  1. Hello, I am a freshman and I would like to be part of the USMC. I have some questions but I don’t know how long it would take to ask all of them. I live in Washington and I don’t know which recruiting station to go to. Thank you.

    I would really love to become a marine. I believe that a marine ALWAYS gets the job done no matter the cost, so I have been trying to have that mind set. and once a gain thank you.

  2. im an 8th grader from nevada and hope to become USMC. and whanted to know were the closest recruting office is and thank all of are miliarys troops

  3. I’m thirteen years old and am looking into going into the Marine Corps. I would like to know what it takes and where the nearest recruiting office is from my hometown here in Montana. I have a second cousin in the Marine Corps, but he’s stationed across the country, so I have a hard time asking him for the information I’m looking for. I would really appreciate it.

    *Note* My family doesn’t want me to be in the USMC, and are trying to push me towards the Air Force, which is not something I want to do.

    1. I am 16 and my family wants me to do the same thing. Stay committed because when you get out of bootcamp your family will be proud.

  4. I have an 18 year old needing to talk to a recruiter. Can you direct me to the nearest recruiter office. Our zip code is 35903. Thank you in advance for your help.

  5. I currently live on an Air Force base in Japan and was wondering how I could go about requesting more information. The marine website only allowes stateside residences.


  6. To Whom It May Concern,
    I am currently of age and I am hoping to find a Marine recruiter near Okinawa, Japan. The description states that this division does conduct recruitment in Hawaii but it only has links for state side Recruit Stations. I was wondering how I could find a recruiter. I am a U.S. Citizen.

  7. Who it may concern,

    I am currently 15 years old, I am interested in the possibility of becoming an officer in the USMC, my mom and dad are not that thrilled with my decision, if you could have an OSO or just a Marine Recruiter get in contact with my family and I, so that the expectations of what it takes to be an officer in the USMC. Also so that the process that happens may be explained to me and my parents. That would be highly appreciated

  8. Dear Sir or Madam,
    I am currently writing a novel in which my hero is an 18-year-old man who enlists in the Marines. I have researched USMC websites to understand the process, but I would really like first-hand knowledge of the experience. Would love to sit down with a Marine and talk. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,
