    Point taken. My experience was on the line and the weekenders were all line, so anything I say is NOT universal.

    Now what would be messed up is, after all this, Sirc ends up at a MAW.

    if by messed up, you mean awesome.

    Seriously though, sirc, go talk to a recruiter, and like I've said before, if you're getting anything less then guaranteed e-2, you're getting screwed. You might even be able to snaggle e-3, depending on how good your recruiter is.

    Okay, nevermind. SKP said it all. Of course, he was at 29 Stumps which must have sucked hard. But most everything else I agree with.

    But really, you should go Army. I don't really think you'd like being a Corpsman, & you definitely are not hard enough to go 8404.
    & I don't want you to do it, honestly. It would honestly sully almost every good memory I have of it all.

    On the plus side, you'll be the wielder of the "Silver Bullet", which you'll likely enjoy.

    heheheheh, that's totally true. He'd probably love all the post-libo bore punch action too, huh? Man, if I never see a steel cotton swab again, it'll be too soon...

    Tho there was this one guy that came into the BAS with a terrible ear ache, & I eventually ended up fishing a bunch of old camo paint, a big ol' half-rotten bug of some kind, and what seems like a quarter cup of smelly ass pus & cerumen. Yeah, that was worse.

    Mmmm. I've never done either but if given the choice, I'd opt to be the giver rather than the receiver.

    Damn straight. Our 1st Sgt. always made sure the docs got a turn on all the gear.

    This thread is a moot point however. I doubt any branch would accept Sirc. That is, unless he was lying about the heart condition he made a big deal out of a few years ago.

    I'm not sure how much things have changed in the two years since I've gotten out, but Naval Reservists of all persuasions have a harder time getting into programs like FMF, not to mention making rank.

    HM's don't advance particularly fast either, and after a few years if you haven't put a crow on, you might find yourself coming up against something called Perform to Serve where they basically show your ass the door after a certain predetermined number of years if you haven't made rank.

    Still, play your cards right, keep your nose clean, and you might get lucky enough to get attached to a destroyer where you'll spend your days lancing boils, skating off in a BDS station, handing out no-shave chits to lazy fucks, giving yourself IVs after coming in from liberty seven shades of fucked up and berating people for not washing their hands after taking a ****.

    Plus, you'll get to spend a few months just outside of Chicago freezing your ass off and cursing the day you walked into the recruiter's office and said "That's a nice track suit. How can I get one of those?"
