Being a Member of The Marine Corps for about a year now I've got a decent amount of experiance as junior enlisted, wich anyone thinking about going through the enlisted rought will have to deal with. I've been getting alot of PMs about it and figured it would be a good idea to start a thread on it. While I've never been deployed I know there are members on here who have so they should be able to help in that aspect.
People in other branches feel free to comment on your experiances as well!
