His LES's and other documents indicate that he has over 20 years of service. I'm wondering if he simply doesn't have enough reserve points. I'm looking for someone who understands all this stuff.

I am well-above the female physical fitness tests, but after doing some research, I learned that antidepressant usage will disqualify me. Are there any exceptions to this, or am I just wasting my, and the interviewer's time?JA: Has anything been officially filed?Customer: I was given a prescriptionJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: I have not. My law school has had representatives give infosessions about the Marine JAGs.

I was selected for an interview on the 4th.\JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
