What are the chances I get this job in the military?
I'm looking into being a Combat Documentation/Production Specialist http://www.goarmy.com/JobDetail.do?id=8 . I've read about people having a recruiter sign the contract guaranteeing them a specific job or they'll be able to walk away from serving.
