My name is David and I served in the Navy as an Aircrewman on C2A Greyhounds from 2004 to 2009. I was stationed at NAS Norfolk at VRC-40 and VRC-30 at NAS North Island. I enlisted in the Army in January and leave for basic on April 11th. The only MOS they offered me after numerous unsuccessful attempts to get into the Army was 14T. I had trouble getting in as the availability for an E4 prior service with 5 years in was sporadic at best. Every time I went in to sign my contract a new message came through closing down slots for prior service, so the last time it happened my recruiter came up and made some calls. After sitting at MEPS all day, I finally got offered a 3-year contract as a 14T and took it, fearing with budget cuts and what not that eventually it might be closed down for good for prior service. I plan on dropping an SF package ASAP and truly cannot wait to get back into the greatest military the world has ever seen!
