Pros: networking, benefits, title of being a marine
The United States Marine Corps is not for everyone. I was a Bulk fuel specialist, a job i did not pick, nor did i know anything about prior to enlisting. I went to work in the early morning and started the day with morning physical training. Then we would go to our shop where the daily tasks always varied, so there was always something to do. I learned many things from being in this Military Occupational Specialty, everything from maintenance on fuel pumps, used for tactical fuels systems, to Microsoft office, where I would have to make training schedules and schematics. The best thing about this job is the people you get to meet. I have met marines from all over the country. The hardest part of the job, for me anyway is the stress it can put on ones body and mind.
