My name is Eli
I am a DEP and have signed under 11X Opt. 4 (Airborne). I am 17 in my senior year of high school. I scored an 82 on my ASVAB with a GT of 121. My ship date to OSUT is ***** to Benning. My goal was to land an Opt. 40 but could not attain one due to the fact there are little out there. My neighbor is a former SF/Ranger Col. so he told me if he felt I was 110% ready, he would pull some strings and have Ranger recruiters pull me. I have a good idea what I'll be doing in Airborne and once I get to basic but can't back that statement up until I experience it first hand. I'm hoping to get to know a few DEP's with the same ship date as me during my stay on this site.
