Today everyone finished up their Army Interviews, while a select few of us role played for the Guidance Counselor students. It was a lot of fun, they gave us a name, social, ed code, and a little scenario that pretty much told us our attitude towards everything. They wanted us to act a fool like young future soldiers would act so it would wind up them up. It worked, we talked on our phones, played dumb, walked out on them, anything you could think of we did. We made them work for their GO's, they all passed so we didn't screw them over. It was a good learning experience for us too, we got to see how our applicants feel going through it all.

We also got our ASU's today at lunch. The pants are $87 and the coat is $189 the white shirts are like $27. Thats all I bought. You don't have to, but if you get fitted you do or they throw a fit. You can buy as much or as little as you want, so if you don't want the hat you don't have to get it. The STA-BRITE Recruiter Badges are like $23 and from what I've heard they give you the un-STA-BRITE at the school house. You also have to pay for your rank, combat stripes and service stripes, which is a couple buck apiece. Alterations depends. The pant hemming is free, you only have to pay for the coat part, at the least you'll pay is $41 for the little gold piping by the cuff to be put on, if the buttons need to be moved thats $10 and I'm not sure about anything else they do. You can also just get your existing blues updated to the ASU standard that is fine too. It's all on you. Tomorrow we are getting some briefings in the morning, followed by graduation practice and an early release if we work through lunch, which we will. Tomorrow will probably be my last post for the Recruiter School blog. I'll be moving onto the Post-Recruiter School / PCS after graduation and all that documenting my experiences PCS'ing to a city instead of a base.

Do you pay for your ASUs out of pocket or do they give you that money before-hand? How does that whole deal work?

They will deposit about $480 into your account like a week or two before you have to pay. Then on Wedsnesday of your last week you'll go and pay for what you want. For example, they gave me the $480 but I only got my pants, coat and one white shirt, plus the alterations fee, so I only paid $302. They don't care what you do with it really, as long as you have a to standard pair of ASU's when you get to your battalion. If you have a pair of Blues you can just get the coat altered to the new standard and get a new pair of pants.
