I'm currently in the United States Marine Corps. I went to bootcamp June 8th of 1998 and EAS'd in September of 2003 after returning from Iraq, during which I was stop lossed. I left active duty for the civilian world and returned to the Corps in 2005, where I've been since.

I was a structural and hydraulic mechanic on helicopters from 98 to 03, and now currently have a desk job which sucks and I cannot wait to get back to turning wrenches.

What is EAS'd? Pardon my military ignorance. I come from a long line of soldiers... but it kind of ended with me.

Ha ha, no worries. EAS = End of Active Service which can be 4or 5 years on initial enlistment. Not to be confused with ECC which is End of Current Contract which is the 8 year obligation you sign when enlisting.

So when I say I EAS'd, it means I left active duty even though I had time left on my obligation.
