DD called to say that in her Battalion, Branching decisions were learned by the MSIVs. It's kind of interesting to see how MSIs are learning about this critical process from the MSIVs. Turns out I've given WAY more thought to that process, including the OML, than she has. Three of the eight she heard about got Infantry, and one who wanted Infantry got Armor. Not sure what the other four got b/c she didn't mention. I believe she called me b/c earlier I had told her that Infantry is hard to get (well, impossible for a female, as are all Combat Arms Branchings). Seems two of the MSIIs in her Battalion are also talking about quitting college and ROTC and enlisting Infantry. She didn't say why, but I suspect they don't want to wait until they're commissioned and we're possibly completely out of Afganistan -- they want to get some action NOW.
