To be honest, my main motivation for going to the STA plt was to get out of Dragons. I had read the books as a kid and knew I wanted to do something "cool", but I had not yet zeroed in on exactly what. When I got out of SOI and went to the fleet, I arrived at 2/6 Dragons to find a platoon with one Sgt and a whole bunch of "senior" Lcpls who were bitter about a ridiculously high cutting score and were eager to take it out on the latest batch of boots. It was a pretty depressing scene and after a few months, I had made up my mind to take whichever indoc came first.. STA or Recon. Turns out that a few of my buddies from SOI had taken the STA indoc shortly after SOI and helped me train for mine. Making the decision to go to STA was the best decision of my time in the Corps.
