joining the marines

hey I was wondering if there are any marines in here that could answer some questions. I'm going to the recruiters office today to have a talk but I'll throw up my questions later and some questions I might have about things he said. Do the marine recruiters lie as much as the army ones though?

Oh sorry I glanced over the marine subforum but oh well

Ok I have two questions after talking to the recruiter. One he said officers all do office work and barely have a choice where they are located and enlist has a bunch of choices for deployment. Second after boot I'd go to the infantry training and I know in bootcamp ur dirtbag but in the job training are u marine or still dirtbag?
Thanks

All recruiters bull**** you, unless youre prior service, and know your ****. Even then, theyll try it.

I am now 1/2 way done with my contract and I'm happy so far with everything.

Mine also left out a TON....when I joined it was the start of the war and he was a 75% chance I'd not be deployed .....a whole 4 days after checking in I was doing my work up for Iraq....

If you join the marines you have to realize they dont promise you a rose garden, if you absolutely hate the marines and tell everyone about how much you hate it you are most likely a **** bag

My buddy was looking into doing recon, and just looking at the physical standards; you have to be like ****ing greased lighting to even think about applying for recon. Like I'm not saying don't do it, I'm sure the job kicks ****ing ***.

Oh god, things in life are actually hard! Please, heed his advice and don't challenge yourself whatsoever. God forbid you actually do hard work to achieve things in your life.

Recruiters are going to promise you the world because they want you to sign at the dotted line,

the smartest thing to do is get someone who has already retired from the marines or a lawyer to overlook your contract BEFORE you sign it
