    Gear fitting they called last time around, I was told they're going to send letters this time. You try on bunker gear, gloves & boots... Academy start 25 & 29 hopefully they won't change it ready to leave my job now !

    Letters for those interviews were sent out last month with the rest. I think he means that the BCs were scheduled.

    I have a question for someone who may be "in the know". I have my physical scheduled for next week, I have no medical history whatsoever, no broken bones or surgery or anything like that, but when I got out of the Navy last year I went to a VA health screening and the printout they gave me said that my cholesterol and triglycerides were both high. I chalked it up to my post-active duty diet of fast food and budweiser, never went to see an actual doctor and was never actually diagnosed, never took any kind of medication for it or anything. I've improved my diet since last year, but I'm worried it still might be high. I see on the letter they sent me that they will be taking blood at the physical. I'm 24 years old and in otherwise good shape, if my cholesterol is high is that something that will keep me out? Or are they just looking for very serious medical problems with that blood test? I'd appreciate some words of wisdom.

    Don't even worry about that, they're looking for drugs

    That's a major relief, I wasn't sure if they were just looking for drugs or major medical problems (like if something was way off and meant you were really sick) or if they were going to eliminate people for things like cholesterol or other minor things. Will the doctor tell me if I pass on the day of the physical or is there a waiting period?

    No hair test it's too expensive, and I've been through the process twice. Vitals, hearing, vision, blood, **** test, general physical. Make sure you make weight! You will know if you pass everything before you leave, minus the drug test that gets sent out. You should already know about the drug test, the second you pee into that cup

    What kind of medical records do they need? I haven't had health insurance since I was 18, and have no history of medical problems throughout my childhood. I had my tonsils removed when I was 7 but that's it. I wouldn't even know how to get my records for my general check ups from my younger years. As far as I know I'm healthy as a horse. Do they only need records if you have a history of a specific problem?

    It states in your letter to bring records of any surgery,overnight hospital stays, etc ... you will fill out a form when you get there asking if youve had certain medical problems ... if you have had problems then they might want to see records but its really only major stuff theyre worried about ... I brought my cardiologist records for my heart murmur and it was good enough for them ... all the minor stuff Ive had over the years they didnt worry about

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but, I'm hearing that the start of the classes will be pushed back to mid to late July. Seems that the pencil pushers can't push their pencils fast enough. Hope it's bad info.
