Just giving you information that was never given to me. Ive had a pretty lackluster enlistment and its partially my fault. If I could go back and do things over, with what I know now.. I would've had a much better enlistment..
They say that you get out of the Marines whatever you put into it, that statement is doubley true for the reserves. Theres a **** ton of opportunities out there, especially for intel. Youve just got to find and take them. Make the most of intel though, milk it for all you can because there are a lot of high paying jobs out there afterwards if you have the experience/cred. Fill the next 6 years of your life with resume boosting schools, courses and experiences. Then worry about life afterwards.. Colleges/civilian careers will always be available, but you never know when the next school seat, deployment, or billet will be open again.
