It was a joke, not to be taken seriously. I appreciate the service of all our service members. I apologize to our Marines if it has offended you. It was a stupid, failed joke.
Please, Marines, don't make a version of this directed torwards me saying " Halp us Power Serj, we're fooked up in tha head." Like this:
Yes I was asking about 35M (previously 97E) and did already sign up for it in the Army Reserve and will be leaving for BCT in September, and will be reporting to Ft. Hauchuca afterwards for AIT. I'm going to inprocessing on Thursday and will be attending drill on June 7th. I can't wait.

So, I recently just got done with MEPS processing and swore in.
I have about a month before I'm off to Benning and I'm concerned.
Maybe it was the lack of sleep coupled with mental / physical exhaustion but I nearly bombed on the duck walk.
I was wondering if anyone has any exercise that will help strengthen my muscles around the knees. I was thinking of just hitting the squats machine at my gym but I dunno.
To be honest, any good conditioning or OSUT pre-training suggestions anyone has would be of great help. Last thing I want to do is get the platoon punished for my lack of endurance / physical performance. I really want to ace the PT test before shipping.
what do you guys think is a MOS that will give me the most civi job expearance in the USMC? I have been thinking and I dont want to go in and hate it, because I would just have 4 years of infantry(what I was planning on doing) and that does nothing for me in the civi world. But If I go in and hate it at least I would have some hands on work for a job on the outside.
Well that time which has had me alternating between piss my pants excited and sh*t my pants nervous for months draws near. Over the past few months several members of the MP.net community have given me great advice on what to expect and what to prepare for at Marine Corps Officer Candidate School. I was wondering if anybody had any last minute advice for myself and/or any others heading to Quantico in the next few days to begin training.
Also, thank you to all the members of the community who have helped me/us get ready for this challenge. I know at least one good friend of mine who left last Saturday for OCS who stumbled upon my old post about Bates Lites and the advice that was given there, and I know he is thankful for your posts, and I'm sure there are others reading who are getting ready to ship out soon to Quantico. Thanks again and any advice is appreciated.
