I certain can't argue with you on that one. When I was in Germany, one of the PX warehouses were in the patrol area we shared with another company. There was actually a sting operation set up because the other company was breaking in and night and stealing shit!:doh

Well, i can't vote on this for another year, but i'll be going into the USMC and through the PLC program to become a pilot as soon as i'm out of high school. I couldn't think of any career that would be more exciting than a military career as a pilot.

I haven't taken the official ASVAB test yet, but i'm going to next week, but i have already taken the practice test which i was given in the recruitment office, and i did more than well enough on it to take whichever pathway in the armed forces i would like to.

The only thing i'm worried about is boot camp, but it's only for 13 weeks so i'll get through it. In the mean time i'm training as hard as i can to make boot camp as easy as possible.

Sure you can vote. Your head and heart are in the right place.

Boot Camp will be tough, and at times you will get the feeling that your Drill Insturctor is out to get you, and you will be right.

Your DI's job is to get you to think, act, and look like a Marine.

In the meantime, keep your nose clean, hit the books, and graduate.

....and I might add that.... In Boot Camp, Your opinion does not matter and is best kept to your self. Like I told my Boy when he went in, *Kept yer eyes open, ears pinned back and yer mouth shut.*

*Kept yer eyes open, ears pinned back and yer mouth shut.*

I've heard that before, and I've looked up a few survival guides. I know going into it that my opinion means nothing, the DI's are always right, Boot camp will end, and i will be a far better person after boot camp. Oh, and never say that I'll be in the reserves after boot camp to anyone. Also, abandon personal terminology such as I, Me, My, You, Your, i will be "this recruit".

I voted USMC because it's 100% official for me now, went to MEPS yesterday, took my ASVAB(got a 96 :D without studying a minute) and my physical. But my mother was throwing a fit and told me not to enlist yet(i'm only 17) because she wanted to talk to me about it beforehand, well thats done and i'm going back to San Jose tomorrow. This is all so damn exciting, I'll be enlisting in the reserves in some position i'll never do, because straight out of boot camp i'll be going into college for the PLC program.

Congrats! It won't be 100% official till you graduate boot camp, but you're moving the right direction. lol It is good to have plans, but I hope you like that job you won't be doing cause things don't always work out the way the Recruiters tell you they will. I knew a guy in boot camp that thought he enlisted as a cook the whole time he was training only to find out he wasn't promised anything and they assigned him to Motor T. With a 96 ASVAB score you should be able to pick MOS you'd like.

I voted USMC because it's 100% official for me now, went to MEPS yesterday, took my ASVAB(got a 96 :D without studying a minute) and my physical. But my mother was throwing a fit and told me not to enlist yet(i'm only 17) because she wanted to talk to me about it beforehand, well thats done and i'm going back to San Jose tomorrow. This is all so damn exciting, I'll be enlisting in the reserves in some position i'll never do, because straight out of boot camp i'll be going into college for the PLC program.


I hope you realize that the Platoon Leader's Course is a voluntary program alternative to NROTC. The USMC is under no obligation to offer you a commission under the program or does it exempt you from your reservist obligations.

I think you'll find yourself doing a lot more of that job you think you're skipping out on than what you might think. What else are you going to do during your once a month/two weeks a year?

Oh . . . almost forgot.

I didn't have the heart to tell him that I'd believe all that when I saw it. But hey, there's a first time for everything in the Marine Corps. After all, the Corps always puts the Marines' interests first right?

I've heard that before, and I've looked up a few survival guides. I know going into it that my opinion means nothing, the DI's are always right, Boot camp will end, and i will be a far better person after boot camp. Oh, and never say that I'll be in the reserves after boot camp to anyone. Also, abandon personal terminology such as I, Me, My, You, Your, i will be "this recruit".
Oh yeah and that is all really easy to say till you're there.

I was aware of the possibility of not receiving a commission, but I found something else out about the program that i wasn't informed of... Not sure how things are looking now, me and my recruiter are going to have a discussion about this tomorrow(from what i can find the PLC program doesn't even work until you're in your sophmore year of college, and you can only get the tuition assistance for three years, and it's less than what he said it was).

Then they ask you politely what you'd like to do, if it's ok if you work 5 or 6 hours today and whether or not you'd like to take a small vacation. Completely up to you of course.

Don't forget that if you accept tuition assistance and you don't receive/turn down a commission, you have a 4 year active duty enlisted obligation after you graduate.

They tried that *School Now* bullshite with my son... and he almost fell for it. He came home and told me about it.... Not only ^ he wouldnt get to choose his MOS. Even if he had gone with the program, *School Now* didnt allow enough time to get a full degree... seems even with school credits he already had, he wouldve ended up short about 10 credits towards his AA.

If you are serious about being an officer stop wasting your time with that jabroni recruiter and go to school. after you have a BS or BA apply to OCS. While in school join ROTC. that will set you up very well. The enlisted recruiter does not have 'your' interests in mind.

ABSOFRIGGINLUTELY!!! The ROTC route, in school, will set you up nicely for OCS. I had 8 years under my belt by the time I graduated college. When I applied for OCS, because the last 5 were in the Guard, they considered me a civilian applicant, NO DICE! Make sure you do your homework before you sign a damn thing. There are enough vets around here who have gotten burned (I still have the scars) from the recruiters, we will GLADLY offer advice to someone willing to serve!!!!!:usa3

Mi Nat'l Guard 1987-1992 AH-1S Maintenance Sgt, though an officer candidate for some time.

The guard just didn't cut it for me. Not enough getting done except for summer camp. Back then they weren't sending Guard combat arms units overseas, really peeved a lot of us. Should have stayed active, but decided to come home, go to college and get married. Wouldn't ya know, I didn't marry her, or finish the school!! And I was supposed to re-enlist for linguist/interrogator school! Of course, they wanted me to learn Farsi, So I know I would have been over in Iraq. Happens, but I'm happy anyways...and married (2nd time) and finally did finish some dang college (2 yr). The Cav was something else...I loved my time there.

Thanks to all who served our country, regardless of what your service, role, or rank was. You rock because you answered your country's call to serve!

Raising your right hand to pledge your support to the nation is a coin toss. You never know what politicians may place you in harms danger or if there will be a war during your enlistment. The fact that you raised your hand to defend the constitution by joining the military makes you a hero in my opinion and should make should make you eligible to join any veterans organization. I don't care what the VFW or American Legion has for their eligilbility rules. A vet is a vet in my opinion. Restricting eligibility based on the dates you served or where you where at is stupid. You have no control of what congress will do or where the military will send you. It's one big coin toss when you raise you right hand. And that's all I have to say about the stupid eligibility requirements about VFW and the American Legion. I myself am a Legion member and am ticked off that those who served during "peace time" can't join the legion or VFW. They served, and they should be rewarded. End of rant.

Definition of a Veteran : A veteran - whether active duty, retired, or national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his, or her, life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America," for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it. Author unknown.
