I just wanted to share with you that my son will also ship off on July 3 for Boot Camp. He will be training with an instructor SpecOps Navy Seal trained in Fitness and swimming. He enlisted in the AIRC. Your recruiter will help with fitness trainers. Maybe our paths will cross at PIR (graduation).
Good luck to you Brooke.
Check out the various GF, wives, finances groups by going to the tabs above, just below the N4M banner at the top of the pages. I think you will find a lot of information there and possibly someone just like you. You would have to join to ask questions, but you can read posts to see which group best suits you, or possibly find someone with similar circumstances.
I am not involved in the rescue swimmer...but I believe that I have read posts so you might want to check the groups for the swimmers and other rates you listed. Queen Bee has a number of discussions on the Main tab...that deal with groups, where you can look up almost anything.
hi! i am also joining the navy i leave nov 9th 2011. I first contacted my recruiter in feb this year i was also wanting to do airr. He said okay sure and he took me to meps and i was going to go to meps get a job then do the next pst and get my contract. so i did my depth perception test while i was at meps. I scored an 82 on the asvab and the job they gave me at meps was ctm. well i did my first PST and i did pretty good i only needed to work on my situps and id have my contract next pst. The thing is at the pst your going to need to be under the 9s that means a 9min swim 9 min run and above 90 pushups and sit ups and above 9 pullups. you get your contract after that usually. I found out after a while that the job i got at meps(CTM) is actually an amazing job and ive heard its good for when you get out and its one of the best in the navy. So i decided to stick to it because i started to think if i dont retire in the navy its not going to be useful to me to be Airr because lifeguards dont get paid much. in my opinion if you wanna do Airr i would dedicate everything to it. wake up early swim for a couple of hrs and workout alot everydayy. but Good luck and i hope you make it but no matter what you joined the navy so you cant go wrong no matter what.:D
