  1. Hey all!

    After my initial posts awhile back, I've now recieved my start date as an AET! :). All booked up for PRNC, but a quick question.. will I get to keep a beard during the week I'm there? Or will I be told to shave it off. I saw that I'll need to bring a few razors with me on my checklist. ;)
     
  2. Beards at PRNC are fine in my experience. However I was made to shave it at Raleigh.

    Bear in mind also, what you may think of as a beard, may not be viewed as a complete set by the staff. This being the case, still take shaving gear to PRNC.

    My advice, when joining the Armed Forces is to only stand out for the right reasons. Be the grey man.

    I took this to the extremes by eventually turning my hair grey & by growing a grey beard. It works, managers don't even know I exist. :)
