    Now, for your wife's sake, let's hope that he won't settle for anything less than being a grunt like many of us here were.

    All I ever wanted to be growing up was to be a Marine. I knew that I wanted to be a grunt and by God, that’s what I became. My son also wants the 03 field. The odd thing is, each and every recruiter at the Marine Corps Recruiting substation are dissuading him from this choice. I don’t get it, I’m left scratching my head. I know from experience that being a grunt is the backbone of the Corps. I'm perplexed by their behavior.

    Back in March 67, we graduated with 96 recruits, about 85 of us became 03's (needs of the Corps) which is what I wanted as well. As you remember, we are the backbone of the Corps. Of course, Trump is wanting to start a space cadet program, maybe they've already got a MOS for that.
