If you're going to join the Marine Corps, then forget about serious martial arts training untill you get out.

You can find a lot of places to train, dependent upon the duty station you draw.
You will not be allowed to fight professionally. Your ass will belong to Uncle Sam and the ghost of Chesty Puller.
You will, however, have the chance to work with many people of diverse martial arts backgrounds if you so seek them out.
Worry now about passing basic (should be no problem, they now run in sneakers and hazing was done away with a long time ago). After that time, you can call yourself a Marine.
Next graduate from your MOS training.
Spend the 3-4 years getting in shape, training all you can and get the do or die attitude.
You can train your ass off, but will not be allowed to compete. The government now has an investment in you. Get through that and learn what you can.
Then go out and kick ass in MMA.

Thanks a lot from all you guys, it's good to know some of this stuff beforehand so I don't get all disappointed and sad and crap. And as for all the luck being wished to me, also much appreciated, I look forward to be being a Marine and becoming part of a brotherhood of warriors like yourselves, corny as that sounds.
