    I'm about to leave for work so unfortunately I don't have the time to find the link for you, but about.com used to have some really good information about the military, especially the entrance procedures likes MEPS and basic. I know this because I spent A LOT of time surfing their military site when I was considering going into the army a few years ago. I'd check them out... they used to have a nice forum too dedicated to military Q&A including a nice section for questions from incoming soldiers. Hopefully it's still there!

    Best of luck!

    FYI: If you are going in as an officer you usually do not have to go to MEPS you can go to the nearest military base and get a normal military physical. Just one of the things nobody told me until after I went to MEPS, and I was by far the oldest recruit there. I was even older than most of the staff, but I was treated well.

    thanks, but I already went through MEPS. I actually was sworn in as 1LT this past Tuesday. It wasn't a fun experience, but it wasn't that bad. What I can say is that it was a little humbling seeing all the 18 and 19 years old girls about to cry because they had to get a breast exam, yet they were about to enter basic. But at least I now know I'm officially a girl! lol1 (if you're a girl and been to MEPS you know what I mean by that)

    Only know from my female friends, but they do a peek test at MEPS to make sure you're a female!

    Congratulations! Did you go Army or Air Force? What base did you get?
    I'm at Keesler AFB.
