Yeah CT is a good rate! When I was in I was an EW, they are now one of the CT rates but I can't remember which one. You must have had a good back ground as I am quite sure they have screened the crap out of it for you to be elligible.
Any way thank you for deciding to protect this great country. Great Lakes is a cold mutha this time of year btu I went about the same time a hundred years ago when I was still young, and believe me I ain't good int he cold so if I did it you can too. Good Luck man!
