Just to piss lindsayjibber off I am not going to PM you the answer to this.
My dad went to Kings Point Merchant Marine Academy in upstate New York and then served 3 years in the Navy and 2 tours in Vietnam before the Marines were sent there. After he got out, he went to work on merchant ships around the world for the next 35 years. Retired at the age of 60 after becoming a Captain of the LNG Capricorn.
The ship he was the captain on^^^^^^
Also, there are many more jobs in the military outside of the standard infantry rifleman. My friend in the Air Force is a mechanic, and will most likely be working as an aerospace mechanic at SeaTac or something once he gets out. Another friend is in Marine intelligence and he could go FBI, CIA, or possibly be a regular detective.
The standard infantry grunts also get MANY other skill outside of being able to carry a bunch of gear and shoot a gun. Many members of the infantry go back to college after serving on the GI Bill and work as men in the standard industry jobs as foreman and other things.
I'm a butt virgin. My ass is sooooo prude
GODDAMNIT fucking Baptista! How would he like it if I joined the Brazilian Marines and only spoke English?!

Fucking dress blues commercial man. That got so many fucking dudes. Now look at us: Trombley hasn't killed anybody, I'm half a world away from good Thai pussy, and Colbert is out here rolling around fuckbutt Iraq hunting for dragons in a MOPP suit that smells like four days of piss and ball sweat.
