BA.

I also have Civilian Full-Time job with benefits.
Army is not my first choice for work so, is there the way to return home from BCT?

or

Can they put me in Officer Training there?
What does an Officer do? Depending on their MOS?

Ive heard of people with BA's going to basic, and then having their stuff changed to OCS once they get there... but you still need to meet all of the requirements. Officers do all kinds of stuff so it does depend on the job.

Well you are now commited to the Army.
Why did you sign up if you weren't sure it was good for you?

You have to Apply and Be Accepted and be Willing to Work Hard for the Army to be an Officer. Frankly your attitude so far won't help you to succeed as an Officer.

Well are you even qualified to be an offifier? US Citizen, not older than 30 (waivers for it have about a 1% success rate), good credit, next to no legal issues, and able to pass a physical training test, not colorblind, etc. The list is far more stringent than enlisted.

Ok. Last I heard, to go OCS you can not be older than 35. Corvette, where are you getting your info about being 30?

You still do BCT then go straight to OCS.

You will get SOME choice, but the Army always tells ALL of us where to go. Wink

As soon as you apply, get selected and get a class date.

This is not my main concern but I was wondering how do I get pay for the BCT and AIT, and how much?

My rank is E-4, Thanks.

Part on In-Processing is supplying the Army with a bank account and routing number and your pay is direct deposited into that account.

Google "Military Pay Chart"

You should see a food allowance and most of it being taken back out for meal deduction since you will be eating at the DFAC (cafeteria)...if you are married, BAH (housing allowance) for your dependents, you also get free personal trainers, free counselors, free uniforms, free training, etc...

Talk to your Recruiter. Posting questions like the ones you have is what this message board is for, but there is a reason you are going in Enlisted into the Regular Army, and you should have discussed that with him prior to now. You made the decision to join enlisted. You will have the opportunity to go to OCS, but it may not be right after you graduate from BCT unless your contract is written for that.

Good luck,


If NCO's did their job, I wouldn't have mine.
