Currently I'm deployed to Afghanistan in support of OEF with the Army. When I get back my contract with the Navy expires eight months later. I want to do either the B2G program and go Army infantry, or enlist in the Marine Corps and go the same route. If I go Marines, of course I have to go back to boot camp and go down from E4 to E2. My question is, is Marine Corps infantry worth the demotion? It means I won't be eligible for BAH for another year or so (until I make E4 in the Corps). I guess this is a no-brainer for most people, but I guess as a sailor I have more of a connection with the Marines so I'm somewhat partial. Cliffs: they do the same job, don't they? Is the life of an Army infantryman the same as a Marine Corps infantryman?
