    Unfortunately this is our 3rd time for the board and never have we known before Thanksgiving, our recruiter said last week it would be 2-3 days which I was surprised, but optimistic needless to say it isn't a matter of thinking they will be on vacation- I just think it's a longer process

    When I was active duty, I am pretty sure the rules were, "you cannot have more than a 4 day period off, including weekends." Basically you could not have more than a 4 day weekend even on holidays, unless you were on leave.

    If that is still true, I cannot imagine them taking off before thursday, that gives them three more days next week, I hope that help bring some opitimism to the scenario.
    This is true you cannot have more than 4 consecutive days off for a pass, but you can take leave in sonjunction with a training holiday pass. Unfortunately there is a common misconception that you cannot because the reg states that you cannot do it with a special pass which is different. Bottom line, many SMs do take the few days before off up at USAREC and HRC because we do not get training holidays like many units. This place is massive and is a constantly working machine LOL. I know the anticipation is killing us all. I am not even being boarded and think I am as nervous as my wife. Again good luck to all and I wish you all the best.

    I have never been more nervous for someone elses board. I was up for soldier of the month once in Korea, and thought "ww can anything be more nerveracking(1sgts saying you better win, son, or you will get smoked daily lol). This is honestly the highest anxiety thing I have taken part in for some time.

    Lunah How many alternates do you think are selected within weeks of the boards. Like what % of the alternates do you think get picked up.

    I'm really not sure. I would guess the smaller number that is selected, the fewer that turn down the opportunity and open it up for those on the OML. It will all be a numbers game, I'm sure ... how many slots are really available, how many apply, how many accept the commission, etc. I mean, I can't imagine getting selected and turning it down -- our AMEDD application was 49 pages back when I applied, and I spent tons of time getting my packet contents together. Plus I really wanted to do it. But I'm sure people do decline for one reason or another.

    yeah the new application is over 70 pages. 66 pages alone in one pdf. lol. From what I understand about the alternates, is this. they select the wuota needed at the board. And that is the Number needed right away. They can use alternates to fill slots that become available through out the time until the next board. is that correct.

    All I know is that if I have to wait an extra week my fingers will be worn to nubs and i will most likely have a stress ulcer. Please let the results come this week.
