  • Is this a good/bad sign?

    Hi all,

    The BI earlier today, spoke with the recruiter that got me back in the military. The recruiter spoke highly of me and the interview went superb. The BI called and asked me to show up tomorrow at 1330 for a face to face interview. Is this normal? If yes, is it a good or a bad sign? Thanks in advance!

    Gotta be a good sign

    But now that the interview has passed, why don't you tell us.

      I think I may have blown it by getting teary eyed towards the end. I went in expecting the worse. It was a good thing too, because I was grilled like there was no tomorrow. I had to provide them with a copy of my new military contract.

      They had me explain why I had gone AWOL. That was not the hard part. They wanted to know why, and how often I tried to re-enter the military. This is when my emotions got the best of me.

      I am US Citizen by choice, therefore being an American has a deeper meaning for me. As I've stated many times before, things I've accomplished here would've been impossible in my homeland of Haiti.

      Every thing that I am, every moral fiber of my being, every moment of happiness I've ever known is made possible by this great nation, yet when America needed me I turned my back to her.

      The biggest blow came when I was sworn in a US Citizen on 05/25/05. America had once again opened her arms to adopt me as her son, yet I had done nothing to prove worthy of such an honor.

      Words cannot even begin the describe the shame I felt before I was granted a waiver to re-enter the military. The wounds got deeper each time I heard of our troops dying in Iraq/Afghanistan. It was a testament of their courage, and a reminder of my cowardice.

      It was at that momemt I started to weep. I know, to many of you I'm just an anonymous name online. But I swear to every American that I will earn the right to be called an American. If I were to get deployed to Iraq and lose my life, or a limb, it would be a small price to pay for all you've given me.

      I swear to you America, your immigrant son will never forget. Now and forever I will devote my entire life in service to you, hoping that maybe, just maybe...one day I will have redeemed myself in your eyes.

        Teary Eyes won't blow it

        Nobody is going to blame you for getting a little emotional over such an issue.
        If you explained it as well in the interview as you did here, I suspect there will me no problem. Hang in there.

          Thanks, I feel much better. I thought they would've seen it as a sign of weakness or something. I tried my best to hold back but the emotions ran strong. Hopefully everything turns out ok. If it doesn't, I've no one to blame but myself.
