I've started thinking about what I want to do with my life. I've been wanting to go into military for a few years now after I graduate. But I don't know which one to go into. I know how to fly so the airforce is an option. But I also want to go into feild on the ground. I'm a sgt. major in the young marines and I'm going into the Navy youth. The reason why I'm posting this is so I can work on the phsycial requirments because I have the gene that makes it difficult to lose weight and build stronger muscles. What should I go in to?

You're 13. By Young marines, do you mean Scouts? What country lets 13-year-olds learn to fly?

No the Young Marines is a Military youth organization controlled by the marines. Sgt. Major is the highest rank.

Are you seriously trying to tell me you're being taught to fly at age of 13?

No. By flying, I mean understand the concepts and terms that ATC uses, and also emergency procedures and the like. Also We do get to fly a real plane, but we have a trained pilot with us. He doesn't fly unless it get's out of hand. But I learned most of that on flight simulator. And then when I joined an airforce youth program, I learned it again.

I won't even comment on that... If I was you, I'd go for Marines. It might require a lot more to go through, regarding what you said about musculature and weight, but that's what makes it worthwhile and challenging and makes you stronger. If you really like it, I say go for it, nothing can stop you if you have the will. Never settle for less than what you want. If you end up not liking it, you can always switch to Airforce, although I think marines would be a lot more exciting. I'll be the first one to wish you good luck whatever you choose, military is a great profession.

It makes me lol actually. Such organizations such as scouts etc where set up before World War One to promote propoganda to join the army, brainwashing as they say. Anyway, just join the Marines, you don't need muscels.

Yes you do.

Do you want combat? If so, you probably want something in the 13x series of Army MOSes, thats Artillery. Or maybe 19K, which is Abrams crewman. Just avoid 19D and 11B, lots of heavy lifting is required.

That is, of course, if they even let you join with your disease.

If you want to talk about it, send me a PM, and I'll hook you up on MSN.

Scouts are usually a Christian organization, at least over here, but this "young marines"-thing sounds a lot like the Hitler Jugend...
