I think I should get him to do that. My older brother who is a Marine right now is coming up to visit us for a few weeks I think. Maybe I can get him to kick the crap out of me to get me to be motivated to do it on my own. Thanks for the tip about the arm hang. I do it a weired way. I do it with my arms apart like you said. Maybe I could lengthen my time if I do it your way. My dad built a pull up bar for me so I can do that and work that up every day. I want to get to the point to where I can do pull ups. After my older brother gets done visiting with us he has to go to Iraq for 7 months. I wish they would let women do infantry. I told my dad I wanted to do infantry and he told me I was stupid and probably wont even make it through boot. I just laughed. A lot of people think I'm in this to make him happy but I love the military. It's always been a dream of mine. I would like to know that I can kick the crap out of my dad if it ever got to that point though. lol

Cool, so your brother is a Marine and both you and your brother will someday be Marines. That's awesome, the whole family will be Marines. For the flexed arm hang tip, no problem just give my way a shot and see which one is easier. When I do it with my arms apart my time is split in half so hopefully your time will double if you do it my way. Same here, I would like to be able to do pull ups also..Haha I have to get somebody to help lift me up to do the arm hang. I wish your brother lots of luck in Iraq. I know damn well I wouldn't be able to handle infantry, but I do wish they'd let women be tankers...That'd just kick so much ass riding around in that tank and blowin stuff up. Same here, I've always loved the military also and have been wanting to be a Marine since I was little.

You know what? That's ok, I don't know either. Damn, I can't think of anything to say. I'm so confussed about my life right now. I know I want to go into the Military, but I just don't know for sure what branch. I know that a big part of going into the Marines is so my dad has something to tell his friends. My dad doesn't care if I'm happy or not as long as he has something to brag about and make himself look good he's happy. Right now I'm at a cross between Marines and Army. If I go into the Army reserves or something like that I can get a lot of college done and still be able to stay here at home. If I go into the Marines I will be doing it mainly to make my dad happy. I also know that if for some reason I would rather be in the Marines and not Army I can switch over. I think I need to talk to an Army recruiter to find out all the information I need. Sorry, I'm using this forum as a pros and cons list. Sorry.

You should do whatever feels best for you. I'm sure down the road, if you choose to enter one branch say the Army, you can go into the Marines or vice versa. I think your dad should be proud about whatever you do, at least you're not in jail for selling drugs or running a prostitution ring. But do what feels best and natural for you. Talk with an Army recruiter, research the Army.

I could sit here and say, "Join The Corps" and give you a potful of lines about it because I of course have to back my own, but I wont. You need to check into what is goin to make you feel better about you. If you are havin thoughts about somethin else, you will never be happy in The Corps or anywhere else for that. Don't think about anyone else, think about your future and what will work for you and everyone else can work around that or kiss your a--. I hate to make it sound that way, but if you go around and try and make everyone else happy you will grow old and never be happy about your life. You will not be able to look back and find somethin that you are truly proud of. Do your research, choose the best choice for you. Then when it is all said and done you will realize how much better off you are, (in the Marines )
