How can I educate my family about joining the marines?
I'm 24/F considering joining the Marines. I'm well old enough to make my own decisions and will in the end either way. My family cannot be convinced that joining is a positive thing. How can I educate them about all of the good things that come with being a Marine, simply telling them just isn't working. Looking for experienced answers.

The Navy, Army and Marines have recruits drop out at roughly the same rate, between 11 and 14 percent. If you are a swimmer and runner then you are in better shape than 90% of the other recruits. Boot camp is also a mental challenge. The goal is to train you to have discipline, teamwork, and strong success driven attitude. If you are really worried, talk to a Marine recruiter. They have pre-bootcamp workout sessions that will give you a taste of what to expect.
yes you can. Talk to a Navy recruiter but make sure they are OFFICER Recruiting NOT ENLISTED recruiting.
With your education you may qualify for Nuclear Power school and submarines but also would be given your choice. Remember, you NEVER experimented with drugs. Ever. Good Luck.
certainly not. in fact servicemembers can get absentee ballots from their state.
however they are banned from political campaign activities and
must abstain from "any active part" in political campaigns in accordance with the Hatch Act.
