            that's two different branches.
            If I were hiring some1 it would be from the USN b/c they're all firefighters.
            Don't join the military just to get a firefighting job, b/c once you get out you're still on active reserve for two years. alot can happen in two years.

                Ah, i love how even the most innocent thread can become a branch bashing one.

                I think the OP just put AF due to the fact that they typically get the most certs that can fill that req. Pretty sure that if you have the required certs you are in.

                As for EX-Marine? I always thought it was a Former-Marine. But that's just me.

                And is it just me, or does Fireguy come off as a troll? Don't feed the bastard.

                  not anymore sir... the air force runs the academy at goodfellow, and trains the firefighters for all the services.

                  the navy also has their own firefighting trainers for the shipboard firefighting training they recieve in boot camp. the Marines dont have anything to do with it anymore.

                    Louis F. Garland DOD (Department of Defense) Fire Academy, located at Goodfellow Air Force Base in San Angelo Texas. The Air Force has ownership but it is a joint service ran academy. There are Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine instructors as well as civilian instructors (who are all pretty much retired military firefighters). The apprentice course as well as many advanced courses are taught there by all branches of the service. This is NOT where the Navy is taught shipboard firefighting. Just thought I'd clarify that a little bit.

                      It's not active reserve, it's IRR (Inactive Ready Reserves) and you'll only be called back during critical MOS shortages or of course a full mobilization. Your comment on only hiring USN Firefighters made me chuckle, thanks for the laugh.
