Where did you serve?

Recommended Posts

I have often wondered if any of the guys I served with might wander into QSSN. Hell we all chewed, maybe Avi, Mac, Doug, Tony, Franco, or so many others are here and I don't even know it.

Hey Question for all you vets

 

Is there a separate place to become a Marine Officer, or is it also through USMA?

You do not have to go to a USMA to become an officer in any branch. You can even go in enlisted and later become an officer. Talk to your recruiter and I think you'll find a wide variety of paths.

 

But if this is what you really want to do and you're still in High School, then shoot for the moon and become the creme de la creme through one of the academy's. And of course, if it's the Marines you want, that will be the U.S. Naval Academy.

 

And Kid, if you can make it into the USNA to become a Marine Officer, I will support your young dumb ass in every possible way that I can... because I think that is really cool beans!

Kid, I agree with 3BD fully. If you can get into any of the academies, that by itself is quite an achievement. We kid around about what academy and what branch of service is best but the honor of being a member of the U.S. Military is outstanding regardless of branch.

No, you don't need perfect vision. I don't know what the cut off is for how bad of vision you can have for the Army and some jobs require better vision then others. I didn't need glasses 24 years ago when I got out but I had quite a few friends who did. The Army issued them the ugliest glasses you ever saw. We called them "birth control glasses". If you only need slight vision correction you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

I don't think it's that restrictive anymore unless you want to scream an F-18. Research the recuiting requirements of all your interests on the web and then go and see your counselor as well as your local recruiter. That's what I would do. Talking to a recuiter is not as scary as you might imagine.

I can tell you that I had 20/400 vision when I joined the USMC. It just has to be correctable to 20/20 there isn't a specefic cut off. For Vision that I know of.

You would only need to have 20/20 uncorrected vision ( perfect vision) if you want to be a pilot. Other than that you are fine if you have corrected vision.
