    Marines can kick your ass and the National Guard can't.

    Though currently there are a lot of National Guard personnel overseas, they are supposed to be here in the US defending us from invasion. The Marine Corps on the other had (along with the other branches - Army, Air Force, and Navy) would be the ones that go invade other countries.

    That's way over-simplified, but it's the basic idea. USMC - Tour the world blowin' crap up. National Guard - stay in the US and clean up after hurricanes; if we ever get invaded, repel the invasion.

    The National Guard is sent in when the Marines can't handle it.

    ;)

    Remember... Marine Corps is actually under the Navy. In fact, they rely on the Navy for a large number of services and support. For example, the Marine Corps do not have their own medical personnel.... there are Navy Doctors and medics that are attached to a group of Marines.

    I'm a bit partial to the Navy... IMO, that branch of the military provides the widest range of opportunities in furthering a variety of careers/skills. It is also my opinion that the Marines command the utmost respect and prestige. Historically, their strategic role is one of the most difficult.

    My bias is from having a Naval Captain Retired and Marine Sargent Retired as instructors throughout High School... with very fond and educational memories from both.

    Either case, all military servicemen/women get a big thumbs up from me.

    With that said...

    @OP,

    if you are considering entering into the military, consider going through a 4 year college ROTC program from a well known school for its ROTC program (Texas A&M University for example). You are not required to enter into the service after graduation (unless part of a educational loan/grant) but you will with more opportunities if you do decide to go that route. For one, you'll enter at a higher pay grade than a regular enlisted that came through the recruitment office. Two, you'll be better prepared and adjusted to the military way of life. Three, you'll have a better chance if you decide to go for officer level command.

    If you do not pursue the military after the 4 year ROTC program, you'll still have a valuable and rich experience that many never get to enjoy (on top of the education/degree)

    Also.. If you do 4 years of JROTC in high school, you will have a better chance at being awarded educational support/scholarship to a ROTC program in college.

    Well with the Marines you serve full time till your enlistment is up. In the Guard you got to basic then you serve one week-end a month or as needed, till your enlistment is up.
