Hey you guys,
Im kinda new here and i was thinking about enlisting in the Marine Corps. I still have 3 years to think about it, and i already talked to the recruiter but i was wondering what its like to be in the Corps. To the Marines in the forums, or even advice from anyone else for that matter. Some of my questions are, and im sorry if some of the questions sound stupid but i dont know lol and i hope to fix that. Anyway:
What was the reason you joined the Marine Corps
What has it given you ( morals, integrity,etc etc)
Whats the main thing you need to look out for in Bootcamp, ( just for a heads up)
What is the best part about being in the Marine Corps
What is the worst
Ummm lets see....
Even some of your stories from, i dont know, Bootcamp, etc etc, i would like to hear. I already read most of them from the other forum for Marine Stories on it and was hoping that someonelse might have better or funnier ones. Ive been thinking of going into the military since i was like 5. First i wanted to go into the Navy and be a pilot, then i wanted to go into the Air Force and be a pilot. But finally i heard about the Marine Corps and their acconmplishments, Iwo Jima, Belleua Wood, Wake Island ( not really an accomplishment because they were ovveran but their valor and bravery) Pacific etc etc. Oh and how hard is the ASVAB test. Im good in almost everything but Math, which is mostly Algebra 1. The MOS im looking to do is to be a Small Arms Repairer/Technician. But i will still be happy with just being a Marine grunt or whatever. Im not really worried about the pay because i think as long as i put my trust in God he will help me with that kinda stuff. I will still have to do things not just sit around. But for inspiration and motivation. Anyway... I would really appreciate ANY kind of help for the military. Thank You.
