Thats all i know man. So get off my back. If i could leave now i would.
Based on my recent experience mentoring a youth through the National Guard Youth Challenge Project, I'd believe A.J.'s story is fairly accurate. Recruiters tell kids what they want to hear, and kids also don't pay the best attention with all the shit thrown at you at the MEPS. "Motor transport engineer" sounds most like a "Wheeled vehicle repair" position.
Nothing government run is efficient, and that goes double for the armed services.
