    No...

    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.

    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...

    If all you are worried about is picking up rank faster and your career in the Corps maybe you shouldn't be a Marine.

    Have fun in the fleet with that kind of attitude!
