I've read through about 20 pages of posts on this site and only managed to find one situation that kind of applied to me. I'm looking for more specific advice for my situation.
So I served 4 years in the USMC and got out to goto school for mech. engineering. Because of this I have currently been out of the military for too long so I need to go back to school in order to apply for WOCS as 153A. I am looking for advice about what job to select.
I have talked to an enlisted guard recruiter and a WOSM and they both agree I need to enlist. I was given a few options.
1. Enlist 15T (blackhawk mech.) to familiarize myself with aircraft, but also so I am in an aviation unit.
2. Enlist 12B. (combat eng.) If I don't pass a flight physical or some other unforseen issue comes up I would like to be a commissioned combat eng.
3. Choose 09S option. (commission, choose eng. branch) Ideally choose accelerated OCS. If I cant be a WO pilot then I would like to spend my 20 years or so in the guard with a commission.
4. Enlist 92F. (fueler) I enlisted in the USMC with the hopes of being a combat eng. but somehow was given a fueler position. 92F is army equivalent. The job was stupid, but i'm told it will get me to an aviation unit the fastest (6 weeks) so that I can drop a package.
I'm 28 and plan on joining something within the next 3 months. I want to be able to put together a competitive package. I don't mind taking the long way around and going 09S and choosing eng. branch if having a commission would be an advantage on a board. I'm open to other recommendations with a brief explanation of why to choose it. Any advice is welcome.
Thank you in advance
