    thsi really is something you have to decide on for yourself. If you really want infantry then I would say wait for that. If you don't want to wait and you think you could be happy with a different MOS then you have to make that decision. I know jobs are getting harder and harder to come by and I have read on here of more and more people not egtting their top 1, 2 or 3 choices and having to settle for something else. But, you don't want to settle for something if you are going to be miserable. Only you can decide what is the best thing for you. When I initially enlisted many moons ago I was told I would have to wait a long time - possibly up to a year - for the MOS I wanted. So, I went to MEPS and passed everything and was once again told my MOS was not available and I would be waiting a long time for it to become available. I opted to wait and was pretty bummed waiting to get picked up to go home. As luck would have it, right before I was to leave a slot opened up and I swore in that day and left almost exactly a month later. Now I was very lucky but you never know that could happen to you.

      Do not settle for something you don't even remotely want to do!!! Wait untill a spot opens up to sign. There could be an open slot in a couple weeks or months depending. You might also consider 12B(combat engineer), 13F(forward observer), or 19D(cavalry scout) as other options but if your heart is dead set on infantry then do yourself a favor and wait for that job.

          Ask your recruiter if you can just "QNE" until an 11B slot becomes available. Out here in RI, we are "QNE"ing people at MEPS and bringing them home to wait until the jobs become available.

          QNE= Qualified Not Enlisted"

          It's just a waiting list. The Coast Cuard has been doing that for years. Now we are as well. At least we, in Rhode Island, are doing it. Check with your recruiter.

            My advice is not to sign any contract until you have the MOS that you want to do. That's one of the advantages of the Guard, you will know going in exactly what you will be training for.
