Do you ever wonder if you're making a difference? Or if you're "different" at all for that matter?

If you have, I will implore you to consider a career as a United States Marine Corps Officer. Marine Corps Officers are tested morally, physically, and mentally. The confidence that emerges from being tested and thereupon victorious fosters future success in and out of uniform in any endeavor you set your mind towards. My team would like to reveal your true potential and offer this experience that has shaped the lives of many successful men and women that have earned the title, Marine Officer.

“I was motivated by the physical and mental challenges presented every day. In addition to being mentally and physically tested among my peers of similar caliber, we had a rigorous academic experience. I am excited to go back next summer and complete my training and earning the privilege of serving my country as a 2nd LT. in the USMC.”
