with reference (c).

2.  For the purposes of Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), Article 93a, 
the following definitions apply:
    a.  Training programs for initial career qualification includes being 
assigned to, or enrolled in, any training or school that officers, officer 
candidates, or any enlisted member of the Naval service is required to 
complete upon initial entry into the Naval service through all training 
required for designation of initial military specialty or occupation.
Persons in a holding status pending initial entry training are in a training 
program for purposes of this rule.
    b.  Applicant for military service is any person who has expressed to a 
military recruiter an interest in enlisting or receiving an appointment in

personnel.
    c.  Military recruiter is any person whose primary duty or assignment is 
recruiting.

      The FBI has contacted a Navy veteran, Richard Osthoff, as part of an investigation into embattled Rep. George Santos and a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for Osthoff's sick service dog. Osthoff confirmed the call from the FBI, and sources familiar with the matter confirmed the nature of the investigation -- which adds to the growing list of legal issues and controversies Santos, R-N.Y., is facing.
