LTC Jason Mackay EXCELLENT! You might get a former Enlisted to write something similar. Also, in today's military the number of Enlisted with degrees and some with advanced degrees is growing. I also think it is important to state that not all people want to go from Enlisted to Officer.

Many enlisted technicians today are seeking degrees and continuing to get advanced technical skills so they can file senior middle managers told where leadership is lacking, especially in the civilian community. Your thoughts!

CPO Nate S. - not arguing that all enlisted with degrees pursue a commission. This was to answer the myriad of posts by Army Cadets seeking branch selection advice. Not everyone is cut out for or wants to pursue a commission, and that is OK.

CPO Nate S. - if you have problems tagging a certain person, you can copy their link, then delete down to just the 5-6 digit number in the middle of the link and that exact tag should pop up.

LTC Jason Mackay - Sir, Roger that. I agree, not all enlisted with a degree should or need to pursue a commission. Savvy technicians are also critical to unit success. Many of your same points about preferences are just as critical to enlisted personnel as they plan careers and in the end what they - really want. No worries, no worries!

This is awesome guidance. I liked the "Red Herring" topics -- so true! The "Cool Guy Schools" has so much sway over people, it's eye opening.

Sir, would it be alright if I turn this into a word .doc and distribute it through our ROTC Battalion here at Wheaton College?
