Joshua’s Answer

To become a Marine I think the first thing you need to ensure that you do is finish your high school education. You will need a diploma to join. You will also need to take the ASVAB test which you will have to score a 31 or better (50 or better will give you more options). Once that is done they will go through your medical, drug use, criminal, and personal history to see if there is anything that may disqualify you for service or require you to get a waiver. Once that is done the recruiter will assist you with everything you need and get you a job and a date to go to boot camp.

To be part of the Marine Corps, you will have to be within the age range of 17 and 28 years old and you also have to have your high school diploma. You will also need to be a legal U.S resident. Their are also other requirements as well, such as being meeting their fitness requirements and pass their mental training tests as well. Down below I have posted a link that goes to the Marine Corps requirements on their website.

Hello, I find it amazing that you want to join The United States Marine Corps! The first step is to speak to your local recruiter. From there, he will interview you to ensure you are mentally and physically eligible to enlist. You will do a practice ASVAB score at the recruiting station to determine if you are ready to take the actual ASVAB Test. After receiving your test results, your recruiter will tell you what Military Occupational Services (MOS) are available to you based on your test scores and the MOS needs of the Marine Corps. Once you pick your MOS, the next step is to go to the Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS), where you will conduct various medical checks to ensure you are ready for boot camp. Overall you need to have your high school diploma, a high enough ASVAB score, be at least 17 and be both mentally and physically fit. Also, if you are thinking of joining the military at 17, there is a way to graduate and get your high school diploma early as long as you have all of the required credits!

Jackson’s Answer

First off, you must have a diploma or GED. They will also administer the ASVAB test that can determine what job you can get, it is just basic math, English, and other simple concepts. You must be able to pass a drug test and a medical exam, this just verifies there is nothing wrong with you medically. Don't lie or try to cheat. Next, you must be able to pass the minimum fitness standards for the Corps (They aren't hard, it's a 1.5 mile run, pullups, and situps). You will also get a background check to verify you don't have a criminal background. If you check all of these boxes, you're all good to go.

Also advise you speak with a recruiter in person to get a better understanding and all your concerns addressed
