    Well, don't know much about the Army, but I'm assuming Army medics go through Army basic training, which is more rigorous than Navy basic training.

    The other difference is that Navy Corpsmen get to be around badass Marines instead of Army pussies all day:)

    I'm not military, but someone told me the SEAL Corpsman does not really exist anymore. I might be fucking up the details, but while there are still SEAL medics, they go through the Army Special Forces medic (18 Delta) course instead of Navy Corpsman training. Marcus Luttrell did that and mentions it in his book. Other SEALs I talked to said something similar, but I'm not a SEAL so take what I say with a grain of salt.

    Every Marine loves their corpsman. My best friend is a former corpsman and was attached to a Marine battalion in Somalia during that BS.

    Being in the Army is for the average Joe being a corpsman attached to a Marine battalion is for hard chargers. Being that you want to be a weekend warrior though you may as well go in the National Guard and have your college paid. IDK how the Navy Reserves work for college. The GI bill is dog ****.

    Just like with any other group, some that I served with were awesome and some were shitbags. Once we were training in Okinawa, so it was rough terrain of course, and it had been raining for several days. One of our corpsmen went out in the woods and slipped and broke his hand while he was taking a ****. That was hilarious to everyone except him.

    One downside to being a corpsman attached to Marines is that they probably have to try a little harder to prove themselves and be accepted. They haven't been through Marine Corps boot camp, infantry school, etc. They don't have the same physical requirements and soforth. And Marine grunts tend to have a bit of a chip on their shoulder, even towards other Marines who aren't grunts. But, like I said - after hanging with them for a while you should fit right in if you (A) can fix broken people and (B) aren't a *****.

    That may be one advantage to being an Army medic. Maybe the Army vets can say for sure. But if Army medics go through the same basic training as everyone else, maybe they fit in a little easier. Just guessing, though.

    There are no Natty Guard state benefits in California, so he'd get the same GI Bill in the Guard, Army Reserve or Navy Reserve.

    Corpsman school was on the other side of the base from where I did my electronics training. I've been told that any male corpsman is almost guaranteed to be assigned to a marine unit for your first tour, as there are more female than male corpsmen and the women can't be assigned combat posts. But this is just a rumor I've heard, but I'd believe there's some truth to it.

    Bootcamp and your medical training will take place in Great Lakes, IL, which is just north of Chicago, right next to lake Michigan. It's a shithole. Seriously, I hate that fucking place more than anywhere on earth, and I've been to the Persian gulf. I think corpsman "A" school (training for a rating is called an "A" school in the navy) is 6 months long (you can probably find out for sure somewhere on the internet), bootcamp is 2 months of training and anywhere from a 2 weeks to a month extra for processing. Corpsmen can be assigned to anywhere and the quality of your military life will be greatly dependent upon your duty station.
