Re: Considering Serving
My brother served in Iraq 9 separate times (dating back to the first gulf war), Marine scout sniper, as his brother I am going to say I am extremely proud of him, he climbed the ladder from the bottom and has become very successful, he was injured in his last stay in Iraq, lost his leg, and is so enthused with what he does, that he is now training young scout snipers on the homefront. The marines are about commitment. To the comment that marines only care about screwing around. When it is go time, they are the reason the rest of the military can walk through safely. Dont knock the marines because they are the ones keeping an eye on their brothers in arms. And if you have served in a warzone, thank a marine for being alive.
