  • Anyone know the deal with the Veteran Recruitment Appt paperwork? I got it by email, it says it will expedite the process. People on the honor first forums are saying it basically puts you straight in TSU and if your BI comes back negative you are sent packing. This seems too good to be true. Anyone else get this email? Anyone know exactly what will happen?

            • I finally got called by the company doing my background investigation. They said within two weeks I'll be contacted by an investigator.

              • I have a question! Okay my buddy just called me today and said that he received a call for his medical. He hasn't gone through the panel yet. He was in the military though. So did he get veterans preference? See I had to go through the panel interview and passed but still haven't heard anything for my medical (My panel was 3 weeks ago btw).

                • you have to go through a panel regardless of whether you are a vet or not. He's just out of order I suppose.

                  • Yeah I would say the same. All the steps aren't in order from what I know. Some people will do the oral boards first and others the medical.

                      Yeah I just found it really odd that they would go ahead and pay for his medical when he hasn't gone through the Oral Board yet. It just doesn't make sense to me I guess. I thought everyone went in order. Guess not. Interesting though to say the least.

                          Well I figured there was an order to the process. I am mistaken then if that's not the case.

                          • This is a shot in the dark. Has anyone (who applied) heard anything from the BPA announcement last month that was for Vets only?

                            • I was contacted by BI. At first I thought it was an April fools prank but all my peeps started txting me that they were also contacted.

                              TO 9/14, East Coast

                              Things are at least moving.

                              Good luck....

                                Did the call come from an unknown number? I'm on the east coast as well.
