  23. SF says:

    For all those asking questions about how to contact a local recruiting office; I am sure this information is widely available on the internet. Also, you could just drive around your area and chances are there is an office close by. For those who truly want to enlist in the Marine Corps, I would recommend contacting a recruiter directly vs. posting your own contact information on this website.

    • Chris says:

      Kaleb im sorry to tell you this but your chances are very slim to none…the Marine Corps will not accept anyone without at least a GED and even with a GED its very hard to go still.

  27. I’m a soldier of the Nigeria Army. With all my mind, I wish to become a Marine in the US Marine corp. I am begging the Us government to make a way for non American to able get enlisted into the US marine.

  28. Joshua Thomas says:

    Im looking for a recruiter around Birmingham Alabama to answer some questions for me about switching over to the marine corp from the army

  29. Daniel says:

    I want to join the marines but do not know if I am eligible to do so. I was involved in a car accident while I was intoxicated. I was charged and convicted of 4th degree aggravated assault and a DWI. This was the first crime I committed, I served less then six months in a county jail. Its because of this that I’m unaware if I’m eligible to join the U.S.M.Cs. If I’m not eligible I am eligible for the foreign legion. I’ve had a couple of friends (former marines) tell me that I should be accepted but, they are not 100% on that. I’ve also read from a couple places that I may still be eligible because it was a DWI related incident. Anyone know for sure? I want to be a soldier in my country, but since we are so up tight these days and like to persecute people for things, I may fight under another flag if necessary.

    • Brooke says:

      You want to serve your country, yet you’re willing leave it to become a citizen of another country just to get the glory of saying you fought for something…interesting.

      • Daniel says:

        I want to fight for my country above all but, it’s in my blood to be a soldier. So I’ll be a soldier even if my country rejects me. I want to preserve and protect life. I don’t want glory or commendations, I need to be a soldier. So before you question any service I may do, don’t think there is a hidden agenda within it.

        • Chris says:

          Well Daniel the whole thing is when you go to MEPS the recruiter will ask you about any former convictions. I personally dont really know how a DWI would be but im guessing it might have to go to a waiver..but contact your closest Marine Recruiting Station to get the whole thing. Good luck wherever it is you end up

  33. eric mungia says:

    Do we need to take the practice asvab or go ahead and take the asvab

    • Chris says:

      You need to take the practice ASVAB first. Trust me its easy as long as you score a 32 you will be able to go on to take the ASVAB..just remember though with the ASVAB your line scores are what matters most and will determine what jobs you qualify for.
