Ok, so yeah, LONG day. We only did the Army Interview. We only got through 3 today, and probably only that tomorrow too. So we'll only be able to get through the class once this week, because Friday we go get fitted for the ASU and get us 2 sets of ACU's and to think we have to do 3 each. So next week is also dedicated to doing the Army Interview, along with our face to face prospecting (P3) in Charleston. The Army Interview doesn't seem that hard when you actually see it done out in full and not taught in sections. The order of things, APPLEMDT (the prequals) and SOLDIER (how you sell the army) is the only thing you really have to remember by heart.

Since I brought it up I'll touch on APPLEMDT and SOLDIER real quick. APPLE MDT is how you remember all the prequal questions. Each letter stands for a category; Age, Prior service, Physical, Law violations, Education, Marital status, Dependants, and Test. In those categories are just a series of questions. If you google "APPLEMDT" it should give you a link to USAREC Manual 3-01 (recruiter handbook) and goes into a little more detail. SOLDIER is how you sell the Army. It stands for; Service to country, Occupation, Leadership, Diversity, Income, Excitement, Respect. Each of those categories is up to you on how you present them, basically you try to fit their goals to each thing. It don't take long, the longest category will probably be Income, since everyone is about money and the other benefits that they will get. You actually get a CD that has a little program that does this all for you. You just click a few buttons and it will bring up a list of small videos and documents to explain each thing and give you something to talk about, so 90% of the Army Interview is actually done for you.

Don't worry about wrapping your head around it now or worry about how you'll do on it. When I first heard someone try to explain it I was lost in the sauce, but seeing it in person made me realize it all. You also have a "evidence book" that follows along with SOLDIER and you don't have much work to do on it. They'll practically give you the powerp

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.
