This book is for the teenager or young adult who is interested in enlisting in the United States Marine Corps.

The goal of the McFarland Joining the Military book series is to help young people who might be curious about serving in the military decide whether military service is right for them, which branch is the best fit, and whether they are qualified for and prepared for military service.
