Marines Definitely Not For Everyone!
Take all above and acknowledge these factual requirements. However, all for not if you are not committed and determined to serve your country. The honest eligibility for the Marines would require a toughness for survival and dedication of purpose. Be prepared not only to be mentally tough, but physically tough as well. The Marines is not for the weak! You will be tested for battle. The weak will not likely survive beyond one enlistment.

I’m Russian Special Forces officer. Can I join US Marine Corps?
can you still join if you have a history of marijuana use?
i believe the marine corps won’t typically allow recruits w/ drug possession/use on their record, but you won’t know for sure unless you talk to a recruiter.
