That is AMAZING! Active Duty Marine Corps required a waiver because you were prior service USMCR! What a nutroll.
I'm trying to rejoin the Marine Corps reserves...left active duty in 1995 as an 0231. Spent my first six years as an 03. Then one day when I was carrying an M60 up a hill I had a vision...

Wow - what a blast from the past... I too, was an 03 grunt (0341) and had a vision as well - in Lebanon in '76. I figured that I'd better get some better training than lobbing mortar rounds or I'd end up as a rent-a-cop or worse. I went counterintelligence (0211) and had a much better time!
I wanted to get back in (I did work ups for chasing Abu Nidal back when our "computer" was a grease pencil & a map), but the recruiter just laughed and gave me some bumper stickers....
