    I'm in the same boat as you.

    I'm most attracted to Marine Corps, but I've heard they're the least likely to give out medical waivers of all the branches, and i've had two acl reconstructions and have titanium screws in my knee now, so i have a feeling I won't get in :(

    If the Marines don't take me, I think I might become a WO and do WOFT.

    I'd want to be either a 0311 (Infantry) or 0321 (Recon) (Marines MOS. Army is 11B and 19D for similar MOS I believe.)

    Anything in Army Inteligence is 35 series. The best thing to start out in is as an analyist and then after a couple of years you can switch to something else. All of the services have intel MOS's. The Air Force is the way to go..

    Air Force Heavy equipment operator just went over 20 years, currently in Iraq JBB til Nov. All the services are good. I usually work for the Army but have worked for the Marines and Navy. All depends on what you want to do and how intense you want your experience. If you want a bonus do it quick I hear there all going away.

    Hey, were you at Cherry Point? Looks like you are an AE for AV-8s - if so, I was just up the flight line from you on Prowlers (also an AE). I left at the end of 2005.

    Good luck in recruiting school.
