Topic: Marines getting the Shaft?

Marines are part of the department of the Navy, the US Naval Academy is the Marine academy too.....

There is NOT a academy in TX for the Marines.

The marine's do get the shaft for their own ROTC branch though. It's only NROTC with marine option.

High School Academy yes, US Military Academy no......it is essentially the same as St John's Military Academy near me. They cost about the same $20K per year, no government support.

The marines are an essential part of the navy, and they do not need an academy since most do not go to annapolis on the idea of becoming marines.

Most officers in the Marines come from NROTC w/marine option or OCS

Marines are part of the Navy. They are with the department of the Navy, they don't even have their own medics, the Navy takes care of that in the form of the Corpsman.
