You won't be able to compete with that Captain or Major who breaks from the Corps and has the same aspirations "to land the big job". I would hope that someone in the Corps or wanting to be a Marine would be doing it just for the satisfaction of earning the Eagle, Globe and Anchor.
I did 4 years in 10th Special Forces Group as an Intel Analyst, prior to 9/11. In 4 years, during "peacetime", I did 4 overseas deployments in between SF training missions which are usually over a month long, all over the country, and are treated like deployments themselves. I don't know about the Marines, and can't speak for the regular Army, but I certainly was no office pogue.

Second, everyone I was in my section with - except for me because I had a city job lined up, and one friend who joined the Coast Guard - all work for government in some capacity. Three of those people did one hitch in the Army.

The jobs are out there, you just have to know where to find them and be willing to move around the country. My one friend makes nearly $100 working in a secure bunker in Colorado directing QRF for soldiers deployed worldwide. He did 4 years with me.

Again, this might not be the case for Marines, but it certainly is for Army guys, especially coming from SF.

I think my post was misconstrued...the OP posted like he was going to be a one and done enlistment guy or at least that is how I understood it to be...I just don't see a lot of one term enlistees getting jobs like that at all.

Theres a lot more than MARSOC and army infantry going on with this this job qual. There are A LOT of "special" assignments involved with it. Ones that you might not understand until you get into the job. PM me if you're interested.


I guarantee you you won't be an office brat. It will open doors. There are niches in every mos, and this has unique ones.

IF you are thinking of going MarSOC please PM me with any questions you may have. There isnt just MarSoc though for Marine Special Forces. MarSoc is just the Marines contribution to SOCCOM. MOS 0321 (Marine Recon) has been around for years and years and is just about as high speed as MarSoc.

And yes the 4 years active 4 years inactive does suck. Especially when uncle sam tells you to report in to Camp Pendelton on a monday following thanksgiving after you have already been out for almost 3 years so they have to get you while you have less than 1 year on IRR time. However some jobs that have heavy initial training time require 6 years active.

Also, this may have changed since I got out, but Counter Intel was only available for e-4 and higher. I contemplated to reenlist for a HET team but decided I was tired of deploying and wanted to start a family.

HET guys have my utmost respect.

Some deployments for CI guys will be things like if you are on a MEU, then you fly in before the boats arrive and things like that. Its not all just special forces stuff.

for clarification. im not decided on what my future will be with the military. i cant know until im in it. so no option is out the window because i will or wont be in the marines. all depends on what happens when it comes time.
and pacedogfl..i am going into it for all the right reasons. but, i do have to consider what my life is going to be like after the marines because whether or not i reup after i get in it will not be a life long career choice. while money and a good job are not why im going in they are deff a factor in the mos i choose.

I don't know if you are referring to them, but the Army has dress blues too.

Meh, personal opinion. I prefer the blue pants over the white. To me, the blue and white combination looks goofy.

Just give it some time. I had seven (plus a valorous unit award) after I was in for four years. Of course, that was the Army, so you may be in a different boat. I, in fact, did not like my dress uniform because of the random inspections. So I just took it to quartermaster's and left it there. Any time inspections came around, I just gave them the receipt showing it was at quartermaster's.
