If one was to join the infantry which route would be your choice and why? There seems to be overlap in duties in the Marines and Army. I know that Rangers are special operations light infantry, but it seems like Marines seem to fill some of the same responsibilities.

The Marines are still amphibious. Marine Expeditionary Units (MEW) are on ships, like Landing Support Craft (LST). And the Navy will still need its Marine buddies to fight on the shore for them. Marine Infantry can train for many situations. Force Recon is "Equal" to Army Rangers in a way. It all depends on what you are looking for in life I guess. I have been in the Marines and currently in the Army. Just do some reserch and meditate and see what happens.

I was in the infantry in the Marines and in the Ranger's. I would recomend the Army. I love the Marine Corps but the bottom line is their are better oportunities and missions in the Army.

"Hell Marines don't even get stationed on ships anymore. They're an entirely land based force now." I was just getting told the other day about how Marines are going to be stationed on Navy AND Coast Guard ships here in the near future.

No disrespect and I know this is an old topic but amadeus is painfully misinformed.

The Cannibal -  better uniforms in the corps


The fact that this is the best argument for the Corps should make your decision easier.
