    I quite like the marines.

    A best friend of my sisters partner is one. Some of the stuff he gets to do is amazing.

    - Ziplined down from the roof of the stadium in a few Welsh rugby matches.
    - Been on Blue Peter
    - Parachuting across the country
    - Camping is California for 6 months

    He's the first guy who speaks on this video too - http://www.extreme.com/royalmarines/video_article.asp?vID=4

    Oh he doesn't just do media stuff lol, he's also served in Iraq and Afganistan.

    They're all the same to me. I don't have anything against the military, it's just not for me.

    I would definitely have to go with the Air Force. I really like airplanes, and fighter jets just amaze me. They're so fast and loud, if you've ever been to an air show you'd know what I'm saying. I'm actually thinking of becoming a pilot, but I've heard that flight school is expensive, so I don't know yet. And what's the difference between the Army and the Marines? I've always wondered that.

    The Army is bigger but the Marines have better training and do sea, air and land.

    Cool. I don't know much about jets, but isn't that the B-1 Bomber?

    The Marine Core.

    They're the first to go into the battle, the one's who prepare the way for the rest of the military, they have training longer and harder than any other branch of the military. They make every bullet count and with a U.S. Marine, firing one shot to take out the enemy is preferred over firing a rainfall of led.

    The honor of being a Marine is great as well. How many people can say they're a Marine? In the Marine Core, there is no individuality, everyone is a brother/sister and if you take two Marines from completely two different places of training and completely different elements of fighting, they'll be able to work together.

    Heh. If you're going to praise and love them so, you might want to spell their name right.

    Marine Corps. (and "lead")

    The British SAS is pretty kick-ass looking. Too bad I'm not a Brit.

    And as for American military goes, the ones that don't throw puppies off cliffs. That **** was f'ed up.

    I would be happy to associate myself with any member of any branch of the military that has Sniper teams.

    Then go for USMC Force Recon. They're pretty much the "Special forces" of the Marines. They have Scout Snipers, SCUBA teams, or you can jump out of a plane/helicopter.
