Been out of the service for a while... Chances?
So I was Marine CFR and got off active duty in August 2008, and havent been firefighting since. I've been a dispatcher for the past year and went to college for a year before that. Lately I've been wanting to get back overseas doing either firefighting or PSD, but leaning more towards firefighting b/c my wife prefers it.
I believe i'll need to get my first responder back before i can even apply, but all my other DOD should still be active (FF1&2, Airport FF, HazMat Ops1, Fire Instructor 1) as far as i know.
So will having a two year break in my fire service career pretty much kill my chances of getting on with any of the companies in Afghanistan or Iraq? I dont know much about contract firefighting so any advice you can throw my way is greatly appreciated as well!!
