Wonderful experience everyone should get to have
Posted By: Community Manager 04-01-10
I only served for 5 years, but they were the best 5 years of my life.
I have lifetime friends that I would have never had the opportunity to meet had I not joined, and we have traveled to some great and some not so great places together.
I learned so many lessons during that time that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I now no longer take so many things for granted. I don't complain about as many things. An 8 hour workday now seems like nothing, bad food is not an issue and I can sleep anywhere at any time.
I have developed a wonderful professional network that has helped me in my transition back into the civilian sector. Again this could not have come about if not for the Marine Corps. This is an original story, shared by a Marine and posted by the Community Manager on their behalf.
