Advantages of Marines over other services.
I've been looking at the joining the Corps for a while now, but I was wondering what are the advantages of joining the Marines over the army?
I apologize if this has been asked before.
Oh, yes I do live outside the U.S. but I am a U.S citizen.

The real question is why wouldnt you want to be a Marine.

In my opinion, if you have to ask what the advantages of being a Marine are compared to the Army, then maybe the Marines isn't for you. Seems to me that you're looking for opinions to sway your decision on what branch to join.
Either you want to be a Marine, or you don't.
I joined because it was something I knew that I wanted to do since I was a kid.
The PRIDE of being a Marine is priceless!

Cause I was looking for a few good men myself! (I love it when I get to use that)
I chose the Corps because of the uniform, the sharp moves when drilling, we don't train our males & females together in boot camp (hopefully THAT hasn't changed), and, if I decided later to go to another branch, I wouldn't have to go through their boot camp (coming into the Corps from another branch you have to go through boot camp).

"You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth- and the amusing thing about it is that they are."

"The Marines…will never disappoint the most sanguine expectations of their country—never! I have never known one who would not readily advance in battle."
—Capt C. W. Morgan, USN in a letter to Brevet BGen Archibald Henderson, (5th CMC) 1852

You'll learn that the Corps is a religion unto itself where Chesty is held
in the highest regard, wisdom is sought from Archibald Henderson and men
that wear bursting bombs are heralded as demi-gods placed on Earth to be the
baddest men around.

And to the OP its a small world in the Marines. You'll run into Marines that you went through boot camp with. You'll be part of the best group that the Military has to offer. You will train how to properly use your rifle no matter what MOS you have unlike other services. We take care of our own and leave no Marine behind!
