If any one has any other options of thoughts on my situation that they know are available to me and could describe them it would be much appreciated

"....switch to the SO rating after 18 months."

RINEHART you are gifted with a bad source of information. You do not "switch" to the SO Rating. The SO Rating is earned by (1) Being accepted into training. (2) Training for approx 14 months. (3) Then pining the Trident pin on if your graduate. Not an easy task for one who falls back upon "I have a sheepskin" as his main show of strength.
