    @Huklebuk: I'm confused. How does he know his MOS will be 6111 (he apparently is not a reservist since he is asking about housing)? Didn't think active duty Marines could enlist for a specific MOS...

    Don't worry about it. There will be some who can't even do what you can in the pool. They want you to pass and you will keep trying till you do (you will get individual instruction if you need it)....

    With today's budget restraints, the Corps is not going to pay to have someone sent to a formal MOS school, trained, sent to their first permanent duty station, and then just a year later allow them...

    Not only does our SECDEF support cuts in troop strength, pay and benefits, and increases in healthcare costs - our Joint Chief of Staff General Dempsey (believe he is an Army general) had this to say...

    1. You cannot fight your friend's battles for him.

    I work on the campus of the University of Tennessee and have seen CIA and FBI recruiters here at job fairs (never actually talked to any of them).

    As Changster said, things improve the longer you stay in (rightfully so as rank should have its privileges). By the time you become a career Marine, your perspective changes about most things.

    Appears to me he is one of those who already has all the answers. They'll come on here and ask a question. But, as soon as they see an answer they don't like then they don't want to play anymore....

    It sucks but you need to get used to it. "Hurry up and wait" is a fact of life even in the USMC. Just because you put on our uniform does not mean things are going to happen on your schedule....
