I know how people feel about recruiters. But I have nothing to gain except misery by lying to one of my future collegues or supervisors. And trust me I did not lie to myself.
I'm commissioning Saturday, the 14th, as a 66H8A, into the 345 Combat Support Hospital, USAR, at Jacksonville, Fl.
Just wanted to let you and everyone else know that I had a very positive experience in working with my health care recruiters and have alot of respect for the hard work and professionalism they exhibited during the whole process. I mainly worked with Capt. Saint Kaniaupio and SSG Doug Harding, and they were great, but the whole recruiting station at Gainesville, Fl was top notch.
LOL, I thought it was funny you consider going to commissioned status a step down for a SFC! You are probably correct in many respects, pay rate included. Best of luck with your career change and thank you for your input.
