I'm a freshman at college and I want to enlist in the Marine Reserves. I want to enlist in Force Recon. I heard I can do split training over 2 summers so it doesn't go into the school year. Is that true? That is what I want to do. I don't mind if a deployment interferes with school because that is part of the job, I just want to get the training done without missing class. I want to go to boot camp as soon as the school year is over, so around May 4th. Do I have to sign up by a certain time to make sure I can go to boot camp then? I was planning on signing up around the middle of February.
