    Met the Recruiter Today

    Found out quite alot of info today. My chances of deployment are 50/50. Actually I wouldn't mind it, it would be quite a switch from everyday normal life. If I can get a waiver for age and for an old knee condition I'm about 95% sure I'll sign. The only reason I'm not at 100% is because my wife hasn't gave me her final opinion yet. I learned today that my financial situation would be no problem, in fact with all the perks you get with dependants I'd be making out about the same. It also looks like combat engineering for a MOS as well. He told me a week for an answer on the waivers. Really got my fingers crossed.

    Good Luck I shall sticky this thread so you can keep us on the up and up on things.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    I just want you to really think about this. If you get deployed you won't see your wife for a very extended period of time.

    Just think long and hard.

    Personally I would not do it.

    True. When I find out if I get the waiver or not then it's serious discussion time. I would be gone 13 weeks for boot, home two weeks, and then 12 weeks for engineering school. If deployed I would be gone for 7 months. I know it'll be rough but 10 years from now when I have a LE job and can call myself a Marine it will have been worth it.

    This week. I'm calling the recruiter Tues and see if he wants me to go ahead and take the ASVAB. A good score might sway any negative thoughts.

    We didn't get it in the ass. We got 4 in each arm. Hold still and it won't hurt my eye....
    We also got inoculated on one shoulder with smallpox if I remember right.

    Well, I'm supposed to hear about my waivers tomorrow, according to my recruiter.
    Yeah, like I really believe I'll get an answer that fast.
