If you served in the military on or before 10/1/90, click the link and you can get your VMET, Verification of Military Experience and Training. You'll need to log in with your SSN, DOB, last name and current status (retired, reserve, separated). This will show most if not all of the military schools you attended, how many college credits they are worth and what the civilian counterpart to your military job might be.

Thanks Jarhead, even though mine was a bit jacked up (didn't show secondary MOS- pmi- and missed some squid schools I attended). I followed the link to the SMART system and it showed what VMET didn't. Go figure. Damn I miss the Corps. Semper Fi

Damn nice find JH. After all those MCI`s, It looks like I was professer, too bad they are worth 1 hour credit, translated into civy standards. I guess Tactics of the Marine Corps Rifle Squad just doesnt translate well, go figure.

wow, this thing works even if you were on reserve status after 10/1/90! I'm printing my "forest" now! [:)] hmm, looking thru this, there seems to be some stuff that's not on the list!

Yeah, my VMET is missing an Air Force school that I went to in 1994, but it shows up when I follow the link to SMART that TeufelHunden mentioned.

I don't know, Ed. I would have to guess that your records are chiseled into stone tablets somewhere in a cave near St. Louis... [;)] They probably still have the armory card for that first bone club or flint-tipped spear you were issued at boot camp.

That was pretty interesting. They did get some things wrong, though. They had my rank messed up ( I was a Corporal, not a Spec4). I love this quote from my job description: "Many of the duties required for this MOS involve highly classified materials, equipment, and activities; therefore, not all the competencies and knowledge associated with the MOS were evaluated. " Makes it sound real exciting, when it was really very, very boring.

C&L and Jarhead probably nailed it on the earlier records. If they're around they are probably in boxes sitting on those giant shelves in the giant warehouses (where they stowed the Arc from Indiana Jones and all the alien spacecraft debris). I'm impressed they went all the way back to 1990. The farther back you go, the more dated the computer system you'd have to interface with, or you'd have to be pulling from hardcopies (SLOW!). That is, if they aren't still using the same system they were back in 1990 (which would explain the magic date...) I think I'll stop speculating now. Viper Out

Is there any chance the link could be tacked up in the Hall of Heros forum? It would be real handy for any new vets in the future.
