What the hell is a 21B? If you are going to LW its either MP or Chemical I would think.

Sweet Jesus man aren't you a lil old?

JK I was 25 when I joined.

Best thing I ever did.

Remember its all a mind game and you will NEVER be able to do ANYTHING right the first couple of weeks. Even if you do it right.... Your wrong!

when they tell you to do something, you must always ask "why"

When they call your name you HAVE to respond with "HUH?"

21B? I just googled it and it looks exactly like what I did from 1986 to 1992 as a 12B/12C (dual qualified). It looks like they kind of combined Combat Construction and Combat Bridge into one MOS. I LOVED being a Combat Engineer, especially the explosives and the mines. Bridge building was kind of cool too, but blowing shit up was awesome. I wish you lots of luck in your endeavors as a Combat Engineer, and I hope you love it as much as I did!

Essayons! (You will learn what that means, if you don't already know). Oh yeah, don't bring any civilian stuff that you don't mind throwing away or sending home. I threw away my Zippo, and pocket knife, and sent all but one set of civilian clothes home when I got to Ft Leonard Wood.
