Be proud you are hangin with some pretty bad ass muther fkrs, listen to your team when you get there, they will up it another notch for ya. Good Luck and GodSpeed.

Always do the best that you can, and never, ever quit.

That is not only excellent advice for the pipeline, sounds to me like excellent advice for anything you do in life.

I especially like the line, "Do the right thing, even when you think no one is watching".

Of that group of 44 only 7 of us even went to SFAS. Of that 7, 6 of us graduated. The lone non-select had a problem with losing his rifle... We have 2 charlies, 2 echo, and 2 deltas
What SFAS class did you go through? Just curious since I'm an 18xer who arrived at 30th on April 3rd. I was assigned 18B along with a buddy of mine who also came in the same day. Just finished BNCOC and going to phase II next Friday. Don't you remember those two guys back at SOPC trying to square you guys away right before you left for selection? I'm assuming you just finished SFAS class 08-02. Get your information right buttnugget.

Do you know how the RIPpers got into SOPC?

Since they're technically still IET soldiers and haven't checked in with a unit yet, they can visit with the SF recruiter at Ft Benning and opt for the SF Pipeline. RIP kinda does the same thing at Airborne school. They have a RIP liason come talk to joes with certain MOS's and give them the opportunity to go to RIP instead of going to whatever unit they were supposed to go to. Of the SOPC guys I went through with, some of them signed up while they were in OSUT, some in Airborne, and a bunch from RIP. Hope this answered your question. Later.
