Should I Tell My Dad Or Should I Just Join?

About ten yrs ago i was away at college and had thought that joining the army was a good idea for me. I called my dad and he told me to wait a few yrs and than join. well a few yrs turned into ten. On my 30th b -day i told my father that it was my time and that i was going to join the Army NG. My dad went off the wall. He told me about what he had gone through with the USMC while in Vietnam. He told me if i joined that i would prob be sent overseas and he does not want me to go through the same things that he did. I KNOW in my heart that joining is what i want to do, but i have to have my dads blessing. Should i just join and tell him or try to get him to see where my heart is?

Will The Military Provide A Uniform For A Deceased Marine?

My dad was honorablely discharged from the military after 4 yrs of service in the USMC. He is a Veteran of the Vietnam War. When he passes, we want to have a Military Funeral for him. His ex-wife has burnt all of his Military uniforms and papers. He does get VA benefits. Will the USMC provide a uniform for him to be buried in? Or does he have to active duty? How would I obtain one when that time comes?

Vietnam War ~for Anyone Who Knows Some Fact About How It Was ...

1st platoon charlie comp. 1st divi.my dad was in the vietnam war. he passed away last year and i miss him so much! i am trying to get as much info as possible, what he did there exactly. he was in the “jungle” killed some vietcong, how many i dont know. i didnt get to ask him all the things i wanted to. growing up i didnt talk about it because he was living with p/t/s/d. and daddy doesnt want his little girl to hear those things but now i am starving for this knowledge. i know that he has had best friends die along side of him and i know that the 1st platoon did more “front line killing” basically those titles have special meanings as to what he did there and i want to know desperatly, he was very proud to be a marine even though they were treated horrible when they came home from that war, he lived the saying “USMC TO THE END” if anyone that was there knows those titles or even my dad Dennis G. Klein please give me some info on this thank you from a proud daughter of a marine !!

How Come The Rate Of Passing Usmc Basic Training Is Much Hig ...

I read that today around 95% of people who take USMC basic training end up passing it.
But I also read that prior to the Vietnam War,the chances of passing the USMC was much lower.In fact I read that around prior to the Vietnam War less than half of the people who take USMC basic training end up passing and becoming marines.
Iam very curious,why is the rate of recruits passing the USMC basic training around 95% today while the chances of a person passing USMC training prior to the Vietnam War was less than half?
