This idiot was trying to get me to go right into basic. If ANY recruiter promises you something, GET IT IN WRITING.

If these guys were promised that... and they can prove it. Then it isn't their problem... IT IS THE RECRUITERS FAULT.
Sure some lie..... I guess.... and they don't know all the answers but I know they act like they do. I'm not going to jump on the recruiter on this one even if he did lie, because if this was that important to them they should have done more research on their own, I guess the way you found out for yourself you would have to go to basic.

The recruiter I had pulled no punches he was honest and upfront about everything I asked.
