I'm 17, and all my life I've wanted to be a Marine. I dont know what about it is the Corps that fascinates me, either the dress blues, the inspiring recruitment posters, or the hardcore people they churn out.. Or it could be all of the above !
So, I'm planning on enlisting right out of highschool. And I only have one year of school left..
What I would like to do in the Corps:
Being an outdoor loving, long range shooting hobbyist MY GOAL is to ONE DAY graduate a Marine Corps Scout Sniper.
(who could've guessed this?)
Which first, I would have to pick a job in the 03 infantry MOS..
The reason I'm posting this! - is to hear alllll the insight of those who are serving, veterans, or gurus of the Marine and/or military. Now, I know the best person to ask for insight would be a recruiter, but I also know that they are also "salesmens" about getting a youngster like me all hyped up into signing that contract. So this is why I'm asking insight from all of you LRH members!
What can/will I expect out of the Corps?
What was YOUR experience of the Corps?
Is wanting to be in the Infantry field a wise "goal"?
- And anything else you would like to include.
Hoping to read all of your posts!
