View Full Version : Just a couple questions.

02-12-08, 09:08 PM
Hey Marines. I've been surfing these boards for a while, and just now decided to make an account.

At the moment I'm working as hard as I can to get into the best shape possible. I'm not TOO weak, I wrestled for two years and I am an avid paintballer, plus we PTed a lot in MCJROTC last semester. I can do 50~ push-ups, 80~ sit-ups (2 minutes), and 6~ pull-ups (Before MCJROTC I could barely do one). The last mile I ran was at about 9 minutes if I remember correctly.

Anyhow, I've got a couple questions. I'm a Sophomore in my second semester of High School, and I was wondering if I would be able to attend the local Poolee Functions or not. I just switched to Night School, or I'd ask the Marine Recruiter at my school. I'll be 17 in July.

Forgot to add that I haven't enlisted, which brought the question about.

You might actually want to go to the poolee boards.. just because I think they have a lot of insight there (poolees and Marines).

Yeah I tried posting it in the Recruiting boards, it said I wasn't authorized though.

oh LOL sorry. Maybe try calling your recruiter's office during normal hours or.. on Saturdays? They don't really sleep.

Another idea is the chat room. Right now is too late I think b/c it's a school night, but you should be able to get some questions answered. Did you try the "Ask A Marine" board?

Yes'm, I think I'll take your advice and call the recruiting office. Should've done that before posting here anyways.

Thanks. ( :
