I have only recently started seriously considering it, but i have felt an obligation to my country my entire life. Im in community college right now majoring in biochem with a pretty decent GPA 3.5. Things are real tough for me though, im finding it difficult paying for a place that i share with my friends, and affording school food etc. It just seems like the military can give me discipline that i can use to succeed the rest of my life and i can help serve my country. I claim to be a patriot, but without military service i feel like a huge hypocrite. What are the major differences between the marines and the army in terms of training, combat, and opportunities? Thanks for your help in advance.
