Its a tough decision believe me i know. Job market sucks right now and for the foreseeable future. If you talk to most guys they say they wish they would've stayed in. I'm glad I got out but miss alot of it too.

Try reenlisting in a different mos or better yet have them send you to school to become an officer. Your USMC correct? Do they still have the MECEP program? If you qualify they pay you e5 pay to go to civilian college and then you become an officer. I was gonna do that but got out instead.

I would've retired at 37 with full benefits. I couldve had another career and been double dipping. Instead I'm 39 and have 20 more years to go and not much medical when I get there. Good luck in whatever you decide.
