We make fun of recruiters a lot around here. Their job is a thankless job of combing high schools and tricking millions of 18 year olds to enlist. More often than not, however, no one is tricked at all. Recruiters can tell you with a straight face that the Marine Corps will suck and you will hate your life, and you’d still have millions ready to sign the contract to Uncle Sam.
I know because I was one.
My recruiter was always pretty honest with me,
except for the part about being able to change MOS’s after 2 years, which is “technically” true, but never fucking happens. It was my own dumb ass that was looking for a challenge and a change, and chose to hand the reigns of my life over to the US government for the next four years. No coercion necessary. This is the story for most people that join the Marines, who pride themselves on being difficult for the sake of being difficult.
I suppose if you were just looking for a job, you’d join the Air Force.
Don’t forget! The Terminal Lance Bestiary NFT Collection is up on OpenSea for the collecting! We’ve sold a bunch already but there are still some left to be had… Stay tuned for more.
