You being man enough to stand up for your country does not make you a pussy. :) Thank you for wanting to serve and protect us!
You kidding me kid you not even old enough to join anything it shows how you dont know what you're talking about. Now days for people that try to join they get turn down. I respect your support for the marines but next time if you wanna talk shit, make sure you're at least in the military or old enough to join.
tell your father hes a moob(:if you were considering joining,you are obviously not a pussy.
Guts or bravery is doing something you have an extreme fear of and still persevering. Although some one may look brave they could really be just adrenaline junkies and I would consider a man who is extremely afraid but wants to serve for is country and feels strongly about doing so and ends up doing it more brave then some one who just wasn't born with any fear.
Not quite. We may have the same mission, but why else would Marines protect the embassies? Or why our boot camp is at least a month longer than the others? Or that since I completed Marine boot camp, I never have to go to Army or Air Force basic or Navy boot camp. Or why would the Somalis tell their people not to shoot at Marines. They'll shoot back. The list goes on but I think the most important one is that our dress blues are a hell of a lot sexier than any other branch's! Cpl, USMC
-115 respect but, in most cases your boot camp isn't longer. The physical aspect may be, but when you join the army you have to go to AIT after boot camp which is considered an extended part of your training to specialize you in your particular job. It can last anywhere from 2 weeks through 2 years. Marines are massed. That's why they're chosen to protect specific places. Even if, I still respect you for joining.
Don't get me wrong, I completely respect the Army and the Navy and the rest of the branches, but there is a reason they send Marines in first. They get shit done, they do it right the first time. Their training is the longest besides the SEALs, and that's after preliminaries of the Navy. My fiancee is a Marine and although it sucks he was gone for 13 weeks and I saw him for 10 days, and then he left again (motor t), he's happy he gets to serve his country, and I think that's damn respectable. Plus, the dress blues are just hot. ;)
Lets get a few facts straight here. The Marines are the first to go in because the president does not require congressional approval to deploy the Marines. he does require congressional approval to deploy the Army. There are different mission philosphies with the two branches. The Marines are a shock and awe battle strategy. The Army is an occupation strategy. If you absolutely, positively need something destroyed overnight, you send in the Marines. A Marine, regardless of specialty or rate/rank is a rifleman first and foremost. A soldier can be a cook who hasn't touched a rifle since basic training. This does not diminish the role of our Army. Each branch has their stregnths and weaknesses, and we utilize those strengths with optimal effect. It is true, Marine and Navy Boot Camp is longer than Army and Air Force basic, but there is more information to be processed and physical requirements demanded of these respective branches. It has been my privilege to stand beside "My" Marines. I have never known a finer example of discipline, honor and brotherhood. They took care of me as much as I took care of them. For the moron who says we have never won a war. The US has won every declared war. The politics of all our undeclared wars has gotten our collective ass in a sling. Plus, let me clear the air...anyone who has been there, hates war more than the protesters. If OP wants to join, let him join whichever branch has the training he is after. Which one will serve him later in life if he decides against a military career. he is not weak, he is raw. The drill instructors will teach him what he needs to be a well disciplined young man. Good luck to you OP. StreetReaper, FMF HMC OohRah!
Your dad is an asshole! I would totally join and prove him wrong. come back when you get leave and look at him and say "HAHAHAHA who's the pussy now?"
