  1. Hello I am curious if I could join NROTC after being prior enlisted with the Air Force and unfortunately received an Article 15 in my first year of service….?

  2. I am 26 years old . Both my parents have died. I have a house left in my name. If I was to join the marines wat would happen to my house? How would I pay bills? What is the process in joining the marines?

    1. (Realize this is an old post, but in case anyone is looking for an answer):

      I was in your place when I was 18-yo and I had to place another family member in charge of my deceased parents’ estate bc—if you go active duty like I did—you will not be able to keep tabs on your house (or vehicle or personal possessions) and/or their bills until you get through bootcamp, SOI/MCT, and your MOS training school(s)—basically, not until you get to your fleet command (aka your permanent duty station). Because—while you’re in training status—”your a$$ belongs to the Corps,” and they want you committed solely to your training, so you can only bring what fits in your seabag until then.

      So you have three options:
      A): Sell the house, but if that’s not an option for you, then consider the other two…
      B) : if you have some adult that you trust **unconditionally,** give him/her legal Power of Attorney to handle your assets until you can later retake possession/control of them yourself [this is also the standard for most Marines’ lengthy overseas deployments, where you won’t be able to play close attention to your stuff], or…
      C): Go Reserve insread of Active and seek out a Reserve unit close to your home—your time away from your house will be substantially less than if you go Active. [If your reserve unit deploys overseas, the reserve command has support procedures/entities in place to help you get your personal affairs in place prior to your deployment]

      I speak from personal real-life experiences as active duty (and also once stationed working w a reserve unit and also w a recruiting unit), hope this helps my fellow orphans out there looking to make the Marines their new family. [Me personally, I’m eternally grateful that I did.] Best of luck!

  3. I want to know why enlisted marines serving coosh recruiting duty feel that they can undermine the integrity of the corp by walking into their office in half a uniform while their brotheren are dying in afkanastan.

  4. I am the General Manager of CubeSmart Storage & Logistics in Fairview, NJ. I am interested in contacting the nearest Marine who can give me information on setting up a Toys for Tots donation center at my facility. I understand that it is only March but we do not plan to fail, we fail to plan.
    Thank you.

  6. Hi,

    I am the mother of someone trying to enlist. My son Randy Forte has been trying to enlist for months at a local office: 911 S Broad St Woodbury, NJ 08096 (856) 845-1240 RSS Atlantic City. My son has put a lot of thought into his decision to enlist in the Marines. However, he is being told, “there are no slots open at this time.”
    “I have never heard of such a thing.” Making the decision to enlist is an honorable one! My husband and I, are extremely proud of our son and his accomplishments. As he is an intelligent, dedicated, trustworthy, respectful, responsible, caring person, and Citizen of the United States of America.
    Why? Would a young man with such character, be told “There are no slots open at this time.” I am nonplussed, at this statement. Can someone please explain this further. Thank you for your time, and consideration in dealing with this matter.

    Sincerely,
    Monique Forte

  7. Hi, my name is Leon I want to join the Marine Corp. I always wanted to be a Marine, however other things in my life prevented me from getting in. I am now older and done some research, I can still get in but would need a wavier. I used to talk to a SGT. GONZALES(he was a firemen in the Marine Corp. If that helps) he was a recruiter who was from California and worked out of the South Edison recruting station, he was helping me get into the Marines, but I lost contact with him, does anyone know where he is now, I was hoping he got promoted to Major or a higher rank so he could have a bigger say in letting me get into the Marines. I mite need to talk to someone with a higher rank like a Major, which I was supposed to do but never got the chance. Can anyone help me. You don’t have to convice me to join the Marines, I always wanted to, I just want the privledge of getting to try the boot camp. I know I will make it threw. Thank You for all that you Marines do. Can someone e-mail me back I would like to set up a meeting if you will give me the chance. Thanks for your consideration.

  8. I would like to speak with the OIC of the Elizabeth Recruiting Station regarding the constant and inconvenient parking habits of the personnel stationed there. At least please email me back.

    1. Try calling the Recruit Sub Station Elizabeth on Jefferson Ave.
      65 Jefferson Avenue
      Elizabeth, NJ 07201
      (908) 355-3009

      Or the NJ headquarters: (732) 866-2946

  9. Does anybody in the recruiters’ list have a friggin’ e-mail addy? I’ve been trying for days to fulfill a promise I made 15 or so years ago to the NCO of RSS Monclair, Mark Lower. Nothing life threatening, but I feel its a responsibility to pay back the Corps for all their help.
