OH MAN! Today was day 1 of RECEX and I won't lie I was nervous as hell. Especially since I was first in the chute for my squad and it ended up as first for the whole class since the other 2 evaluators showed up a little late. I couldn't sleep last night, I couldn't eat this moring, I was a mess. I heard my evaluator was the toughest and that didn't make it any better. Especially walking into the unknown was kinda scary too.

What happens is this: you'll go into a room that has a desk and a chair, looks like a recruiter office. The phone will ring, you pick it up and the evaluator asks if your ready. After he makes sure you are and you know who your person is you get a count down, 3...2...1... and then the evaluator says "Hello" and then it's on like donkey kong. You just do what you've been taught. At the end you'll get an AAR over the phone and find out if your a GO or not. If you are you go start getting ready for the Army Interview, if your a NO GO you get a retrain sheet and you go back to your Small Group Leader for retraining. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and my evaluator was pretty cool. He graded to standard but didn't make it impossible. As long as you know the steps and you can show that you are competent you are good.

For the interview it's you and the next two people in your squad for the RECEX. When it's your time for the interview you'll go back to that same room, set up your stuff and the computer with the recruiting disk that they gave you. At which point the evaluator will give you the run down on how it's going to go. Basically, after your briefing everyone but you will leave, you give the evaluator about 2 mins to make it back to his room and start the recording device, walk over to the door and open it. There will be your applicant and their influencer. Then you go through your interview like you've been trained. Since it's your buddies they aren't going to throw stuff out that puts a wrench in your plans so don't worry about that. All the info they tell you will come from a sheet of paper that the evaluator will give them. The evaluator may call and tell you to move on to the next step if your doing well and they may even end it early. When it's over your more than likely not going to know how you did, then the next guy gets ready and the process repeats itself except now your not going to see the evaluator again until everyone goes through it. So it's more or less 3 hrs of nothing but Army Interviewing going on. After everyone in your 3 person group goes through the evaluator will come to you and give everyone an AAR in person as a group and thats when you'll know how you did. My group all got GO's, we were also the only ones to do the interview today. All we have left to do now is create our enlistment packets. I can't really tell you how that will go until tomorrow. But I'll let you know, don't worry.

PS-Thanks to those who have given me encouraging words, and I hope that this has given you all some insight to Recruiting School, so at least you'll have something to let you know whats coming up instead of going in blind. I can't promise it will be the same, it all depends on

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.
