If you joined an MOS expecting it to pay dividends in the future don't be surprised when it doesn't or you Effin hate it. Keep your nose clean and work hard to make it work for you. The military is absolutely, 150%, what you make it do for you.
Stay out of trouble. Don't find yourself getting NJP. Don't worry about getting promoted before you get in. I was e-1 snuffy when I went to ft lost in the woods and got promoted to e-4 before my battle buddies that started out their army careers at e-3. Good luck!
