Quickest Path to become a Network Operations and Systems Officer(0650)?
This is the job in the Marine Corps. http://usmilitary.about.com/od/officerj3/a/0650.htm It's a warrant officer position. What's the quickest path to gain that job title? I need the following jobs first to even qualify for it: 0651, 0656, 0659, 0689, 4067. Now here's my problem, i'm not a US citizen, only a perm resident(GG holder). If i sign an 8 years contract 4/4 would it be possible to go Infantry for the first few years, in the process of serving as an infantry become naturalized by the military, switch to one of the MOS above after a few years of serving as an infantry(0651, 0656, 0659, 0689, 4067), probably extending my contract in the process, and after a few more years apply for warrant officer for MOS 0650? I already have an Associates in Computer Science. Is this a viable plan? Also if you haven't noticed 0651, 0656, 0659, 0689, 4067 all require citizenship so that's why i mentioned that i'm not a citizen yet. One more thing, applying for warrant officer requires a BA or an AA, i have read mixed answers on this, some saying you need 70 credits, others saying an AA, others saying a minimum of a BA.

First, to perform a lateral move into the 06xx community, you must first be released from your prior MOS and then accepted into the new MOS. A degree or college is not required to obtain the MOS, it doesn't... More

You need your citizenship because these are high security jobs and then be able to pass the security screenings.
