Topic: Question for the future military members


As most of you know, Iím new to this forum. While ďsnoopingĒ around I noticed a lot of young people who have a desire to join the Armed Forces. Iíve always been interested in knowing why you want to join and why you are choosing the branch you are. However, I wonít ask you anything that I havenít answered yet. Itís only fair.
I joined when I was 19. I previously was enrolled at University of Arkansas. Letís just say I had a little too much fun. I lost my scholarship so I had to do something. My life was literally going down the drain. While walking through the mall one weekend, I found my answer, the United States Air Force.
I must admit I didnít join to ďserveĒ my country. I was greedy. I joined for the money. More specifically, I joined for the GI Bill. As time went on however, I realized there was a lot going on in this world. The world, as I once thought, did not revolve around my life. To make a long story short, I now sever for my COUNTRY!
Five years ago I made a life-altering decision. Turns out, it was the greatest decision of my life. I canít begin to tell all of you young people out there the pride that will soon follow your enlistment/commission.

Tradition, the Title of United States Marine, pride, honor, service to my country and fellow citizens, knowing that it's right.

First of all, I want to join the Marines. I want to join because I want to know that I've done something in my life, I want to help people, for my own pride, military teaches you things that you can't learn anywhere else, and lastly for the chicks 8)

Yep that pretty much sums it up.

Ahem, for the experience. My bro says its loads of fun :P

I advocate the duty of all healthy American men to serve, so lead by example right?

And also for the discipline and like Mosquito said, the military teaches you things you can't learn anywhere else.
