The only thing I know about 25M is it's a Multimedia Illustrator. (?) Never heard of the job, never knowingly met one. Artist? The one thing I DO know - it's not Airborne Infantry!

Could you have waited for the MOS you wanted? Sometimes only 2 months or maybe a bit longer can make all the difference. What isn't available today might be a bonus MOS a few months later. That happens a lot with Combat Arms MOSs.

It sounds to me that you'll get to Airborne School. I'm surprised they didn't put it in your contract to go right after AIT. I suppose now that they know exactly what unit you're going to they want that unit to pay for the school.

Are you practicing making propaganda posters for TV & film? Doesn't that kind of sound what you might be doing?

Default Good news

Glad to see that everything went well for you. I am 36 and got out of the Navy in 1999. Can you tell me a little about how your talk with the career counselor went. What it mean is did he give options and how were they presented to you?

Congrats again.
