Every month, routine orders has a section for VOT if you are still on the BTL. Check it out.
Jane~Doe said:So here is my problem... I've just graduated IAP and am starting up BOTP in a few days. So far I love it all. However, it's become more and more obvious that my trade choice (armour) is not really for me. I want to get out of the combat arms and get into pilot, air nav, or ATC. I've been talking to everyone I can corner with a little experience and so far it seems like the only real option for me is to VR and reapply civi-side (which I would really rather not do, seeing as how it would mean resigning a commission if I finish my BOTP first). Does anyone have any experience/suggestions to offer? Thanks for any help.

Personally, I think being a Troop Leader is the 2nd best job in the army, second only to being a Troop WO. But, thats my opinion. I also believe if you are mentally convinced that you don't want to do the training, and knowing the nature of that training, if you don't go in motivated, you are wasting time and money, are likely to tap out during the training, and will then transfer MOCs but as a Trg Failure rather than of a voluntary nature. You could, of course, also be released from the CF as a Trg failure. Lots to think about here, IMO.
That's a terrible opinion. Doubt, especially when one is so new, is normal and to be expected.Wonderbread said:Am I the only one who thinks that any officer who is doubting whether or not he/she should be there probably shouldn't be there?

Agreed. That being said, it's human nature to doubt oneself, to say those in the military do not doubt themselves is naive.Eye In The Sky said:Maybe you'd have a different opinion if you understood and have done any actual military training, army in particular.
