You SHOULD have joined the Army... But seriously. The military is a good set up. You get all your necessities paid for for you.

XD good for you ...
well your friends should understand what you want to do, and the same for your family ... this is something you wanted and you did, you joined marines ... if your friends against joining you the marines they must have a good reason , and if they don't they don't have the right to be against it ^_^ .... =^_^=

The Marines huh? I'm joining myself, but I didn't pass the test, and failed it at least 3 times, *sighs* So I got a 6 month delay.
My advice? is do what you think should do, I mean, I'm doing it for a reason, nothing else to do where I live, and I'm trying to make something out of myself, you know? make myself proud of joining the military, so what if someone hates the government, I don't mind to people talking about it, but I don't bother with politics. So since you got in, you should at least do some good in it.
i am a marine and i think it is fun but not everyone in my unit thinks so
i cry inside for life anew i die each time im torn in two i live for earth and die for none along comes a god who will always bring peace and tranquility
Well no matter what anyone say, i will be your call in the very end, if you stay or not.... So if you don't know if you really want, you could ask those who don't want you to go, why that is.... And maybe ask someone who has been in the marine before for a long time, and ask what it was like, and if they had friends that didn't want them to go....
Coming from someone who was already in the military, (ex-Navy Submariner) and of course from what everyone has said here, you need to do what is best for you. If your friends don't like the government thats fine because no one does. Becoming a Marine doesn't make you "The man" if anything, if you think about it, its the ultimate way to stick it too "the man". What better way to prove you are an individual who is not controled by anyone by making this decision. And when you come back and your friends see that you are not a robot maybe they will change their tune and if they don't, screw em, you will have made plenty more with plenty of stories to tell while you are in.
