Well...do you want to stay alive?

 

Intel.

 

Don't care so much either way?

 

Pilot or Bomb Squad.

 

*chuckle*...joking of course..but...also serious at the same time.

 

Intel would probably be your "safest" bet...provided you are on the INTERPRETATION AND ANALYSIS side...if you are on the "collection" side...THAT could get REAL "interesting."

 

Cheers sir! And best of luck with your decision.

Joining the long line of military service in my family by joining the Marine Corps.. I'm stuck on what my MOS should be (job).

 

Chopper Pilot

Bomb Squad

Intel

 

Serious thought please?

 

I would think Chopper Pilot would be interesting at first, all depends on if you like flying all the time....it may get old after awhile.

 

Bomb Squad is probably a lot to learn, but overall a laid back job. I would hope.....see The Hurt Locker.

 

Intel--is that just computers?

YOu will have a stronger desire to do one of the three, pick that one. Also, have you had some experience in all three? That way you can see what is done in each field and make a choice.

bomb squad is probably like being a fire fighter in a way where as you don't have to do anything for long periods of time but when you have to go work its pretty intense. to be honest i would be scared out of my mind to disarm a charged bomb and would probably pull the wrong wire

 

Well then, you are not hired.

Since when do the marines let you pick? When i joined the military 10 years i talked to them. They said all MOS's were decided at the need of the corps and you really dont have any say over it. Sometime near the end of basic training they tell you what your MOS will be.

 

Did you actually talk to a recruiter yet? If so, did he specifically say you could choose your MOS for sure? Because those guys can be very misleading. You have to nail them down on the specifics of your contract before you sign anything.

You do know that you can't fly a Helicopter in the Army unless you are a Warrant Officer' date='

right?[/quote']

 

not going into the army, the marines and yes to fly a helicopter you can just make it your MOS... training gets done at ACT and where your stationed.

This^^^^

 

I have known several individuals over the years that went into the military under the assumption they will be able to pick and choose their specialist training and even where they will be stationed because of the BS told to them by recruiters. And it NEVER ended the way they wanted it to.

 

And the wording of your "contract" means nothing. Once you join, you become the property of the U.S. military, You have no contactual rights and have no choice but to accept where they put you. The military has absolutely zero legal incentive to fulfill any promises made to you.

 

Check out the number of recruiters who have committed suicide over the past 5 years because of the lies they were forced to tell recruits before sending them off to Hell on Earth and their own demise.

I would be real cautious and not get your hopes up too high. 2 of those jobs need real high ASVAB scores to even qualify for no matter whats in your contract.

 

And like Joshdfs says, they dont actually have to honor it anyway. Especially the marines in this current enviroment. If theres any way they can manage it you can bet your **** that you will be basic rifleman, infantry.

 

Hell or worse, when i joined they lied and said you couldnt decide what kind of infantry to be. Like a fool i believed them and wound up humping a damn 80 lb mortar around on top of all the other combat gear.

 

I would do a lot of research outside of talking to the marine salesman to make sure you have everything squared away.

Consider what jobs will give you skills for a post-military career, as well as if you actually think you will like doing each of the jobs. Think about the day-to-day tasks of them. There is lots to research online.

 

Actual pilots are usually officers, which require you to have a college degree of some sort.

 

IF you have a super high ASVAB and are enlisting, you can negotiate both your job and extra money to pay for school (on top of guaranteed GI bill money). You have an attorney look at it, and you have multiple signers. This will 98% guarantee you get to do the job they promise.

 

If you are just walking in and enlisting, and your ASVAB is below 95, you may want to seriously consider why you are joining. You have to really want to die for your country, This is by no means a bad thing, but you just have to be very clear on what to expect.

 

My husband is a Marine and scored 99, and got to choose his position and got a choice of 2 locations. He wishes he negotiated more for college, but the gi bill was enough to pay for his degree and the military experience he had qualified him for a post-military job he actually enjoys doing and pays the bills.
