Officer or enlisted for future force recon and or marsoc operator
I am 15, a freshman in high school and looking for answers. I know full well what I'm getting myself into and that it won't come easy. I also know that it takes a lot of blood sweat and years to get there but I will. Now down to business. Would I get more time downrange, actually doing missions as an officer or enlisted because I don't care about the "prestige" of being an officer or the increased pay, I want to be next to a group of hard, tough guys that have my back because I have theirs for as long as I can. I am smart, 4.0 gpa and good standardized test scores and also athletic, one of the most all around athletic guys in my grade. What kind of advice can I gather from y'all? Thanks

At 15 your to young to be thinking about joining the Marine Corps.
Finish school, keep getting good grades and then readdress this when you are a senior.

I've been hearing a lot of that, but the only thing I see myself doing is joining the military.

enlisted. but at 15 i seriously doubt you know full well what you'd be getting yourself into. and you dont just join to go marsoc/recon. marsoc you have to be in for a while (multiple reenlistments), and have combat deployments (which you probably wont be able to do). recon is just a haze fest. they do the same thing as grunts but have better support / funding / less nitpicking (regulation ****) and they take pictures. big whoop.

Really! Recon is a haze test? Do the same things as grunts but have better support/funding/less nitpicking and take big pictures.
You don't know what the hell you're talking about. And change your avatar; according to your profile, you are an active E-2, not a Lance Corporal E-3.
Come on over to the SOCNET, and tell us what a Recon Marine is and does. We'll be waiting for your observations.

But I will say, my point was that Recon isn't all that its made out to be to the average 15 year old (who the OP is). Probably should have just said that, but oh well.
