LOL! I remember writing in that. Man have things changed!

As for Basic Training, MOS, all that...

he's made his choice and requested a "date" with a recruter. He is thinking MP or infantry, but likes MP better because he could go into law enforcement from that after serving. He wants to go to Basic this fall.

I called this official because he's decided (finally lol) which branch and is getting going on all the stuff he needs do now to enter. I see no reason for them to turn him down.

I think Infantry training can help with future law enforcement, but MP would be for sure OJT.

Full active duty, or reserves?

Not yet! Talk like that can get him into trouble in basic.
Now, as soon as he's passed his first army dinner, THEN he'll be a hero. :-D

I guess we'll find out in time, but if he goes MP he may.
