My name is Rick I am not new to MI but I am a newly graduated UTI student got out of Active Army and went to school for Auto/Diesel and Industrial. I am a diesel guy for sure I applied for several jobs here and think I landed a Ford Diesel Technician job with a Ford dealer in my city so I am happy about that.

Rick,
If you was active army then the conversion will be easy. Also the time put in will count towards your reserve time. My Navy did. Getting a very nice check each month after I turned 60. Free medical also.

NO I'm not a recruiter. A former career councelor

Good man. Think hard about it. If you became officer where would you drill as officer billets are hard to find. Ask.
