I was 4yrs active Marine corp. I was gonna go with 2 HS friends. They both pussed out. One couldn't pass the ASVAB and the other admitted to being hospitalized for a OD.
No offense to the people that did but
One thing that really Erks me are the people that all enlisted just cause of 9/11. Shit I enlisted cause I wanted to serve my country out of my heart not for a disaster. I was on the USkearsarge a part of the 24meu when 9/11 was happening. Talk about shitting bricks. We left port in Croatia and stood by at red alert incase they wanted to send us in right away.
We were watching the TVs in disbelief.
