Military Service

Any members out there that are currently serving, have served, or are planning on serving in our nations military?

I personally plan on serving in the United States Marine Corps. I am in the process of preparing for the ASVAB and MEPS this month, and will be signing my papers in July when I get back from vacation. I have been looking into Marine Corps Security Forces for my MOS.

Re: Military Service

I was in the USAF and got out in 97. I was a PJ for about 10 years till my body said no more!! It was a lot of fun and I have been to many many countries.

A little advise:

Save money!!! All you can!!
Wait a while before you get married!! (Trust me)

Good Luck to you!!

Re: Military Service

I was set to go to the Navy. Firefighter. Then I got hit with reality. After thinking back I was lied to about almost everything and that left a bad taste. Looking back I wish I would have at least went NG or something.

And I strongly second his advice. Particularly if you end up anywhere near Lejeune. Those women are predatory, uneducated golddiggers. Most of 'em, anyway.
You ran with RECON? I ran with SEAL Team 3 A Platoon. They didnt have a corpman so I was picked. Had a blast!!! Odd mixture though AF with Navy.

I broke my legs on a night time HALO, so I became an (PJ) instructor. I think I would rather stay an operator than instructor.

My recruiter was straight forward with me and my buddy. He told us that he will not give us a signing bonus. He wants recruits who want to be Marines and not recruits who are only there because they were promised $XXX.

Re: Military Service

most people on here kno that i want to go into the navy. its been a goal of mine for 4 years now, so i kno its what i want to do. i want to go into the seal teams as an officer.

i am currently signing up with the navy sea cadets. in summer 07 ill be going to NYC for bootcamp. after that, i can train with so many aspects of the navy, marine corps, or coast guard, anytime during the summer, for 10 days. http://www.seacadets.org/public/programs/nscc/ <<list of all programs you can take. my friend signed up with me, and, i want to be a seal, while he wants to go into machinery, which he can go train with seabees, and ill go train with seals. you can do as much as u want until the end of summer, i plan on gettin my scuba degree at the seal training. ill probably do submarine training, mine warfare, EOD, and some officer classes as well. once u return home, u can spend a week or a weekend with your family before heading out to whatever class you want to take next. then until the next summer u go to ur stationed place for one weekend a month.

key aspects that are very nice about the program: it allows for many opportunities for kids. if u wanna quit, go ahead, u r not obligated to anything. for a program with so many benefits, it is very cheap. i think it varies from one area to another but it is very inexpensive. when u get out, and u decide u do want to joined the navy, marine corps, or coast guard (once again u dont have to join them, the forces listed simply sponser this program) u start out with a higher pay roll due to the time put in.

now this may seem like nothing to anyone older than eighteen, but i encourage anyone with kids or anyone they no, to look into this program. i personally can wait for summer.

as for the next steps toward becoming a seal officer, ive already looked into colleges and ive picked one that i like that has the nrotc program, but i wont bore u with that
