Most fail mentally. ...
I wouldn't worry about bulking up before you go. It's not like it's going to help you make it through boot camp. If anything focus on endurance. The night before my son's graduation, I was talking...

So you want to be an officer? Every Marine has the opportunity to lead someone. You get out of it what you put in to it. Promotions will come.
Exactly how did your school try to screw you...
I was a 2841 Radio Repairman (electronics tech) and liked it. I still do the same type of work. Going from radio repair, to paging to working on a cell phone network. Do I love it, nah. But I am...
I give you more credit because it was something that you couldn't help. More credit than the guys who were physically able, 100% healthy, and just sat down one day and said "I don't want to do this...
1968 Ford F100 - 4 on the floor, 390, 4x4 - Had it for 5 years waiting until I had time to work on it. Last year, I made the time. 4 months to do a body swap, frame off restoration.
Not true. YOU are the one doing the talking about YOUR choices and YOUR life.
No you won't have to re-take it. Your record will show where you are in the process and the new recruiter will make sure that you do what you have to do next. Most likely a visit to MEPS for your...
Pronounced Em Rap - My brother asked me to look at the wiring system for the one the sheriff's department has. The doors wouldn't open with the power switch. Opening them manually is a real b!t*h....

When I was in as a 2841, in our company we also had Microwave Comm. Techs and Crypto Techs. I can't remember what their MOS #s were.
You can't do any of those being color blind. Too many...

I was a 2841 Ground Radio Repairman. It was 9 months in 29 palms which was the longest comm. school there.
I wonder what is the longest MOS school in the Corps?
Currently reading "The Old Man and the Sea" I liked it as a kid and had an Amazon gift card. It's funny how 25 years later and a different perspective on life brings out different aspects of the...
No I have not. I am not a big fan of Ken Burns documentaries. Probably because on Okinawa we only had 1 channel and he took like 6 months of air time for his Baseball documentary. If I see it, I...
