    As competitive as commissioning programs are, I'd say you have zero chance. But, can't provide any specific examples or references for my opinion. In any event, you'll need a bachelors degree to be...

    Was not a grunt so can't talk about the MOS specifically. Except, lots of grunts leave with chronic overuse injuries like chronic back, knee, and ankle injuries due to the combat loads they must...

    Couple things.

    One of our 14 leadership traits is integrity - doing the right thing when nobody is watching or when it's not the popular thing to do. If you lack integrity, you probably should...

    It's been my experience, overturning a MEPS doc's ruling is rare (if it ever happens at all). But, nothing wrong with firing all the bullets in your magazine. As long as you have a recruiter willing...

    I agree. A professional UFC fighter is a unique case and may involve some liability issues. No issues for amateurs I'm aware of. If MMA is something you plan on pursuing as a reservist, you should...

    Not going to say Marine recruiters lie (never was one myself). But, they are trained salesmen selling a product to prospective buyers. Sometimes, the buyer only hears what they want to hear. In all...
