Son you came on here like you were the cock of the block ( old Texas saying...lol) But when things didn't go your way, as in you didn't hear what you wanted to hear, you caved. I think you would have gained some measure of respect by toning down the bravura and simply be yourself. Why didn't you come back and post? Son, you're not any military material let alone a Marine. Go find something to do you're good at........besides whining

I have been told to go do my homework, this is good advice and I intend to take it. Thank you all and I am sorry if I have misstepped, it was in ignorance, not malice.

I'll tell ya how we learned about the Marines...We joined. Regardless of what anyone else may have said about the Marine Corps, or what we may have read, we joined. We served our country with honor and integrity, and we moved on with our lives. We do not come together in these forums as survivors of some horrendous tragedy. We come together here as brothers and sisters who dug deep and earned the title of Marine. A title which stays with you to the streets of heaven. For all of eternity. We come here to celebrate each other and the esprit de corps that we all still have. Becoming a Marine isn't something you can be told about. You have to seize the opportunity if it presents itself to you, and kick its azz. Become one of us. Otherwise, you will never understand.

You want us to tell you why you should not join the Marine Corps.
This is a new kind of bizarre thread, but we're getting used to them.
How about this. That if you want us to scare you away from the Corps, all we have to do is tell you that you are not Marine Corps material.
The whole premise of your post is strange, instead of just asking folks, hey ,what are the downsides of joining up, you put the burden on US to come up with reasons that will scare you away? I don't think so.
Next time you have a question, word it in a sensible way, you probably won't get your balls busted quite as much.
You don't want us to tell you why you should join, you want us to tell you why you should NOT join.
That is just plain bizarre, but I'm no longer surprised by any threads on this forum.

I have put my foot quite a ways into my mouth with this thread, so all perceptions of false bravado or trolling aside, I am very interested in joining. The question it seems I should have asked was put very well by Dave a few posts back, so here it goes: Besides the obvious hardships accociated with military service, what are the detractors from joining that would not be considered by individuals who have little or no experience with the military? I am only trying to make an informed decision.
