Find your local recruiter and enlist. You will have to take the ASVAB test, fill out some paperwork and maybe some waivers depending on your past history, and take a physical. You should work out regularly before boot camp to make it easier, otherwise it can be rough. You won't be a marine until you finish boot camp.

Contact a Marine recruiter in your town. Requirements for both men and women are a high School diploma, between the ages of 17 and 29. But, you need to be in shape, Marines are very physical, although that is not a requirement, it will make life easier for you.

There are recruiting stations in most major cities. You can also find the information on the web. All military services have a series of tests to qualify the person.

Go to your marine recruiter and tell him. You will have to take the ASVAB test which will determine if you get in or not. Your score must be a certain number. I would suggest you be in good shape before you ship out to boot camp!

The USMC has a website that details the requirements for recruits as well as info on how to locate a recruiter in your area. You must be a high school graduate, although a GED will be considered. There are standards of health (mental and physical) and background. Applicants must be approved by the MEPS physician and pass the ASVAB.

If you're considering joining, the best place to start is to go to your local Marine Recruiting Office. You can find one from their website or a phone book.

Call your closest recruiting station and set up a time to talk with a recruiter. He or she will take it from there and let you know exactly what you need to do.

You first have to make a mental decision. If you wantto become one of this countrys most eite warriors, and guardians of peace, you must commit 100%. If you are 100% committed to this route, you will not succeed. Once you establish this is what you want to do with your life, you must contact a recruiter and sign up.
