That would be Marine Corps...always spelled with capitals.

Also, there are no such thing as ex-Marines...only Former Marines.:rolleyes:

+1 on the GI Bill and good luck on his job search.

jeez dude relax


OP
Tell your cousin to look into the helmets to hardhats programs at the Union hall ( Electricians IBEW local 441) LMK where he lives and I can see if there is another hall near him. if he is in OC thats the hall to go to.
Get the GI bill and start going to school. If he wants a trade tell him to start figuring out what he wants to do. Unfortunately high paying jobs for 11 marines are not happening in this economy. LMK and Ill get you some info on where to go.
He can try applying to some PDs. Depending on of someone takes him on they will pay for his POST training also.

Depending on his location, I can ask around for some job openings. From 1 Marine 1345 to another.

That's what I have been using. Not a lot of transferable skills for a trigger puller though. If he was a Cpl or better he needs to focus his resume on the management key points. I wouldn't talk about time in OIF or any 'Stan's.


Start school full time with at least one class at a campus and he'll rate BAH for the school location. In OC that's about $2k/mo. tax free. PLus they bill the school direct and also pay up to $1k in books and supplies.

Unemployment/Post 9-11 G.I. Bill... It's hard trying to find a job now-a-days, especially for grunts. Going to school is the probably the best option, like Unit74 said, they're going to pay him B.A.H. to go to school, and pay for his tuition and books, it doesn't get much better than that in this day and age. That's what I'm going to be doing. Good luck to your cousin.

exactly, the gi bill is great money and equals more money once you get that degree.

The CHP, is getting ready to accept apps again for a short period. check out WWW.chp.ca.gov the hiring process takes a little time, but it is a lot quicker then it use to be.

it doesnt hurt to try though, make sure you have everything you submit to them is accurate(not to the best of your knowledge, no **** accurate), they have enough people applying that they want to weed people out for whatever they can.

Yes, but I believe ex military puts your application ahead of non military, so it is worth the effort.

does he want to stay in the states?

theres plenty of HIGH paying jobs for an 0311. just depends if he wants to come back overseas or not...

Law enforcement eligibility lists expire, so two years worth of applicants may mean absolutely ZERO. It all depends on when the list was promulgated. That said, there is a LOT of competition for LE jobs right now.

School is never a bad option, especially on the GI Bill. He's earned it.

I believe Border Patrol is hiring again.

There will be one more opening at LASD in March when I finally RETIRE! :) 32 1/2 years!


And please THANK HIM for his service for me.
