    Whatever you do DON'T GO OPEN CONTRACT if it is offered.

    When I was going through MCT they hearded us together and read off the MOS Schools we would be reporting to. Those who went open contract, MOSTLY went to armor school.

    However, 2 poor guys were read off "MOS XXXX, Military Sanitation Engineer" or something (can't recall the exact job name or MOS #) and everyone was like, "What the Bleep is that?"

    The troop handler pointed to some guy driving one of those little tanker trucks driving up to the porta potties in 52 area and said, "You get to suck s**t for the next 4 years."

    I was amazed, probably now that is all contracted out, but back then, it was actual Marines doing it.

    Poor guys were so downcast, "we joined up to be trained killers and we get THIS?"

    Plus they had to deal with us calling them "s**t suckers" from then on.

    Id be more than happy with your situation. You have about 8 months to dedicate yourself to gettin in incredible shape and learning all you will learn in boot camp. There should be no reason why u dont have a 300 pft by then and know all the knowledge needed. Good luck

    Like all these devil Dogs and leather Necks before me and those that received the title Marine, they are all right. Some are jus there to get the number and htye dont care cause they probably had a s**ty MOS and want others to pay for it, not all, me im Motor-T, and i love it but got stuck with a non-deploy able unit. Don't let them hustle you or play games with yoru contract, one thing that scared my recrutier is i brought in a lawer. Just a idea that worked for me and ended up shipping out to boot and got the MOS i wanted, now i have to Lateral move befor i have to re-up. Take care and keep your head up and get ready Boot camp ant a joke its the real deal.

    WTF?? Did you bring a lawyer or your English teacher?? To help you read the paperwork you were signing?? Every Marine joins under an Open enlistment, and is later assigned a Program of their choosing... Good luck with your issues, and if you don't like what we have to offer, there are several other branches of the Military for you to check out... S/F

    Your recruiter is trying to make a quota per month on enlistments, he is going to dog you until you sign on the dotted line. Dont give in one inch until you get what you want in writing. If it is not in writing, walk.... There are other Marine recruiters out there that have more patience and can wait with you until October.

    I have to agree with you Gunny! Only base civilian personnel such as myself handles all that crap! And when your in the field and there is no port-o-jons around, the corpman handles where the crap goes and any Marine can get in a working party to make the trenches for the crappers! googled it and i got an Army web site for their Medical Corps! WE ARE NOT THE ARMY!!!! WTF!!!
