I'd say join the Marines cus they are the best, but I'm bias.

You should talk to recruiters from both branches, and then after you learned a bit about both the Army and Marines fallow your gut, do what you feel you'll be happy with. Or you will not be making a carreer out of the military if you know what I'm saying.

I am bias too, so I would say go Marines. Also, from the comments in the original post here it sounds like you want the maines more anyway. I gotta say infantry is infantry no matter how you look at it. Go to the recruiters, tell them this is what you are doin. "I am lookin to make a choice and this is what I have narrowed it to, Army vs. Marines and I want to see what you both have to offer." They will not look down on you but they will both put on their best show for you. Then you can make a choice from that.

I am very biased too and would say the Marines. You can get a signing bonus in the Corps too, just depends on where and what is required at the time of enlistment or reenlistment.

I am sorry if I am being biased against the Army, but the Marines have been trying harder to get me to join, and their is more pride in saying that I am a Marine as opposed to I am in the Army, not be mean to any Army people, I respect anybody from the Military, they are putting their lives on the line so I can live a safe life right here in the middle of the US of A.

Ok your looking for a little go get'm push to the marines hey its all good . Both are infantry, have good and bad points,have guns,and are on the front line. its all a personal decision yeah the video for the marines show them cussing you out and making you feel sub-human . But let me tell yeah being degraded in a nice normal tone of voice without cussing and the you dun screwed up expression gave me the warm fuzzy so look at the benefits and the quality of life and what you want to do and make the choice hooah.

Better be an Option 40 attached to that 11X or you aren't getting anything but infantry. You aren't guaranteed to become a Ranger, all you are promised is a chance to pass RIP, btw.

Well, we might as well let this thread die, I started filling out Enlistment papers for the Army today, well technically yesterday since it is 4 AM, anyways, I plan on going infantry, probably Rangers, I will have to talk to some counselor guy who will basically listen to me for 15 mintues and know what I should be doing, I am not exactly sure how that works out. So, anyways, by this time next year I should be off to basic.

What it really comes down to is:

1. What do you want to do - what appeals most to you?

2. How much do you like the sea? Let's face it - not many US Army units go on floats for 6 to 8 months or do regular rotations as amphibious troops.
It is always fun to be attached to a carrier and have your bunks located near the catapult, you get used to the "KaThunk" and "sprish" sounds after awhile and actually can get some sleep. Good training for Atry baraages...
