I'm in phase 2 of school right now. Phase 1 is like a army EOD prep school. you'll get the very basics there. Phase 1 is at redstone arsenal, AL. It's alright there for reclass students. Phase 2 is at Eglin AFB, FL. It's a Navy school close to Destin. I have to admit that so far EOD school is the only thing that's challenged me in life. And you don't hear the BOOM you just turn into pink mist.

I just got pre-approved for EOD. I have to do my interview now and go for suit testing. I am presently in Afghanistan and will most likely be going to Bagram for testing. Has anyone gone through suit testing recently? What does it consist of? Do they do it differently while deployed?
What can I expect during the interview portion?
I was laid up for a year with a broken leg, just getting back into a formal PT regimen, run time is still way off from what is used to be. I also got fat during the 15 months i was laid up, but have lost 37 pounds since I got to Afghanistan in Jan. Any PT tips to prepare me for the testing? Figure I have about 45 days or so before i can get there to be tested.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!

I wanted to quit 30 seconds after it began, but I didn't. There is no preparing for it. When we conduct tests we just go until someone quits, someone pukes, and someone cries. It usually doesn't take long.
