Do you think it's better to join the USMC before or after college? Is it true that you won't be able to make it past a certain pay grade if you only have a high school education?

Going to college getting your degree then joining the Marines as a officer is the best choice. To answer your second question no its not true.

So my boyfriend is currently at Parris Island to earn his title as a marine. I was wondering if you could give me a brief description of the phases they undergo at Boot Camp :) Btw; congrats on the promotion :)

There are 3 phases.

1st phase they break your soul.

2nd phase they begin to rebuild you.

3rd phase they instill confidence knowledge and meaning into your life.

Thank you!

do all marines get to know the date when they get promoted?? i thought it was a surprise

Yes all Marines can find out when they are getting promoted. Pvt-LCpl is based on time in grade time. Cpl-Sgt is based off a score.


So I just found out that I will be promoted to Sergeant October 1st!
