Be advised that you may have to hump with the Grunts. And if you do you will be carrying an awkward, heavy Med. bag off your shoulder (unless you can rig up some other, more ergonomic way to carry it).
Plus, whenever the Grunts stop to rest while on those 20 mile Forced Marches there is always someone who needs attention, and it's "Corpsman Up!". So you don't get as much recoup time as they do.
The only advantage that the Corspmen had, that I could see, is that they didn't have to sleep in Marine Barracks when not in te field.
This is not combat experience I am talking about. Just Fleet Marine Force experience.
Hope this helps you decide. (..advise from an old Grunt)
