Yes. The Marine Corps and the US Navy were assigned to the Pacific campaign, while the Army and Navy were assigned to the European campaign.
Mos stands for military operational specialty and MOS 6100 is the code used for Helicopter/Tilt-rotor Mechanic-Trainee.
Depends on what the future holds, and also what you do. Both services deploy frequently... rotations might be more commonplace in the Marines, as it has a much smaller force to draw from. Both forces have units which deploy regularly, and they both have units which don't deploy at all. If your purpose of enlisting is simply looking for "action", you may want to reconsider it.... after three tours as a Combat Medic in the… Read More
Montford Point in North Carolina saw more than 20,000 African Americans trained in segregated facilities between 1942 and 1949. These Black men became the nation's first African American Americans to serve in the United States Marine Corps. The Marine Corps had previously refused to recruit Blacks into the Marines. Roosevelt's Fair Employment Practices Commission in 1941 forced the Corps, despite objections, to begin recruiting African American Marines in 1942. Montford Point continued to train Blacks… Read More
Depends on your MOS. Same with any military branch. If you're a truck driver, you'll work with trucks. If you're a helicopter pilot, you'll work with helicopters. If you're an admin clerk, you'll work with computers, word processing software, and such.
Well- there is a problem. There was no such rifle in the US military as a "tanker" Garand. There were several versions developed for testing, but there were problems and they were not put into production. There have been several companies making what they CALLED a Tanker Garand, but there is no standard design. They vary between 6 and 8 inches shorter than the original M1 Garand.
Sadly, none of the presidents, cabinet secretaries, or members of Congress of the past 68 years ever wrote or phoned me to explain their motivations, so the best I can do for you is to speculate. Maybe it was because from the day of its declaration as a sovereign state, modern Israel became the only representative democracy in the Middle East, with equal rights for all of its citizens ... a form of government and… Read More
No, he did not. But these days, that is not unusual. Back in the era before President Obama was born, there was a military draft and young men had to register for it; there was the Korean War, and then the Vietnam war going on, so large numbers of American young men were called to serve. Many members of congress in the 1960s and 1970s (more than 75% by some estimates) had already served in… Read More
Here is what the military officially has to say about moral standards of enlistment: Persons entering the Armed Forces should be of good moral character. The underlying purpose of moral character enlistment standards is to minimize entrance of persons who are likely to become disciplinary cases or security risks or who disrupt good order, morale, and discipline. Moral standards of acceptability for service are designed to disqualify the following kinds of persons: Individuals under any… Read More
The ramp of the Higgins Boat allowed Marines to land on beaches, and allowed them to avoid disembarking over the sides, making them safer.
Yes, but you may not wear your own. The Marine Corps will issue you glasses (with the correct lenses, of course), and you will use their glasses until you complete basic training. After basic, you may wear your own if you wish to do so.
Maybe. Depends on the state of their addiction, and if the addiction resulted in a criminal record.

Both Navy SEAL snipers and Marine snipers are well trained individuals but my personal opinion is that Navy SEAL snipers are better at doing the job. Only a select few get to be SEALS.
It is not unusual to have a perfect score on the Marine Corps PFT. THe more physically fit you are, the easier it is to get a perfect score.
It's really an apples and oranges comparison. Rangers are a specialized infantry force... SEALs have a wide variety of missions... not all of the SEALs do the kind of counterterrorism missions you see in the movies (insofar as the SEALs go, that's almost exclusively the domain of SEAL Team 6, whereas other Teams will have different missions). A Ranger sniper will be used as a force multiplier, directly supporting an infantry force.. the kind of… Read More
A nice picture frame with a Marine Corp insignia and flag would make an awesome gift for a soon-to-be Marine.
Yes you can, maybe. During your free time you are free to do as you wish and while in the Marines, you will have a lot of free time, this includes the infantry MOS's also. What makes getting your college education difficult is that you don't always work set hours and extra duties can come up at any time.

United States Marines. Most likely named this to show pride for the country and to also show where they are from. It shows nationalism.
The rifle was not as deadly as the machine gun or artillery, but it WAS deadly. By WW 1, rifles included the German 8mm Mauser, the British .303 caliber SMLE, and the American 30-06 caliber 1903 Springfield. All were high powered repeating rifles, accurate to several hundred meters.
The American expeditionary force is known as the United States Armed Forces. The troop were send to Europe in World War 1.

I heard they called him Old Pump-handle, because he shook a lot of hands.
Many had grown up in the relative isolation of reservation life and lacked an adequate command of the English language. They had to take remedial language courses before enlistment.
Legally, to go to 'war' - the President generally asks to Congress to declare a state of war. It is assumed that Congress is a large enough body to determine what constitutes a justifiable war. Obviously, what is considered a justifiable use of military forces varies from person to person; no complete objective standard exists.
The Marine Corps is an adjunct of the Navy. Although the Navy had important roles to play in every theater of the war, the one where they had the main responsibility, and the top command, was the central Pacific. Therefor they used the Marines there. Michael Montagne
My fathe was in the first us army division 16th infantry. He enlisted in 1940 & was honorably discharge May 14th 1945.

The Japanese had expanded their empire southward of their home islands and had taken over many of the South Pacific Island groups.

Some of the more famous battles took place at Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Peleliu, Iwo Jima, Okinawa and… Read More

put a hydrolic jack under the front of the engine and raise it up. This will help you reach the bolts on top of the trany. Be sure to use an extension of at least 18" long but 24 inches is better, then you can reach all of the top bolts on the trany easily with your ratchet and socket wrench
The size of a company differs as its primary mission (Infantry, Armor, MP) as well as its branch of service (US Army or Marine). Some have only 3 platoons others may have 5 or more. A good average would be about 160 enlisted, and about 5 or 6 officers. A company is usually commanded by a captain.
In any circumstance an individual must weigh the time involved versus the cost involved. If the time means getting home to a family, then the cost of faster transportation plan is relevant. If the costs break the family budget, then extra time must be expended. It is an imperfect world and adjustments are required.
Good question! I don't know if this answer will hold up, but my guess is Lieutenant General Carol A. Mutter. USMC (Retired), who was awarded the Defense Distinguished Service Medal, the Defense Superior Service Medal, and the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal among other. The Legion of Merit has been awarded to other Women Marines, but it ranks below the DDSM and the DSSM.

You may wear, and only wear those ribbons notedwithin your personal military record, sometimes called a jacket. If you have been discharged the ribbons you qualifyto wearwill be indicated on your DD-214(Discharge Papers). An individual who wears a ribbonand/or medal not earned, is open for a very, very big problem should that person be called on the carpet. Check twice before dressing your uniform. Like the old Carpenter saying, "Measure twice, cut once."

According to the base history: Commissioned Naval Air Station Beaufort on June 15, 1943, the facility was the home base for advanced training and operation of anti-submarine patrols operating along the United States' Southeastern seaboard during World War II. Deactivated in 1946, the facility was reactivated a Marine Corps Auxiliary Airfield in 1956 and on March 1, 1960, the facility was re-designated Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort.

Simple answer, yes. I'm a Marine myself and I'd say about 80% of Marines take a date/girlfriend/wife. If your a noncommissioned officer or up it's more expected than someone who recently enlisted. If you're a young marine just make sure you straighten up those blues. Look good, first impressions are everything.

No, it is a perfectly normal process for girls and women, mainly girls are worried about it, and they are going through puberty. It's normal, don't worry. It usually means that you're getting ready for your period. It should be white-ish and shouldn't make you itch. I started getting discharge at age 11, and then at age 12 I had my first period. Hope this helps. xx

Textron dissolved the Dorsett division in the mid to late 1970's. They sold off the molds and all equipment.
