The USMC provided initial training to be a rifleman, then trained me to be an avionics technician. A few years later, I trained as an NCO, able to lead others. The results of this training regimen was very obvious to employers after I separated. Do not discount the value of the training you receive. We stand out, in our decorum, reliability and dedication to duty. Meet one some day, and you will see what I mean.

Pros and Cons
Get to see the world. Great medical/dental benefits.
Military life/ distance from family. Low pay.

They made me the man I am today.

I joined the Corps to try to make it to Vietnam. The Corps gave us aptitude tests and I was sent to Administrative Clerk School Passed that and volunteered for Court Martial Reporter / Legal Clerk School. Passed those and served a short time at Camp Pendleton, then to Okinawa and finally the MCRD in San Diego. While on Okinawa I was able to take vacation to Thailand twice and Seoul, Korea once. I wish a million times I had stayed in the Corps.

The proverbial "3 hots and a cot" apply, but you get so much more.
