@Bio: I feel the same way. I rather take out some bad guys than go tell other people to take out those bad guys. I was thinking about joining the Marines. I have a couple of years to chew it over but it is a very possible career choice of mine.
You're an Engineer in the Army right?
Yep. 12W, Carpentry and Masonry Specialist. I wanted to be a 12B (Combat Engineer), and there was a slot open for one, but then that slot got closed
My best friend is going to Marine Bootcamp in a month. He's Assault Infantry, he gets to carry a rocket launcher
Before you decide to go with any one branch, really consider the benefits, pros, and cons of each one. I was going to be a Marine but I decided that first I would go Army, and get Engineer training. I might still go into the Marines after my Army contract is up. I wanted to be a Marine since I was like 5 years old, but I went Army for the Engineers and so far I don't regret it.
