Don't count on having a life. You'll be going anywhere, at any time, with zero advance warning. The Marines are a TINY force when compared to the other major branches. They're for one purpose: Go NOW. Anywhere in the world in 24 hours to open a big 'ol can of whoopass.

8 year US Navy Veteran as a Hull Maintenance Technician (HT2). Currently Individual Ready Reserve (IRR or inactive reserves) as a Gunners Mate (GM2). Planning on returning to the Ready Reserve as a SEABEE Equipment Operator (EO3 or EO2)before years end. I've lost 28 lbs and I've got to lose about 75 more.
