Is this the pipeline for USMC Recon Officers?

OCS-TBS-MOS school-1st deployment-request recon school instead of a normal B billet-complete BRC and additional schools. This is how it seemed in Nate Fick's One Bullet Away. I know I'm getting ahead of myself a little since I am probably attending PLC Jr.'s next summer. Right now my PFT is at 288. Since I play college football I have to do a lot of heavy lifting, but I stay about 10 pds under my height/weight limit. I do a mixture SEAL FIT, CROSSFIT, And Tacfit commando after every lifting session. I am also doing MMA 3 days a week for a total of 5 hours. Whta else should I do? I swim in the ocean a lot, but I don't really know how the military does it, How do I get myself to the next level with swimming? I know this was pretty lengthy, but I didn't want you people answering to think i was some 14 year old kid playing too many video games; I'm serious about this and have set it as my goal. Thanks for your time and answers PS Here are the to SEALfit and TACFIT I won't tell any of the SI's. All my OSO knows is I want to be a ground contract.... thanks for the answer Capt. Jack.. Youre right about losing weight. Ive gone from 225 to around 198

Don't worry about anything now except excelling in PLC. Look at all the career options with an open mind you will have plenty of time in Basic School to make that decision. DO NOT repeat DO NOT tell the DIs ot sergeant instructors that you want to be anything other than a Marine. One think I would stress (and this... More

I've read the book too (great read) and from different officers I've talked too, its all circumstantial. He just so happened to be in the right places at the right time in order to become Recon O at 1LT. Remember the Captain? The one callsign Encino Man I think? Well as you may remember, he was Intel and just got... More

Great answer from the LtCol. It has been my experience that a couple of things will get you to Force - physical fitness, great reputation as a self-less leader, and timing. Of course some guys will slip through the cracks, but this is time tested. When I screened for Recon, the Bn CO called my 1st Sgt, who supported my... More
