Correct, under 18's cannot be sent to combat. You would be sent to a unit and receive training of some sort

Honistly guys dont all snap at me. I have got friends who have come back from tours and are now peece keeping. My friend from 924 is guarding a bace in scotland. So yes the Marines arnt all about war. Yes they have a masive role in the war in afganistan. But i bet 90% of people here want to just go to war and shoot a gun etc. I want to join the Marines for piece keeping and learning a trade not for the violence..

you are righ mate, but at the end of the day, it is an elite fighting force and during recruit training you are trainied to kill. And it is most likely that as soon as you pass out of training you will go straight into Afghan. So if you are not joining up for the violence then you are going to have a shock.
