    Hey man, I read your post and it sucks you got denied. I will also need a drug waiver, hopefully we both end up at boot camp soon.

    Thomas,

    No MARINE apparently has yet told you this: There is NO PREPARATION for being a MARINE....that is what Boot Camp is for. It transforms us all from whatever we were into M...most...A...awesomely...R...respected...I...ind ividuals...N...needed...E...everywhere
    That's what WE are and that's where we go. Want to be a MARINE? Go enlist and go to Boot Camp. When you graduate you'll be one of " The Few, The Proud, The MARINES. Always remember, We not only protect this world; WE PROTECT OUR OWN!

    Hey, I saw your post on the Ask A Marine forum and being that I am not a Marine I can't post, but I had some additional answers for you. As far as pilot contracts, fixed wing are 10 years and rotary are 6 years, and that is upon winging. To actually get to winging can take 2-4 years of training, depending on the aircraft and wait time between schools. You will need to obtain a 4 year degree and get selected for OCS and then complete TBS before starting training to be a pilot. Most of the pilots entered OCS with a flight contract (law and ground are the other officer contracts). Very few, if any, slots are open for pilots once in TBS (ground contract selection happens in TBS). Also obtaining a degree when enlisted has its own set of challanges. My fiance finished his enlisted contract before heading off to OCS and finished his 4 year degree as a reservist. Bottom line, being a Marine pilot is a career because of the long contract time involved. Also, I know my fiance had his college loans paid off as part of his officer contract, although those types of incentives can be inconsistent may not be available anymore. Hopefully that helps!
