Another American planning on joining the Legion if my waivers with the Marine Corps do not go through. There's not much here in the States for me to want to stick around. I found the Legion and have had the bug since. I hope to be leaving late 2018 early 2019 if my situation with the USMC goes South thanks for having me.

Appreciate the quick responses everyone
I train as hard as my schedule allows
Averaging around 25 miles of running a week
I hear the Legion and Usmc is known for lots of running so I focus my energy there the most No Pain No Gain :)

Colton5566,

Welcome to the forum and good luck. Pay attention to those whose names are in Green.

Welcome to the forum, and try to at least double that running length and don't forget to change speed regularly because when you run with other people you have to constantly adjust to their tempo.

Good to know I will increase my mileage every week or 2 until I'm up to 50 and I do speed interval training as well to increase speed I can run 3 miles at a 6:30 pace hopefully I'll have that below 6 before I head out to basic or selection
And I will pay attention to the greens thanks again

Either way you go, you will run. In the Marine Corps no runs are shorter than three mile, three mile runs are the PFT Runs, all others 4, 5, 6....miles

Good luck either way and as a Marine I mean it, Corps or Legion, both are damned fine militaries.

Update.
I have started working out with all the poolees and will be starting my waiver process in the next few months I just need to finish highschool first still don't know how it will go but either way I am content joining the Marine corps or Legion but the Lance Corporal at my recruiting office says I'm one of most fit people he's seen in months and that I'm very helpful to all the poolees and that he will help me any way he can in regards to my waivers thanks again for all the responses and advice it's appreciated greatly

Sorry to say, A Lance Corporal cannot help you with the waiver process. I wish you luck and I hope you are given the opportunity. To many are denied the opportunity at a shot at becoming a Marine.

Yes I understand a lance Corporal does not have the power to help me get my waivers approved but if he puts in a good word with my recruiter maybe it will help my cause i hope to have the chance to become a Marine if not so be it my choices have caused the situation i am in and I accept the decision the Marine corps makes in regards to my waiver
