In the Army the Fire Control Specialist, MOS 13F, is gotta be one of the best jobs going. This is from an old career Infantryman. I can't imagine the job being all that different in the Corps. Every 13F I ever talked to loved their job.
HIMARS sounds good, too.

My husband was an 0811. His basic description of that job.

Monday:fire the gun
Tuesday: clean the gun
Wednesday:clean the gun
Thursday: clean the gun
Friday: clean the gun

There is no glamor in this job I promise.

I was a 13B in the Army, the equivalent of a Marine 0811 and I can say that I loved my job. There's nothing like putting big bullets down range, granted, you do have to clean the guns afterwards...But everyone has to clean their gear once they use it, Artilleryman, tankers, and infantryman alike. Glamour is for fighter pilots. Not much glamour in any grunt MOS, unless killing the enemy is glamourous.

If you're going to bash a service, you might want to check your facts. And until you have served, you have no right to bash a specific service to begin with. This is your warning.

Shiat! Hand me the popcorn, I canŽt wait to see O3 get ahold of this never was..hahah Priceless!

Mileskiddo, forget about SF mate.
If that is how you are going to act around other branches from your own country how are you gonna handle a FID with a local tribe?
Interservice rivalry is cute and all, but maybe, just maybe you should do some **** first. I mean before you cut down a random branch..

Neither of americas branches are particularly old.. YouŽll learn that when you first come into contact with a country that has history..

Have a good day.
