We actually still are at war. Still inside Afghanistan and a few other places. But op, there's always the Navy, or the branch I love and have been a part of for 6 years now and counting, the AF.

56, whether you are a plane mechanic or a jet pilot, I admire the air force. They got balls to go up there and get shot at from all directions with 0 cover, and suppor our marines down low

actually the Airforce is mostly safe up there than us, chances of them getting hit at that height and speed are very slim. But everyone has their own opinion.

I'm actually a Sensor Operator (UAVs), so I truly do look over the Marines and Army troops while they are on the ground. I have a lot of respect for both, and love a job where I am a huge reason of why the enemy goes down our troops.

Really ? If you can't take a lil comment from your dad like that maybe its not a good idea cuz wen you get there in training it's gunna be 10times worse!!!

#92 OPSEC.....and not all members of the Air Force are in a plane, my job required me to go over the wire for extended periods of time....side note: op go for it, do not let one person discourage you from a goal

Well first off your dad should be supportive of you joining, secondly seriously take it as training from you're dad because thats nothing compared to basic training pussy.

I dont even know my dad first off, so automaticly i dont have his support, and second off it doesnt matter if iv'e been or not i know its no cake walk and if he cant take that from his dad he should probaly think of another line of work.

157 - It actually is a cakewalk compared to being deployed. Once oversees for over 6 months without seeing family and living in that environment, you'll be wishing it was as easy as basic training.

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.

74- The army is just as honorable as the Marines. And OP don't listen to Your douche bag dad. The military is a great thing and if you are motivated then just do it. Your dad may be saying this now but imagine how proud he would be to be proven wrong.

I've considered it and I'm a pansy lmao, well I'm a lazy pushover. But still, as that guy said, considering isn't doing.

Guts to me is doing something not talking about Doing it. My dad was career and i have friends and family in right now. I have the utmost respect for people who do. However, if you ain't backing your shit up - you're just talking.

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.

Reply

99.99% of the time you have to consider something in order to do it, I think it's more of a step in a few to deciding if the armed forces are right for you.

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

Reply

-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.

Reply

Yea my AIT is 10 weeks, longer than the physical boot camp but still its an extension of it like mentioned earlier

Reply

Just to point out - has the u.s military ever successfully won any war (not counting the ww1/ww2 as other countries were fighting alongside them)?

Reply

Fucking asshole, the army is is the MAIN fighting force of the US military. Yet you use your status as a marine as some elitist shit status to bash your brother at arms. Disgraceful. I don't respect douchebags like you, go fuck yorself in your sleep.

Reply

... marines got to marine combat training(if they are not infantry) for a month after bootcamp and then mos school whick can be 2 weeks to 2 years... just saying, but props to all branches

Reply

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. Pl

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

Reply

Dear 169, 1) Your attitude blows whale dick. 2) Marine training might be "longer," but Ranger training is harder. No, seriously. Anyway, I respect the Marines. There's a reason they're part of the spearhead. |the kid|

Do the Captain America thing, you just need to find the military doctor working on the top secret super soldiers.

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?"

Reply

If he wasn't a pussy then he wouldn't be whining about it right now. Blah blah blah...FML......pussy.
