    I'm willing to go to weird, off-colour places but Iraq and Afghanistan aren't on the list.

    Also, Peace Corps are meant to improve the image of America, not make it worse.

    I don't think the marines make America's image worse.

    I have friends of the family in the military. I have a friend who enetere the military as an officer after graduating from college. But I will be the first to say, as well as my friend in the military, that some of the grunts in the military are disgusting pieces of shit.

    As far as I am concerened any crime committed by a servicemen against a civlian in whatever country should be severly punished.

    It really angers me how some scums who get in the military behave.

    Pro: Badass; many of them are decent and even noble people
    Con: Some problems, ranging from minor (acting like drunken frat boys) to major (shooting people for kicks; raping schoolgirls). Of course, both of these things are limited.

    I do think the Iraq War hurt the US' image, though. And I consider it just and proper that it has.

    Even if that is true, blaming the marines for the Iraq war is like blaming a steak for being over cooked.

    I was assuming that Urthona meant that being a Marine would not help the US' image in that it would imply taking part in the Iraq War.

    after a webcam interview, i'm currently in the medical/legal clearance stage (see the link below for a really good description of the application time line and procedures). i haven't received my medical kit yet and am worried about finding acceptable doctors here in japan. i live relatively close to misawa (they mention trying military bases, but i don't expect much luck there). i imagine i'll have to travel to tokyo at least once during this process. i doubt that the $100+ bus ride (one way!) is something that gets reimbursed with (part of) your medical expenses. send me an email and i will let you know of any doctors i find or problems i end up having... (if you happen to have information, let me know, too, please!)
