    Is it possible to get your boot date delayed/moved up?

    Hello Marines,

    I just swore in an open contract yesterday in brooklyn. The thing is they gave me my ship date which is May 28th, 2011. Would i be able to get it moved up or delayed on request? I dont mind waiting but a 10 month wait seems like alot can happen/change in that time frame and im commited right now. I have also heard from Marines that going to Parris Island in the Summer is the most Brutal thing you will ever do. Can i talk to my recruiter about it? Does it depend on your MOS how soon you ship?

    Thanks in advance, Yankeeloon200

    • Why an 'open contract'?
    • At least you have something.
    • Yes, No, and Maybe.
    • Sure is a long time. Get in shape, mentally and physically.
    • It is hot at PI in May. Not as hot as one of the 'stans, however.
    • Sure you can.
    • You don't have an MOS.


    Illegitimi Non Carborundum!!

    Just be lucky you have a ship date. Per the rest, ask your recruiter
