    I just graduated USMC SOI (School of Infantry - Infantry Training Battalian - 0341 Mortarman) and they already have a spot reserved for me in theater (combat zone.)

    I'm currently at Camp Lejeune training and getting gear ready for our deployment. I will meet up with my unit :x: who is already in country. I should be back around October.

    If anyone has any questions about joining the Marines, let me know I just went through the process.

    See some of you devils in the sandbox :bigthumb:

    Congrats! PIMP just got back from the sandbox. He can probably tell you where the porn is stashed. :naughty:

    :cool:

    MSG duty is something I really want to do while i'm in, my recruiter told me that PFC's can now become MSG's so hopefully i'll be able to do it early in my career. What's your MOS and rank if you don't mind me asking?

    0481, PFC.

    They take PFCs now but you gotta be locked on pretty damn good, they'll give you a meratorius promotion to lance after you graduate the school. I'm just waiting till I pick up lance in a few months, they've had me on back to back deployments so it's been hard to get the paperwork in. Going to Korea thursday and probably going back when the next op goes. That's how it goes when you have seven people in your platoon. :dunno:
