USMCRET, are you familiar with Dave Burke? A Marine pilot who was in Top gun and actually ran Top gun training in f35 squadron. Not only that, he was a foward air controller on the ground in Iraq, a funny admittance of his, he did fire his gun hardly at admittance even before he went to Iraq, he was a pilot...this guy's story is remarkable. The odds of him even getting selected to be a Marine pilot were not with him, but it was his goal and he was one of two out of the officer's in his group to be selected...kinda has some parallels to those going do selection for the LEGION...this podcast I share is great.Yes, in the Marine Corps we have artillery, tanks, fixed and rotary wing air craft (still fly Harriers), engineers, infantry, MARSOC, ....... far to much to list.
A Wanderer is right, first after 13-weeks of Boot Camp ALL MARINES, Male and Female, unless you will actually be infantry, go to Marine Combat Training at the School of Infantry. Every Marine is a Rifleman first and foremost, one shot one kill.
