I'm a journalist thinking of becoming an officer in the Media Ops branch of the TA. However, I come from a naval family and would prefer to join the RMR to carry on that tradition. I know it's possible to specialise in the RMR as a Media Ops officer but how long would it take to accomplish this? Also, one advantage the TA has is that my local unit is a few minutes walk from my house wheras the RMR would take over an hour to drive to. I don't plan on being here forever so if I went for the TA and later tried to join the RMR would I have to start from the bottom again?
