doc training

I assume that you are applying with the Medical & classification center in coralville? If so it's a five week pre service training program...So I called a friend who works as a CO...and he said if you have been through basic training ..you will have no problem ..It's just a little less P.T and a little more classroom time..So if your still in good condition from your service..He advised just starting an hour P.T regiment in the morning for a month or so before you go...Hope this helps man I'm not really an expert on this subject

congratulations Adam

I'm sure you will do fine.. I notice bigjitsu above said the same thing i have about the physical part of it.. Sure you'll also go thru the 3 hr MMC psych test.. If we haven't screwed you up on here that should be a snap as well..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
