Hey all,

I am a 28 year old female and I recently decided to enlist in the National Guard. It is something that I have been wanting to do for a long time but the timing wasn't right until now. I'm shipping out on November 20th and I'm starting to get pretty stressed out. I know I will mostly be among 18 year olds but if you all can tell me a little more about what to expect that would be great. I know things have changed in the past few years so I'd like to hear from those of you that have been through it somewhat recently. I will be at Fort Leonard Wood.
