    They don't put you on probation unless there has been a conviction of some sort. Pleading guilty or no contest is a conviction. Something is missing in your story.

    The letters are called contract codes. I do not know what is what now as the codes changed within the past six-months or so. Poolees for active duty cannot pick their specific MOS, only an MOS...

    Yes, you should tell the recruiter that you think you have eczema. Never lie. Then you should go to a dermatologist and find out for certain. Eczema is a disqualifying condition, and the military...

    If I remember correctly from my Ex's days in ROTC, those texts were issued as part of the program and had to be returned. I've never seen ROTC textbooks for sale, which isn't to say one couldn't find...

    This is news to us in Florida. I live an hour away from Sanford, so I'm sure the local news would have picked up on such an indictment. Plus, how could they indict her before the trial verdict came...

    Your profile is a little thin. You might want to fix that.

    Anything is possible. Have you talked to your command about a transfer or a FAP slot? Nobody here can do that for you. Remember too, the...

    First you've got to get through boot camp, MCT, and whatever MOS school. THEN you have to hope you will be allowed (or want) to re-enlist AND get accepted into whichever of those MOS' you choose.

    Don't worry, be happy. At about the 10-minute point in boot camp you'll be a pro at answering properly. Otherwise you'll be rode hard and put away wet (and sandy). Either way, you'll be fine.

    From where I sit, you've probably waited too long to enlist whether active or reserves. The paperwork and waiver alone will take two-months.

    Have you talked to a Marine recruiter at all?
