First off, I would read some of the other posts here. There is already a lot of good info to be found. Secondly, why do you want infantry and special operation stuff? Only the absolute best of the best make it to that level. Ask yourself if you would rather sit on a couch and watch TV/play a video game or would you rather be out running sweating your *****s off in the heat of the day? If you are the type that doesn't like to excerise EVERYDAY and are not in that good of shape, think twice about the special forces from any branch. Don't buy into the hollywood crap about the military. It has it's good and bad with everything. I'm sure if you ask your friends and family, you'll find a Marine or two to talk and ask questions of first hand. If not, then do a little reading and then ask away here. We'll be sure to help you but your questions leave a LOT of room and might help us to have you fine tune your questions a little.

15 years old huh?

you have 2 years to think it over son. Who knows depending on what part of the country you live in you may be married and 2 kids into your life before the notion of joining the Corps comes up again.
By then don't think about joining the Corps.
Allthough the armed services likes to brag about all the new programs they have for married service men and women it's still a single mans game.
