Well, Just got the call!!!!!!!!!!
Still in disbelief
Congratulations! I can remember the excitement in our home when my son got his call 3 years ago. You should be very proud of your accomplishments.
Enjoy the remainder of your senior year. R day will be here soon...
I knew that you could make it! Now, enjoy the rest of your senior year! Before you know it, it'll be Swab Summer
hehehehe, yeah I saw that video also. Apparently, he sassed every cadre in his squadron. I figured out that that was the reason why the Cadre was yelling at him.
"One very important aspect of Swab Summer is the PEP program. PEP stands for Personal Enhancement Platoon and any swab that is not performing up to the standard, with significant documentation provided by Cadre members will make a recommendation to their respective company officer to send the individual to PEP. Any swab that is determined worthy of going to PEP will have a Cadre member assigned to the swab from another company. The Cadre member who is assigned to the PEP swab will be informed of the individual's personal problems and areas of focus. The PEP has very limited rules as to what the Cadre can demand from the PEP. The PEP Cadre should break the swab down and slowly build them back up throughout the duration of PEP. PEP is held every Wednesday during swab Summer and any swab that goes through PEP twice, and shows little or no improvement, is recommended to not only be placed on Suitability for Service, but must also meet with their company officer and chief. The focus of the meeting is to inform the swab that unless they show signs of improvement that they will be recommended for disenrollment. PEP is usually a life changing experience and gives individual swabs the motivation that they previously lacked to get through Swab Summer. "
