    I am starting to consider what I will do after I re-enlist. So far I am considering the following:

    MSG Duty - Marine Security Guard 3 year B-Billet in some foreign land

    Recruiting Dugy - also 3 year B-Billet somewhere in the states, hopefully back home so I can be close to FamiRRy

    SOI Instructor - School of Infrantry instructor in either California or North Carolina, also 3 year B-Billet

    No B-Billet and just try to go to Iraq again which I can probably do now if I wanted to.

    I want to hear experiences that you guys have had and any incentives that you might have asked for when you re-enlisted. They are giving away lots of bonuses already so a few grand in my pocket is guaranteed already.

    Thanks! :wavey:

    If you don't like you current MOS nows the time to ask for a latmove + bonus. I got offered like 38k to do CID, I think counter intel is up to 60k now. I dunno what kind of stuff you are into but stay away from SOI Instructor, that should be obvious though. :dunno:

    I'd assume you know all this shit already if your up for reenlistment already but at this point no one cares how many times you've been to Iraq so unless you're just going for fun it's pretty much a waste of time career wise.

    Already signed my intent not to re-up but we talked for a good while about my options before I said fuck it I'm out. Just make sure you milk your CRS for everything he's got before you sign that paper.

    The ONLY FUCKING WAY i'm going to reenlist in this bitch is if they let me go on MSG duty. I'm going on a MEU(SOC) to Iraq and i'll be there before Thanksgiving, as soon as I get back i'm putting in my package for embassy duty.

    Yeah i'm definitely making a Lat Move ... I was looking at Spanish Cryptologyst, 56k Bonus but i doubt i'll get the Top Secret Clearance for it ... but i've been lookin in the new MARADMIN that came out with all the bonuses for each MOS and Lat Move bonuses as well so I'm going to do that for sure ..

    I really wanna do MSG Duty cause I absolutely hate just being in the states for long periods of time ... I liked my 2 years in Oki and I wanna see more of the world ... even if its on a "hardship" duty, I tend to make the best of things regardless of situation.

    when you say milk my CRS ... what exactly do you mean ?? :mamoru:

    What's your MOS? I'm assuming your an 03. It's about that time for me as well and I am seriously looking into either moving to MARSOC or doing the HET thing. Both of which will put me in the zone for staff, and I get to get away from the line for awhile.

    Well obviously you aren't gonna give the man a freakin handjob (unless you really want those benefits). :greddy:

    Seriously though you can get a lot more for re-upping than most CRS will offer up front. Dosen't make sense to me since you'd think they'd want to entice you with offers to keep you in but I've seen a bunch of Marines walk out of the CRS office with crap like a 10k bonus still stuck in a job they hate.

    All I'm saying is if you re-up make sure you get what you want out of it, treat him like a car salesman. It's pretty much your only chance to be completley control so take advantage of it.

    yeah i'm not 03 and trying to get into it is sort of enticing actually but from what I hear, grunts hate life for the most part but love what they do ... i'd rather love life and hate my job ... which is where i'm at now ..

    i'm a 3043 - Supply Admin Clerk aka DeskJockey/Pencilpusher/Keyboardbitch

    job sucks, doesnt require much, just tedious shit ... i was looking through the jobs that are offering bonuses for Lat Moves and only 2 were appealing and one i cant get cause i wont get Top Secret the other is UAV 7314, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle ... from what i've read so far its an intel type job ... if I am able to make a LAT move into that, then I will and ask for more shit if i can cause i'm definitely getting out of Supply even though i could probably be a SSgt in like 2 yrs if I keep my ass out of trouble, :hsd:

    Pretty much sums it up. Although if I do end up doing 20 years, there's no fucking way i'm going to stay an 03.

    I was just having a bad today. Today I woke up and kissed my Chesty Puller portrait on my wall, and today is another glorious day in the Marine Corps and i'm motivated to do 30 and retire as a Master Guns:mamoru.
