Marines

Marines, also known as a marine corps or naval infantry, are typically an infantry force that specializes in the support of naval and army operations at sea and on land, as well as the execution of their own operations. In the majority of countries, the marine force is an integral part of the navy, but it can also be under the army like the Troupes de marine (French Marines) and Givati Brigade (Israeli Marines), or form an independent service branch like the United States Marine Corps and the Royal Marines (although the United States Marine Corps is under the United States Department of the Navy, and the Royal Marines come under Her Majesty's Naval Service).

The marine corps is a challenge. Something I've thought long and hard about. And have made up my mind in wanting to join. This will be a big tremendous step for me. But with the support of my family and friends I will do just fine. Keeping myself motivated and thinking of a good outcome.
