I've slowly realized this but you need to dissolve any and all of your ego; a general statement of course, not directed solely at you. Pick at the armor you wear: the achievements, the recommendations, the certificates, the "things" that you measure your worth with, and just huck most of it out the window. Go there metaphorically naked, but determined, moldable, and quietly strong. Desperate but proud, lol. I was keeping contact with a guy who joined the Legion a few weeks back, former USAF, and I haven't heard back from yet which means, he's still there. A guy with a ton of options, honorable service, a good family with money, a clean record, and he's made it through. You've got this! Keep quiet, surround yourself with good people (apparently not the Nepalese or people who talk too much sh**, lol) and just have a simple story, simple timeline, and remember less is more.
