Ok, first post on OT. Been a lurker for a long time. I'm 19 years old and I've wanted to be a marine since my step-dad was commissioned back in '96. I just graduated high school this summer and I'm in community college right now. Problem is, I am burnt out from school and I want to take a break from school and come back when I'm ready. I'm making the decision to enlist in the Marines. I've brought up reserves and such a few times to my parents and they say hell no every time. They want me to stick out college and then do what I want later. How can I convince them that this is what I want and get them to support me? I respect their opinions and I'm not just going to walk out on them, so I'd rather get them to support me as best I can. Thanks.
