    The current world record for the number of pushups in 1 minute is 152.

    Work on it!
    That's crazy, I never knew that, I can just go and enlist now then. I thought they put you in DEP and then ship you off ASAP. Thanks for the new info.

I definitely advise holding out for the MOS you want, as it is the next 4 years, or possibly 20+ years of your life should you choose to make it a career.
    Yeah I've been told that, I'll meet with the Recruiter and see what he says if he can't find one for me, then I'll do as you said and wait until fall. I didn't know it worked like that either, thanks for the info.

    Yeah, everything in the military (or the US government for that matter) revolves around the fiscal year, Oct 1 - Sep 30. Know it, love it
