Coming out of MOS school is the best window of opportunity for doing anything MOS related A/R package, IA, IMA, etc. As the months/years go by in being in the reserves, you lose what you trained. Check out the MARFORRES site and go to Global Billets for open billets.
If you're going to stay civilian and do the one weekend a month forever, blow the **** up out of your resume with your MOS school because thats really the only experience you have.
I wouldn't use your GI Bill until you get mob'd at least once, the 1606 sucks. Go on a deployment then use it, you rate a ****ton more money with 50% of post-911 than you do 1606.
in the end, if you want to make anything out of your time/career in the Marines, now is the time. Don't sit back because the reserve lifestyle will make you complacent and you will miss opportunities.
