College and the USMC Well, I am nearing the end of my collegiate journey, and I have become increasingly worried about my post-uni life. Since I was in my first year, I was planning on joining a police department upon graduation. Recently, I have decided that, for various reasons, a big one being the divorce rate, I do not want to be a cop. I have turned my attention to the armed forces, and the Marines specifically. I have briefly reviewed their website, and have noticed the Officer Training they offer. 10 weeks in the summer and you become a Second Liutenant upon completion, an officer. How is this program? I am not worried about how taxing it is, I fully expect it to be so. How is life in the Marines? I do not want my life to be all about my work. Family is very important to me and I want them to be my main priority. Is the divorce rate in the Armed forces as horribly wretched as it is in police departments across the country? Basically what I am saying, is that I do NOT want my job affecting the happiness and relationship I have with my family as being a cop would do. Sarge, you got any advice for me? I am currently a 20 year old male nearing the end of his 3rd year at Florida State University. I am nearing completion of a bachelors degree in Criminology. Thanks for any advice any of you armed forces people can offer.
