USMC, here I come.

To my fellow e90posters:

I've made an incredible life decision, and I'm joining the United States Marine Corps.

Thanks to the members of the Armed Forces who responded to my other thread. Your advice is valuable to me. I made the decision to join the Marines over the Army, but my idea is still the same.

I'll be in the Marines as a computer diagnostician and repairmen, while I get college learning and accumulate my GI bill, so I can get a healthy degree in the real world and do something worthwhile.

Thanks for your comraderie this last year or so, E90posters. I won't forget any of you that i've met.

GooD luck on your the Boot Camp. I was an ex usa navy i was in the service for 7 and half years. i got out under medical discharge... Thank god for that. we dont have that much intensive boot camp as Marine or ARmy. I also work with them on special force team before.. their work out are intensive. Please Keep yourself from getting kill by friendly firer. I saw it in the first iraq war. It is no joke. Blood is everywhere. body of innocent one drop like fly. it is sad but the truth.. BTW.. in my opinion it is not worth dying for THis PResident of United state for his gain in Black MOney. Word to the wise my friend e90post.. JOin the AIr force. they are more into computer n electronic than army or marine. You can fix Air plane instead fixing tank.

man... good luck. stay safe, and the least i can ask is for you not to get killed. considering your playing a non direct combat role, either way, you never know. btw, i suggest the air force, they are far more into all the gadgets and whatnot.

dont forget to log on E90Post from time to time, keep us posted.

ohhh. and if you can, take some pics of the apache longbow for me

Is there such thing as a non-combatant Marine? I thought that was like a trouble-free BMW. Rumored to exist, but no one has ever seen one.

Every Marine is a rifleman first. Good luck Matt. Ooh Rah!

Your ability to construct coherent sentences precludes your admission to the Marine Corps. j/k Just be prepared to substitute barks and grunts in place of English.

Thanks for your support guys. =) I appreciate it.

As for those asking me to look into the Air Force (or is it Chair Force? heh) I thought about it, but it's not quite right for me. I've been destined to be a Marine since birth. lol. I just convinced the Marines to make it more right for me.

As for the computer stuff, it's just icing, not my goal. I'm doing computer sciences in the Marines for two reasons; Firstly, it's a real world usable talent, so I could use it for a job after service. Secondly, it's non-direct combat. It's not my reason for joining.

I'm joining for the benefits, the glory, and the education, but mostly the education.

When I get out of the service I will have no debt, enough money to buy a house, real world skills, and a degree. It's what I need.
