First of all, Happy New Year to all active members out here. My daughter will soon earn her Master of Science in Medicine and Surgery. She's planning to take the path of military service and as the first one in the family to do so and as her father, I need to know how to guide her. I'm supportive of all her endeavors and I want to make it right.
If she is talking to an officer recruiter for the Navy, Air Force or Army, and talking about a direct commission, then she is working with the right people. Coast Guard and Marine Corps do not have their own medical provider staff officers.
This forum is mostly for those seeking to start down a path toward an officer commission via a Service Academy, college ROTC, or if they have their college degree, OCS/OTS. Your daughter is at a different place in her educational career.
If you’re going to do some serious browsing on here, I recommend the Acronym List Sticky under Community Information forum.
