I'd look at it this way: If she really loves you, she'll want you to be happy, and she wouldn't want to hold you back from doing what you want to do. If she leaves you over this, she wasn't the one for you.

I believe he said he wanted to work with the AF Medical Service as an Industrial Hygiene Technician, but after your comment, he's going to go Marines.

If he scares that easily, that might not be a good idea.

I heard the same thing, RnderSafe, and that he wanted to hear some stories about the AF, but he probably only wants to hear gung-ho Leatherneck stories now.

This is true. The Corps is not a place for someone to gohalf hearted. But from earlier statements yousaid you have always wanted to be in The Marines. Do it. She will stay or she will go. If she stays fine if she goes find another, and another and another. Lots of women only one Marine Corps

No 1328, there are no such cards in the Marine Corps. The Army tried stress cards for a bit at a couple of its basic training locations.
