    Yeah, why are you joining the Marine Corps?
    If you're only joining the Marine Corps just for enjoyment, then go to college, you can have all the enjoyment you want. Being a Marine is a 24/7 job; you're always on duty. What you make of your time when the workday is over with, is up to you.
    Being in any branch of the service is 'serious business' and it's not to be taken lightly.

    Safe? In the Marine Corps? In a combat zone? Don't bet the farm, boo boo.

    My unit in Vietnam had one Marine KIA. Guess who? The 0431 Embarkation Specialist. Wrong place, wrong time with a 122mm rocket.
