Aww dude true story, true story... I'm out with com/nav because there was only 1 in the shop that day, and one of the comm antennas on the belly was completely disconnected... So we connected it, and then realized that EVERY SCREW HOLE WAS STRIPPED OUT... And this was what we call a "red ball" where the jet is powered up, ready to taxi and then something breaks (or in this case, nobody saw it until they were ready to taxi) so homie runs and grabs the B 1/2 (kinda like Hondabond only black) and some ******* speedtape (kinda like duct tape but shiny) and I b 1/2 it, he tapes it, and it flies... At the time we had no idea where the jet's destination was...
It comes back about a week later from AFGHANISTAN with the speed tape still intact!!!
We were like: HELL YES! Speedtape to the sandbox and back holding a com antenna baby... That **** is like JB weld!
(Last week I also fixed a H.U.D. With super glue lol)

One of our birds was stuck overseas due to shrapnel damage...The mechanics cut up Coke cans to cover the holes, and then used the speed tape to hold them on. Got the job done, and got the plane home.

Hahaha... No need to worry mang, if the **** is important it gets fixed RIGHT before it goes anywhere... And if it's something big, they'll fly it around home station for a few hours to make sure whatever you replaced works again.
Besides, damn near everything has redundancy so if you lose one of anything, you normally have 3 more. (including ENGINES LOL)

And with the Comm antenna, once again, it's not the only Comm antenna ya got, so no worries, just pick another one.

Officer = better pay and more opportunities when you get out, its a great idea. I was 4 min from joining the army as an officer I even went to leadership training for 30- days in fort knox but i diden sign a contract so when i was offered a good non military job i declined there offer to pay for my MBA and be in for a 4 year contract.

For you AF guys out there...

I have 2 years and X amount of months left in the Marine Corps. When I EAS, I plan on going back home and signing up with the Air Force reserves. (There is an AF base in my home town)

Now, If I want to go back into Active Duty, how difficult would it be for me to cross over? I've heard that the Marines that try to cross over don't find it that easy. Also, would the Air Force keep me stationed in my home town if I request? I live in Tucson, AZ... Davis Monthan AFB is there. (I'd hate to request West coast and be sent to North Carolina... again) If I left the Marine Corps as an E-4, would that rank transfer over? Thanks guys.

I'm a 6300 (Aviation Electronics) currently waiting to class up in Pensacola, FL. It's a very demanding job in terms of knowledge. Lots of math! I chose this MOS because I've always wanted to work on planes. Depending on what unit we get attached to, we can potentially see combat (yes airwingers see it too).

The Marine Corps isn't for everyone. I'll tell you that right now. With everything you do, no matter how crappy it may be, they remind you that you are first and foremost, a Marine.

It feels dam good to be one, too.

I've met quite a few ex Marines in the Air Force. I don't really know how hard it's going to be to transfer over since the Air Force is getting rid of 20,000 people right now. If you do manage to transfer over you might lose a stripe. I think they do that because it's easier to make rank in the other branches but I'm not sure.

If you sign up with the reserves and they have a job in your hometown for you, then I don't see why you wouldn't be able to get it. But if you go active duty, forget about it. You'll be sent wherever they want to send you. You can request DM but who knows if you'l get it or not. So far I've been lucky and have got at least #1 or #2 on dream sheet.

Seems I'll probably be going into Air Force reserves then. My Uncle was an army recruiter at the time I joined the marine corps, he said he could put in writing on contract my duty station... and pretty much whatever I wanted to an extent. Not sure if the Air Force was is this way. With the Marine Corps, you just gotta take the shaft and be happy with it.

The Air Force used to do this but they've stopped. I'm sure it COULD be done but you'd have to be the son of a senator or something. Now they just give you the shaft like the Marines do.

As far as the Reserves goes...make sure you're ready for a 1 year activation with half of that time spent in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kuwait. But I guess that depends on what unit you're assigned to and what your job is. In this day and age, being National Guard or Reserves is just the same as being Active Duty.

Indeed... I don't think you'll lose a stripe though if you go AF reserves... SRA (E-4) takes like a year or so to obtain in the Reserves... After E-5 though, it's all about what "slot" you're in to get any more rank.

To answer a question wrt getting your ASVAB scores. Go to your local MPF and ask for a data rip...or you can go on AFPC and look it up.
