      - Currently 25 years old...will i be a "target" for the DI? will they be expecting more from the older guys or do they treat every Poolee the same?(not that i am worried, i will give it my all!)
      - How likely will it be for me to be stationed overseas?

        No.. they will cuss everyone equally until you have earned the right to be cussed at an extraordinary amount of time.

        If your good.. then your good. No need to worry

            Welcome Poolee, bring the clothes your wearing, your recruiters business card, social security card (and possibly birth certificate), any prescriptions you have, and if you take your cell phone they will hold it for you (I actually just talked to somebody that got in fairly recently) also about going overseas I'm not sure what your shipping rotation will be as an AET, but I'm going in as Infantry so I ship for 6 months and come back for 7, you won't ship nearly as often

              How does BAH(Basic Allowance for Housing) work?
              currently is Me, my Brother and my Mom on the lease agreement and we all pay
              would i qualify to receive it?

              (wont get a chance to meet with my recruiter for a few days, so i just thought i put this here and see if i can get more information)

                no there not dependents so youd just have to sacrifice some of your pay.

                  if your brother and mom are your dependents then you would qualify.

                  But if your mom works and claims your brother on her taxes then your bro is her dependent and you would not qualify for BAH

                    I would let your hair grow out some or risk standing out.
