    Just sign up as active duty from the start. As of now, the only way a reservist can go active duty (NOT AR), is by getting selected for EOD or MARSOC. We are downsizing right now.

    You'll **** off your recruiter but it's your life. I believe you can still drop out of the DEP and sign an active duty contract when available. The new FY started so slots are out there.

    PLC is a 6week and 6 week course, although I am sure you know that. The 1st 6 weeks is essentially the easier version of the last 6 weeks.

    The fastest way to become an officer, is to go in as one. Joining the reserves in hopes of you having a better chance of getting selected is not worth the time. Being a 'prior' does not make you...

    Reserves fill empty spaces attached to an active duty unit, unless the whole reserve unit is deploying. Deploying as a reservist is fairly easy, or not deploying, for that matter.

    It would be nice to have more money, but I think we're paid just fine. I look at my friends who are the same age (20) and I am almost doubling or tripling their pay as a single LCpl on active orders....

    One of them is the USMCR "good cookie", the other is the AFRM (blue/yellowish). The AFRM you get when you deploy (M), or stay in for 3 years(Hourglass). Same with the good cookie, that's if you don't...

    We're full on active slots right now, especially infantry. If you really want to be active 0300, then wait until October when the new year starts and try then, or try at least 2-3 months before hand.

    That guy had a lot of time on his hands, but it is still a work of art. This is pretty much a nitro R/C car engine only on a much more complex scale.
