"Fernando,   The Corps has too broad a variety of job fields to even list.  Google Marine Corps MOS and you should find a listing of all the jobs and descriptions of the requirements.  That going to be a big part of what "can you…"

"I want to join the USMC as soon as I can, I've talked to a couple Marines and they always ask me: what do you want to do?   Truth is, I have no idea what I want to do if I do join.   So to the Jarheads out there: What kinds of jobs…"

Shane replied to Vytautas's discussion What Do We Learn From History?

"Thanks for all the replies, you helped me make up my mind. I ended up buying a peacoat instead, which is a lot more useful for me right now. As for the blazer, I decided that when I do get a jacket, I'll go for a grey or maybe navy one."

What is it that we learn from people of bygone places and times? There are some…See More
