    yes for both, enlisted recruiters won't talk with you until you're 17 I believe. An OSO won't even look at you unless your a Freshmen in college and at least 18/19 years old.

    but what I explained that you'd be doing sounds more appealing??......ok, have fun with that. I can guarantee your attitude will change after a few months in the fleet with no real opportunity to...

    I have not heard of a 4x4 contract in the Reserves.

    The MOS you get in the reserves is limited to what is available at your local reserve unit which you will get contracted to. If it is not an...

    There will always be the AD vs. Reserve Marine banter, just like the the Grunt vs. POG.

    One thing the AD side fails to see is that reservists do all of the exact same annual training. We do rifle...

    I don't disagree at all. I wish there was an easy universal solution to the many problems we face in the Corps today. But there's not.
