don't think about it this way. PLAN on a deployment ESPECIALLY if you are going in the Army.

Marine deployments are TYPICALLY 6 months, Army...well I'll let you ask them

That being said though, I would have to say less than 10% of my reserve unit has been deployed. And those that HAVE been deployed, bugged the **** out of someone to get deployed.

and Scout Sniper is a MOS In the Marines.. I think it may be 0321 but im not to sure

Obviously I'm going to say Marines have the best Infantry
wow dude, how long have you been out of SOI, 20 minutes? It sure sounds like it to me. While you ARE right, we are NOT an occupying force, all the other **** is a moot point.

I think ANYONE can agree with this. I am a reserve data guy in the ****ing airwing, and I have combat experience.

okay, okay... it was off the top of my effing head... I'm sorry. I must have been thinking of the 81mm something-or-other when i typed that.

...still... if it's better than eric99 could do, then I feel very proud of my POG self. Bet ya can't name more than three MOS's in the 21xx field.





....and eric99BL and genrex.... a reservist data winger calling out a boot, and vice versa... man....the things you see on the internet.

You know I'm just messing that was pretty BA for a non-grunt stuck in stumps....

I can't even name 1 in the 21 field, I just know 03's.

Till I looked it up I didn't know what the Marine Gunner's MOS was nor anything other then the 0302
