Need suggestions/opinions info
I started talking to my Dad about him signing my contract and he didn't take it all that well. He got irritated and said no, he won't sign the contract, and since I still want to join the Marines he will not sign any school papers...such as financial aid, application to college, etc.
I'm asking for some opinions on what I should do. If he does not sign the contract..I'm screwed. I can't go to college, correct? So, if thats the case, I figure my best alternative is to join the Corps when I turn 18. Get on active duty as a Combat Engineer and start college as soon as I can. Any other suggestions? Please, feel free to give your opinion/suggestion.
Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They\'re aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They\'ve got really short hair and they always go for the throat. [RAdm. \"Jay\" R. Stark, USN; 10 November 1995]

Sit down with both of your parents and have an adult discussion about your futrure. If this has already been done then I suggest you try again and come up with a better argument that is acceptable to all concerned.

Oh man did my parents get mad when I decided to join the Army. My mom finally relented after I told her if she did not sign the papers, I wouldsign up on my 18th birthday.
If all fails, I would surgest doing a term in the enlisted ranks. You'll get valuable experience for when you become an officer. When you get out, you can always get into an ROTC. Your college will be paid for and you will get your tuition. I am in the process of doing so, but with the Army. Plus you will come out as a cadet with no college loans.
If you have any questions feel free to ask. I have no regreats by delaying going to college and going into the Army.

I've been told many times by people to do the following.
It would be me graduating high school, enlisting for active duty, going infantry, and serving out the contract, 4 years, 3 if I can get a 3 year contract, going reserves, and going to college, then applying for OCS.
What are some flaws to this? If I did this, when I went into the USMCR, would I get any tuituion assistance for college, from the Corps. I know if you serve for four years, you get money for college when you get out. Would that apply for me when I went into the USMCR? Also, would it be easy for me to go from active to reserves? Do I just put in the paper work and wait for it to go through? Or when its time to re-enlist do I simply check USMCR, as simple as that?
What are your opnions on this?
