Son want to be Marine medic - Navy
My son will be a senior in high school this fall. His grades are high, in the honor society, and plays sports. We have his college tuition paid for when we enrolled him in Texas Tomorrow Fund when he was a child. My questions is what would be the best way for him to obtain is goal to be in the medical field in the Marines and our goal for him to get a degree? My son has talked about the Marines since he was 7 yrs old. Thanks for your input.

Reseeach is needed,does he want to be a Marine or a Navy Hospital Corpsman? Becoming a Corpsman does not automaticly place him with the Marines,there are many who are not with the Marines the first 2-4 years of their enlistment.You can go through the threads at http://www.corpsman.com/forum/forum.php in the FMTB section to get an idea.

Thanks for the quick reply. My son wants to be a Marine. I understand that the Marines do not have their own medics, the Navy places corpmen with the Marines. Is this correct? Thanks again.
