Hello all, I am hoping someone can satisfy my curiosity. I know a guy who is a 64 pilot and also a prior service Marine. He told me from start to finish his packet took less than 40 days to complete. The recruiter I am currently working with told me that step 1, before I go to MEPS, is to obtain my records from the Marine Corps, which makes sense. However, the recruiting office said that it would take a minimum of 2 weeks for my records to come in due to MEPS being understaffed. Is there any way I can expedite this process? I'm not trying to be one of these people you hear about taking 10 months to put a package together... Thanks for the advice.
Hello All, New to the forum, and a few days deep into my research/packet assembly. 5 yrs AD Navy Aviation Structural Mechanic(AM). Got out in 2011 as an E-5, started college with hope to get into flight school. Still in college, life happened, too old (31 in March) for Navy pilot. Being that I was/am in the Navy aviation community and I am now a civilian, I know a few Navy pilots that I could get LOR's from. Recruiter said "LOR from ANY source..." would do to meet req's. For civilians, is it necessary to have Army WO's LOR's? Will I be more competitive with both Army/Navy? Thanks in advance for any advice.
