At the same time however, i will be the proudest human being to walk the face of the earth once i have that title. Marine... that is so appealing.
First off, 98, I read somewhere that "man's greatest fear is fear of the unknown". Explorers had to be petrified to leave sight of shore, but you can't find distant islands without doing so.
Secondly-Be the proudest human being because of your actions in uniform...not a title. For everyone in uniform serving this great nation should be proud of their actions and service, not because of a title like Marine or Ranger or Major or Sergeant or Private. Wear your uniform proudly and never disgrace it.
Thirdly-I wish you well in your decision making process and hope for the best for you!
Just some thoughts from and old retired MSG.

It is a big step into the unknown
so was your first day at any new school
or the day you go for your an interview for a job, & the boss says that you are hired
this only a bit different, you don't go home at night, people yelling at you for your own good, although you don't realize it until weeks or months later

you go places that you couldn't afford to visit, you have great days & days that you wish you were any place else

Good Luck on your journey, where ever it takes you

and I was one of those people...I was a Drill Sergeant from 2002 to 2004 (reserve) at Ft. Benning. Just remember this about Drill Sergeants...they put their pants on the same way Privates do, one leg at a time. Don't let them intimidate you (but they will for a while). And what GT said, they do it for your own good, is spot on!! Alex, this post started in April...wondering if you have made your decision yet??
