I tried that.  Didn't work.  The Army had a lot of radio and telecom
equipment that needed fixing.  They did try to get me to go to OCS, but
I wasn't stupid enough to accept.  I milked the invitation for all it
was worth, though.  The CO of my Basic company was an OCS graduate so I
got to spend time the other guys spent doing pushups in his office
listening to his sales pitch.  Eventually he caught on.
