thanks for responding, I am planning on being an officer in the royal marines, I know you have to be picked up on accuracy to attend sniping courses, but is it possible to become a sniper and an officer?

Thanks

Not in the US military. My first billet will be as a Scout/Sniper platoon commander. I go to Sniper command school, but I will not be behind the scope. Chances are you won't wither.

Intelligence Officers don't get glass time, and I've never heard of a non-enlisted DM.

Dude you know how hard it is to get MI Branch detale Infantry. **** man I'm pushing as hard as I can to get a cav scout unit attached to a airborne unit. Are you going to Adso for your branch? I know I'm going to Adso twice one for my branch and the second for my Grad School.

Marine Corps Officer Assignment is different than the Army's.

At TBS you compete for Officer MOSs. USMC Intelligence Officers' first billet is always S/S platoon commander. Second is Battalion/Regiment Command as an Intelligence Liaison or you can put your name in for Recon Selection. Third Billet is either a continued Recon career or a posting in the Pentagon.

And ADSO is sort of what I'm doing. I signed an Active Reserve Contract for 4 years while I go to school. I graduate and re-up with an Active Duty contract right before I ship for TBS.
