A college degree does not mean one should strive to become an officer, it only means you qualify to be one academically.
You should only go the officer route if you think this is what you want to...
If you left the AF to join the USMC in the MOS's of either infantry/security forces or MP, why then are you looking at the flight crew MOS?
You need to stick to your plan and don't take any job...
You bring up a good point.
What I think happens many times today is that future Marines have this misconception that boot camp is gonna be a certain way and when it's not, they say it's easy.
I often hear people say boot camp is mostly mental. I don't agree with that at all. I was sore from day one and I was tired from day one. Every minute of those three months is accounted for and if...

Unless you have the specific contract that guarantees you a try out, then no one can guarantee you any try out.
You would need to get answers from recent graduates of infantry school because...
Choose a major that interest you and that you can use once you get out. Remember that the chances of you not making it into the 'air' side of the USMC is much greater then making it.
And you would...
Oh I am thrilled that you decided to get involved "bro". San Bernardino County is a county which encompasses 29 Palms. For you or anyone else to suggest that 29 Palms is located in LA county is just...
Yea, I too would be very careful in what I reply.
Give me a break please. 29 Palms is NOT the largest military base in the USA. I believe that honor goes to Fort Hood, TX.
29 Palms is the...
I would send you a PM but you never answered my last one. And I agree that all this is very silly. But if you keep asking me, then I will keep answering you.
Why would I say I was at camp (x) at...
Did you notice the "Duty" after MCB/MCAS Hawaii? I was stationed there and while there we went to --Camps Fuji. and Hansen. You know as well as I do that 3rd MAR REG gets stationed at Camp Hansen...
I never said I was at any camp while at 29 Palms. I was there for school.
And I never said I was stationed at Camp Fuji. We went there as a company and a half from Okinawa while deployed there....
If you thought I was a fraud, then why would you ask me these silly questions such as where I went to school? Anyone can get this info if they wanted it.
Where do you think I attended comm...
If you can't accept the fact that the USMC changed the name or role of SOI, then that is all on you.
Like I said, when you went through this school years ago it was all 03xx's. Things have changed...
We already went through this. Read my profile.
If I was a radio operator then obviously I went through MCT located at the SOI/WEST.
ALL MARINES go through SOI.
Perhaps Google should be your friend. Whats wrong, are you upset that you are once again wrong. I do not rely on Wiki, that was a second source.
Did you even read the first link? Are you saying...
From the official USMC website.
"At the School of Infantry, Marines who receive the infantry military specialty are trained at Infantry Training Battalion (ITB), and all non-infantry Marine's are...
Did I stutter or did your ears flap? My words here>>"It was better I heal in boot camp then to be dropped during SOI. They said being dropped while at SOI would of given me a very bad impression...
I fractured my leg the final week of boot camp. It started breaking during the first month and finally broke in the end. I was dropped to medical platoon to heal. I was there nearly three months. I...
I think you just answered you own question. Both places do the exact same training and no one place is more difficult then the other.
PI, because it is more famous is where most people want to go...
You need to take care of your issues first, and then go see a recruiter. If the courts were to allow you to enlist in exchange for your crimes being reduced or tossed aside, then this would only hurt...
That is interesting that you say you learned the entire MOS of field radio operator in one week. Perhaps you should tell the CMC that the school length of two months is not necessary because you...

I don't know about your unit, but fitness was taken care of on its own. I never had to worry about getting out of shape due to PT. And many times in the fleet we were not in control of our lives....
Time to start using simple common sense.
If you have ANY doubt that any substance may make you test positive, then don't take it.
What good does any one of us do you if we tell you it's not...
And where exactly did I encourage him to eat Taco Bell or Popeyes?
And do you mean they don't serve chicken in boot camp?
Unless you are addicted to any food or beverage, then you can keep doing as you please.
There is no need to change anything with three weeks to go, or one week, etc etc, unless you are addicted...
