Good luck! Should be an interesting ride thats for sure. :star:

Id of joined the airforce instead. This way you can be home more often and deployed less.

Experience with this as my husband is AF and deploys MUCH less than my marine friends. Although one marine friend being stationed in japan was a really great experience/adventure for him.

My husbands advice: the movies and the videos showing you them yelling and screaming and all hardcore.. it isn't a joke. He was deployed over 9 months at a time. Iraq more than once, Japan and a few other places. I'm all for serving, but make sure you really understand how often you'll be apart from your family and the effect that will have on you and your children.

thank you very much. i am very much aware of all the hardships. my husband and i don't have any kids yet and not planning on having one soon.

i keep on researching and watching films about it, and my uncle telling me stories about how hard it is to be a marine. i am up for the challenge, i want my family to be proud of me as well.

thanks again for the advices :)

I'd wish you good luck, Marine, but luck is for rabbits, not Marines! :thumbs: Just remember Noblesse Oblige and all that sort of jazz, on second thought:

This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me my rifle is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than the enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. My rifle and I know that what counts in war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, or the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit. My rifle is human, even as I am human, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other.

Before God I swear this creed. My rifle and I are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life.

So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy.
