Hello Marines,

I just swore in an open contract yesterday in brooklyn. The thing is they gave me my ship date which is May 28th, 2011. Would i be able to get it moved up or delayed on request? I dont mind waiting but a 10 month wait seems like alot can happen/change in that time frame and im commited right now. I have also heard from Marines that going to Parris Island in the Summer is the most Brutal thing you will ever do. Can i talk to my recruiter about it? Does it depend on your MOS how soon you ship?

Thanks in advance, Yankeeloon200

Why an 'open contract'?
At least you have something.
Yes, No, and Maybe.
Sure is a long time. Get in shape, mentally and physically.
It is hot at PI in May. Not as hot as one of the 'stans, however.
Sure you can.
You don't have an MOS.

Just be lucky you have a ship date. Per the rest, ask your recruiter
