Is he enlisted or officer? When I was enlisted and being dicked around by my branch I talked to a Navy officer recruiter. I basically got offered a career field I was 0% interested in so I stayed where I was and commissioned there.
He's enlisted and it would depend on MOS availablity, he's looking for a change since he's working on getting the Airframe and Powerplant certs. He hates the current leadership and has been dealing with it for 3 years; we hopefully PCS next year so I'm hoping a change in leadership will help.
So far he's wanting to switch since the recruiter said he could go reserve to go to school getting BAH, E5 pay, and they'd pay for us to go back home then switch back to active.
