Prior Service USMC thinking of Army Reserve

I've been out since 02 and thinking about going reserve, got out honorably as an E-3, any advice?

I EAS'd in '02 as well and seriously considered the reserves. However I just know that "just 2 weekends a month" thing always would wind up on the wrong weekend... I want you to think real long and hard about looking in the mirror and not seeing "U.S. Marines" on your cammies. I know how that made me feel, how about you?

Don't do it. Like EmbarkChief said "I want you to think real long and hard about looking in the mirror and not seeing "U.S. Marines" on your cammies.". While I was AD in the Army we had a few "Former" Marines and you guys could never let it go. You guys are so indoctrinated and don't know how to do anything but be a JarHead!

Why not join the Marine Reserves?

I have a 50+ year old cousin who's in a NG Armor company and he was prior service USMC. SOB is heading to Iraq in 3 months...

I have an RE3P reenlistment code and I'm having a real hard time getting time with a Marine Prior Service Enlisted Recruiter. Army seemed real quick to set up an appointment.

I'm on the fence, might just push and see if i can't get back in where I belong.

What's the deal with rank, how long after I'm out can i still transfer it over?

Will I have to run basic again?

I've heard that, I was wondering if it were something I could get over.

I see you're a VW salesman. When are they bringing the TDI back in the Passat?

You will never have to go through "basic" for any of the other services. On the rank thing you will have to get with the recruiter. Before Iraq kicked off again they (recruiters) were calling me trying to get me back in uniform, FWIW they said I could keep my rank (E-5). However I had only been out a year or so at that time. Let us know what they say about that, I'm a little curious myself.

They promised us TDI Jettas and Jetta Sportwagens in January..... Now they say June/July.

Passats are looking mid 09 run MAYBE.

To many new car releases going on right now for them to focus on the diesel (don't ask they're stupid, i have a folder on my desk with tons of peoples names and numbers wanting to preorder TDI Jettas).

Tiguan - April
Jetta SW - May/June
Jetta TDI - June/July
Passat CC - September
Routan (chrsyler Town and Country with VW spin) -September/October

i ets'd from active duty in 98 from the army. when i signed back into active in 03, i was allowed to keep my rank, not do basic, and pick an interesting mos.


we had an ex-marine in my unit at fort benning. if he hadn't ever told me, i would've never known.

the army drill sergeants sure jump when they find out you have family who are up there in the marines. life got alot easier when they found out my dad was a sergeant major in the marines and they walked him every where when he came to visit on family day. i got treated way better then those reserve drill sergeants did

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.
