my mom is a very depressed woman. For the passed year or so ive been the thinking about joining the Marines. Recently, ive been pretty set-in-stone about it. I believe its my niche. When I told my mom about this she seemed.very sad and told me not to make her any more sad then she is. If there are any marines or former marines out there with experience, how did you go about it? I just turned 17 and am a junior in high school so I still have some time. I want to join so that I can make something of myself, so that I can accomplish something very few can do. I can look back on my life and say that I did something with pride. Also, my family has a distinguished military history. both of my grandfathers faught in wwII, one was awarded a distinguished flying cross(right below the medal of honor). I also have two cousins, one who is now in the reserve and another who went to Iraq and is now a recruiter, I want to keep the tradition going
The USMC is over 222 years of romping, stomping, hell, death and destruction. The finest fighting machine the world has ever seen. We were born in a bomb crater, our Mother was an M-16, and our Father was the Devil. Each moment that I live is an additional threat upon your life. I am a rough looking, roving soldier of the sea. I am cocky, self-centered, overbearing, and do not know the meaning of fear, for I am fear itself. I am a green amphibious monster, made of blood and guts, who arose from the sea, feasting on anti-Americans throughout the globe. Whenever it may arise, and when my time comes, I will die a glorious death on the battlefield, giving my life for Mom, the Corps, and the American Flag. We stole the eagle from the Air Force, the anchor from the Navy, and the rope from the Army. On the 7th day, while God rested, we over-ran his perimeter and stole the globe, and we’ve been running the show ever since. We live like soldiers and talk like sailors and slap the Hell out of both of them. Soldier by day, lover by night, drunkard by choice,
MARINE BY GOD!!! OORAH!!!
