    Branched FA

    Just thought I'd post about branching Field Artillery. Was my top choice so I'm really pleased. I'll graduate & commission in May from Texas A&M for those of yo who don't know me.

    Congrats man! We (at West Point) had our branching ceremony last weekend-- ran around drinking heavily with crossed rifles stuck in my chest all night. Exactly what I was after.

    Where are you thinking of posting and when will you find out?

    We usually find out our first posting around Feb or so. Hopefully I get an early BOLC II date...

    They made him a second lieutenant
    They gave him his two bars of gold
    They made him a forward observer
    And he lived to be 3 seconds oooold . . .


    Pay attention to your grades, and always remember what the Corps of Cadets academic advisor told us at A&M, "Anything over a 2.0 is wasted effort . . . "
