    Yeahh, easy for you to say. I wanted to go work for the ARC. But whats honestly stopping me from goin into the Marines now besides a couple of needed waivers? Nobody significant really. My ex didnt want me, and he was a grunt... Nobody else.... ahh well.

    Well I will tell you NBC school is difficult at best and includes alot of math so if your math skills aren't that good and you do want this MOS get some help before you leave for boot camp. Nothing is out of your reach if you do the work to achieve it. That is the biggest lesson of boot camp, that the only limitations we have are the ones we put on ourselves. Lastly STOP with the friggin combat comments. If it happens so be it, if it doesn't than consider yourself lucky. If you behave yourself maybe I will tell you a little personal story of why you should be careful of what you wish for!

    Sorry it's taken me a couple of days to reply I didn't know you had left me a message and I don't check my profile all that often. I think the first thing you should do is try to decide now what interests you now. We all at different times in our lives are interested in different things. As a quick example I got involved in the Fire Service shortly after I got out of the Marine Corps and believe me I love every minute of working but after a while it got a little boring. Fires really aren't that common these days with detectors, fire safety and safety's built into products to prevent fires means that they are not as often an occurance as they used to be. That being what it is I had the opportunity to get involved with EMS about five years into my career so I jumped at it. Now I am an EMT instructor and a Critical Care technician and if I had to do it all over again knowing what I know now I would have joined the Navy and gone Corpsman and requested FMF. I never regretted my decision to join the Marine Corps and now I wouldn't trade that time for anything, however the way my life is progressing further and further into the medical field it probably would have been a better starting point from Corpsman and I may have realized my natural affinty for EMS earlier. Life has a way of working out, it really won't matter what MOS you pick because the Marine Corps will give you the skills needed to excel in any endeavor after you get out. Pick something that you think you would really like to do and go for it. The experiences you have there might lead you into another area altogether and the only prerequisite you will need for law enforcement or firefighting will have been being a Marine.
