I need some help, please.

I'm thinking of enlisting in the Marines once I get out of High School. I want to join the military, and the Marines seem like the best branch for me.

But I have a few questions.

1. What is boot camp like? How hard is it? How fit should I be beforehand?

2. What is daily life while deployed like?

3. Do you regret joining, or are you glad you did?

Any answers would be great, thanks guys

Also: Thank you for serving our country. For all those still deployed, Semper Fi.

In short, the Marines is the best branch period. If you think you might like it, you'll fail. If you know you want to do it, you might not. Be as fit as possible, boot camp is a ton of work, Iraq is hell.

Thanks for the reply.

I have a good chance of getting a scholarship from Kings Point, and from there I can go into any branch of the military as an officer (yes, I know how much enlisted men hate those guys), and if I do get the scholarship, I want to have a good idea of what branch I want to join.

my cousin left for boot camp yesterday, and i know he is ready. a good point was made saying that if you think you like it, you will fail. i know my cousin will not fail at this as he had wanted to do this for about 2 years now, he decided sometime during his sophomore year in high school. so yeah man you better be prepared for it if you decide to do it haha

that being said, i almost joined the navy before i decided to go to college

Boot camp is the easiest part of your career. You can message me if you want the down and dirty details, because it would take me forever to write it all down.

Your first year and a half are gonna be really hard. Regardless of how well you do, your superior NCOs will take it upon themselves to teach you the discipline they feel you require in order to replace them after they are gone (that is the ultimate goal).

Deployed life depends on your MOS.

You will have your rough times and fun times. Do I regret joining? That answer changes from day to day, month to month, and so on. I am in the best physical condition of my life, but that is also dependent on you and how hard you want to push yourself.

Like I said if you want the dirty details I'll tell you. Just PM me.

dude, go to king's point. you'll love it there. my brother goes there and he gets to travel all over the world. right now he's in the middle east on a ship. and there's a marine ops program there which is extremely valuable if you're interested in the marines. and if not you can get a career on a ship after, which pays a lot generally.

I wouldn't be so sure. Military goons are always the first ones to die in any respectable zombie film.

No way, it's the jittery civilians who lose their nerve that go first.

I know a guy in the military and he said boot camp was hell and the guys there make sure to work you no matter how good your doing, also he said he doesnt regret joining, he says its a great life experience and hes in the best shape, mentally and physically hes ever been in, but he says its hard to see one of your own die but theres good days and bad days

I've never been in the Marines but I can almost assure you, it'll suck pretty bad.

What an educated response.

(I completely agree and im just as ignorant)
