 *THIS IS THE SECOND REPLY TO A YOUNG MAN WHO WNATED TO BE A MARINE. HE WENT TO BOOTCAMP BUT WAS DISCHARGED DUE TO A PRE-EXISTING MEDICAL PROBLEM HE HAD NOT DISCLOSED.


I appreciate your honesty. Quite frankly I was expecting more of an
"(***) ripping", pardon the language.

You are right I do have a high respect and appreciation for enlisted men, after my experience at MCRD. I have a friend shipping off for MCRD on the 3rd of August. I am still trying to motivate and help him out by letting him know a little more than what the recruiters tell. I do still have an opportunity to go back to training (as I understand) in 6 months. The only propblem is what I want out of the Marine Corps. My heart is truly set on a carrer in Law Enforcement. I have now been
informed that I can in no way become and MP in the Marine Corps , even by a waiver, because of my eyesight. The two things I want out of the military in general are 1. a law enforcement position, and 2. to be an officer. I have been offered both in the Army, but I am considering options in both. One point the recruiters have brought to my attention is that I am still young. I have time to carefully consider my options.

I have in the past months, since we have been communicating appreciated your honesty and the, as you put "in your face", point-of-view. I look forward to hearing your advice. Thank you for your time and consideration.



 
You have to decide what you want to do. I would ask you why you want to be an officer and what is more important to you, a career in law-enforcement or a life as a Marine. I cannot make that decision for you but I can tell you that you had better weigh the pro and cons very closely because you do not want to regret your decision for the rest of your life. The saddest thing that I see are people who say they were going to join the Marine Corps but didn't, as though that gives some access to the honor it is to be a Marine.

Whatever you do, make a desicion and then go after it with the fury of Hell itself. Let nothing stand in your way and if it comes about that you end up as a janitor at some high school, be the best damn janitor that school has ever seen. I do not think it will come to that but you get the point. My advice in a nutshell:  Identify your dreams and attack it with maximum violence of action.
