Topic: Early marine basic


I have heard of different branches of the military offering basic training/bootcamp to people at the age of 17, that way they can join the service immediately after highschool without going through basic/bootcamp. I was wondering if there is anyone who knows of anything the Marines might offer for someone not yet out of highschool.

Well if you get your parents signature and agree to lewt you go you can. Im in JROTC in high school and one of my classmates is leaving for basic this summer so when he comes back to school he will be in the Army. <-- Well thats what he says. I think you can go to basic when your 17 with parents permission and then go back finish school and then go on your way in the military. If this is true then I know what I'm doing next summer .

I heard that about the Army and Airforce boot camps, but I have heard nothing about the marines, which is the branch I hope to join. As a matter of fact, my cousin went through Army basic training before his senior year of highscool. That is why I am asking about marine basic.

you should for sure find a few reserve Marines before you commit to that and speak with them in length about the responsibilities and workload of a Reservist.

I don't intend to go reserves. I want to join the corps and be in, full time all the way.
