I am Currently in the Delayed entry Program in my Senior year of Highschool. I was looking into Combat Support(CE) and Security forces(UV) as MOSs.
My recruiter got me a UW security forces PRP contract and basically told me it was Guarding the President and Top Secret Clearance,he told me I could change it at any time right now because I'll be in the DEP for awhile and so I jumped on it and Signed the UW Security forces contract. I've Done a lot of Research on the PRP and the security forces and basically every says PRP is just TS clearance guarding nukes and staying stateside and is not fun and Security forces can just be a glorified Firewatch for 2 years. And i know F.A.S.T cant be guaranteed and i thought it would help in Law enforcement but I hear it doesn't. But I do really like the idea of Combat Support with the Tanks and AAVs and I really like vehicles so I was leaning towards it. I kinda dream of staying in for a long time and getting experienced in the Tank or AAV field.
So Should Go with Combat Support? It sounds like a good field and seeing how I hear bad things about UW Security forces PRP.
Any Input or Help would be Appreciated.

That souinds like to much room to get in trouble. To me The field is where a Marine should be.
That world spounds like spit and polish. Which equals chickenship officers and Staff NCO's.
But that is my opinion. You have to look perfect in that world.
The Yankee White program does secondary security for the POTUS, the secret service handles the security for him. I never served w/ a PRP command I was w/ GDF commands so I didn't have to put up w/ that bull$h!t. I will say that a lot of the guys I was in Iceland w/ agree that it was the best duty station any of us ever had. A bunch of these guys are still in. With that said that company has been shutdown. Any duty station is what you make of it. Keep in mind that you have already signed a contract w/ the Marine Corps. If I were you I wouldn't be expecting too much help from my recruiter while you try to convince him to give you a new contract. There is no shortage of recruits so it's not like they'd have to put themselves out to make you happy; another qualified applicant will walk in soon enough.

HA! I wish I was related to you so I could of told him he's full of $hit!.
Good to see you've done your homework.
Being in FAST didn't help me get into my current career. Being prior service helped me with pre-employment over other knuckleheads by only 5 points. The rest is up to you.
My advice... go Infantry. If Security Forces is all they have, then sign. If not, wait it out until the 2012 Fiscal Year (begins 1 October 2011) for an Infantry contract.
