What I've Always Wanted
Posted By: Mike Souza 05-04-11
I just turned 17, and I would like to join the Marine Corps. I've been asked by a lot of people, "Why do you want to go into the Marines?" I just tell them that I feel like doing something important with my life. I have always wanted to be in the Marine Corps. It's been in the family since (as far as I know) Vietnam. And I want to be trained by the best of the best.
