🇺🇸 New blog post! 🇺🇸
"This Will Make You Rethink Marine Commissioning Routes" ▶️ Before I graduated OCS, I tried every one of the commissioning routes, save enlisted to officer. I applied to the Naval Academy twice and spent a year and a half as a Marine Option Midshipman in NROTC. Only after that did I apply for the Platoon Leaders Course and attend the 10 week PLC combined.

Don’t let someone tell you that good officers only come from one of the commissioning routes. One of the determinants of appropriate commissioning routes is age. I.e. there is no point in going to college at the Naval Academy or through NROTC if you have a degree.

Today, 74 years ago, the Battle of Tarawa began.
.
A Japanese commander said it would take 1,000,000 men 100 years to conquer the island – 18,000 Marines did it in 76 hours.
.
Ooh-rah, Marines!
