ALCON,

I am trying to get all the help I can get and have been talking to as many people as I can about the career. I am a serious candidate that trains every day of the week and I'm in the pool or ocean at least 5 times per week.

Someone once told me that you cannot get to the right destination if you do not have the correct map. I am thinking that a mentor could help me stay motivated and help me find the "correct map" for my end goal.

Anyone out there willing to lend a hand?

It looks like you are on a good path. It’s easy to get into the reconnaissance community; all you need to do is keep going and never quit. No one selects you, you select yourself through your heart, drive, and determination. I wish you the best. I spent most of my career in the Blue Diamond but I’m currently out of the AO for the near future unfortunately. Let me know if I can help. Are you going the Marine Corps route or SARC option?
