"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…"

"What jobs are you thinking about?    I know a lot of people that go to the military after the work force, (especially in the post 9/11 fervor) so its definitely something that can be accomplished.  Just think through all the…"

"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…"

"Ask the wife first.  Although there is much to be said about serving your country your family should come first.  I say this as a military retiree and I have served in 3 of the 4 services.  I did not get married until I was in my 40s…"

"I'm "living the dream" as a Plebe at USNA.  If your GPA is as good as you say it is, and you've taken challenging classes, as well as have some participation in sports and/or other examples of leadership, you would probably…"

"You may want to have a slip of paper with lines on it that you can put under your letter paper. Then you can write clear straight lines across an unlined page. It is a very stunning effect. -D"

"Shane (addendum):  I've learned how to tailor my shirts over the last year (not week). Take the important shirts into a tailor. My wife or I tailor my other shirts. Quick run through the sewing machine does wonders for hiding flaws."
