There really isn’t a “typical work day” in the United States Marine Corps. Aside from waking up early, each day will vary drastically. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on the person. You will learn something new everyday, you will challenged everyday and you will grow as a person everyday. I am grateful for the uniques experiences, because I am now an excellent communicator, I am very punctual and I can give and take orders. While my experience in the Marine Corps was difficult and trying, I would do it a thousands times over.
