Thread: Bullshido in the marines?

Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it

1) Unless you are investigating bullshit in MCMAP or the Corps, this should not be here. If you just wanted to discuss joining the Armed Forces, you should start an appropriate thread in YMAS, not in MABS.
2) The fact that none of you figured out that the a gentleman referenced in the OP was discussing his training in Ashida Kim's org is of great disappointment to me.

I also agree that there is no such thing as a max ASVAB score to be a grunt (my score was really high too---now I have a civil engineering degree). One of my best friends when I was in the Infantry had a Master's degree in Philosophy and insisted on being enlisted. He had the highest GT score in the unit.
Recruiters certainly lie...its thier job. This shouldn't come as any suprise to anybody. They just have to lie more to some than others to get the sell. I had a pretty good idea what I was getting into, so they didn't bullshit me too much.
Whoever recommended gettin gan MOS that requires language skills made a good call. However, if the OP does go into the USMC, the Corps will pick the language. Russian or Mandarin will always be good choices just from a business perspective though.

The best way to get free college from the military is an ROTC scholarship. You won't have to do anything until you graduate, and even then as a butter bar you'll make more than you ever did enlisted. Then you can get out and make the big bucks.
