    I don't know how the Marines work but in the Army if you have college before joining you can either come in at a higher enlisted rank (either E-3 with some college or E-4 with a degree) or you can come in as an Officer if you have a degree.

    Might be something to think about also.
    Hey Moose,

    Gezere is maybe right on this.
    It's still easier to get your first college/university degree as a civilian and then start in the Marine Corp where you can still study additional.
    Your dad will be proud on you if you join the M.C. now or in 3 to 4 years.
    And then you have also given your dad another reason to boost to his buddies, his son is in the M.C. and an officer.
    And in those 3 to 4 years whilest studying just go and screw as much women you want, remember in the M.C. there's no booty, only bootcamp.

    As a child...we use to love to watch the recruits at Parris Island run the obstacle course but our absolute favorite was watching them plummet into the water after failing on the Slide for Life...good times...good time.

    Not true. In my beloved Corps all Marines get a place to sleep, 3 square meals and screwed every day.

    Oohrah!

    when i was a young punk of 18yrs old i applied for a job as a navycook.

    after doing tests they asked me if i was interested in the sergeant level course if i would pass selections (nco's or something in english?)

    big suprise: i failed the psychologic test.
    psychologist: so what kinda function are you looking for in the navy?
    me: well nothing too heavy on my body, i like to push the buttons that launch cruisemissiles.

    i actaully really said that and got kicked out 2 hours later.

    Dang it! M1 beat me to the punch line!

    Actually, depending on where you are stationed, you can have access to some very nice women. Embassy Duty can be a nice B-billet to get (you can only be a watchstander or Detcmdr if you are enlisted...officers are only at the HQ, usually in another part of the continent). But the very things that can make the duty nice, can also make suck. For instance, your detachment will probably be the only Marines in country and you'll be a pretty hot commodity for them. But if things go bad, you will be hours and maybe days from reinforcements. Because of the circles you'll run in, you'll meet some very interesting people and make some great connections. Most of my fellow detachment members were dating politician's daughters, some even dated royalty. It happens.

    Never been in, myself. My hair is just too pretty. But my best friend has been out of the Marines for a year and he does think that going straight out of high school is a bad idea. Not just for troubles in finding job prospects once he got out, but personal problems because he didn't know how to manage a relationship as an adult when he won't be shipping out the next day. Figured I'd pass that along since I was talking to him about it and saw this.

    Join because you want to join, seriously. For the nay sayers a few pages back who wanted to remind you there was a war going on, no kidding. I would say to anyone joining the military, especially the Corps, to do so because you want to serve your country.

    I might also say that it is a job with pay and benefits, which is very stable and hard to get fired from if you're not a moron. Even if you don't retire, vets have a lot of benefits for life as well.

    What, are you 15 and still want to be an astronaut?

    Read the previous posts.
    Most of us are telling Moose that he can join the M.C. but he can join them with a degree in his backpocket and get a chance on a better militairy career.
    The war against terrorisme will still be there in 3 to 4 years.

    not if they carry out my plan.

    this is how you win the war on terror:

    you capture some terrorists and plant small nuclear bombs in their bodies and tracking devices.

    you have em up in guantanomo bay, you poison them, they feel sick and you tell em they have such and so and need surgery asap.
    thats when you plant it in them.
    then you sorta release them or let them escape, and voila, you'll be tracking them.

    eventually they'll find out, but... no problem....the remaining cells will avoid previously captured terrorists out of fear of being tracked.

    very disruptive tactics.

    my plan B is a bit more gorey though.

    What, are you trying to start a fight dickhead?

    You go read the posts, I was there since page number one. This is a general reply without quoting the post in question as to not call anyone out. I'm also a vet and I'm not talking out my ass.

    Shut up.
