"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…"

"We don't have Corpsman, Chaplains, or Nuclear Technicians.  For that you'd have to go Navy.  But, we do have a Space Cadre.  Which the Navy doesn't.  So, that's pretty cool.   Now go watch Full Metal…"

"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…"

"The military is, like most say, a good experience while not being a good experience. My time in the military (I was a Navy Corpsman with a Marine Corps Bn) taught me to grow up and be respectful and I did feel that I learned quite a bit more and…"

"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"

William Reed replied to Conor Gallagher's discussion Kilts
"Question is, why? Here's why I ask: I am a bagpiper. Somewhere, WAY down my mongrel heritage, I have Scots blood. All that being said, when I first started playing the pipes, I thought wearing a kilt was cool. I wore one quite often, actually.…"

Tony Wolf replied to Joshua Wolf's discussion Fraternal orders for young men?
"I'm wondering whether any of the traditional, established fraternal groups would be into sponsoring or facilitating a "youth outreach" along the lines of what you're describing.  They have resources and experience that might…"

Will replied to Joshua Wolf's discussion Fraternal orders for young men?
"What leads you to believe there is little for young men in these organizations? I'll tell you what led me to believe that, before I joined one (Knights of Columbus):  ignorance of what they did.  It wasn't entirely my fault.…"
