    No. I retired in 1995. Know a few active duty Marines but none in the intel field.

    As a reservist, your options are more limited. You may have to make some tough decisions. Lesson learned is - don't rush/take your time and make sure your decision is the best for you.

    If by MSG, you mean Marine Security Guard, that job is not a primary MOS (it's a secondary MOS) and not something one is eligible for out of bootcamp. There is no MOS school for it. Normally, one...

    They will not let you roll your sleeves. When it comes time, you will be taught by your NCO's. You can also learn how to do it on youtube videos.

    No problem - curious to know what she says. If you can think of anything else I'll try to answer. If your husband has questions about the school he can PM me too.

    Visit a recruiter and see what they have to offer. You don't have much leverage since you only have a week to work with. You'll need to make some decisions quickly. Let us know what they say.
