As you can see, I moved this thread into future Marines. Is it worth it, hell yes. I spent 26 years in. Just retired 2 years back. I would not change a thing!!

First off i have wanted to join the marines since i was little. I planned on joinin when i turned 18 but family problems and other thigns prevented me, i am now 21 and have been working towards getting my life squared away so that i could join, now after 3 long years i am finally able to do it. If it is trully your dream nothing anyone says should stop you. And if your the type of person who will let others giving negative input keep you from joining or even second guess it. then it may not be for your, after all the marines are the few, and the proud for a reason, goodluck!
