I'm a 16 year old girl and it is my dream to become a Marine officer. My concern is that if I apply for USNA and am accepted, I will spend most of my time behind a desk without ever getting to experience being close to the action or will have to go Navy. Not that I wouldn't be honored, but I want to be a Marine. I'm sad that I will never be able to go infantry, but at least if I enlist I can try for MP or Truck driver, and get outside the wire a bit. Would it be better for me to go to school now, enlist and then try for NROTC or OCS? Do you need a four year degree for NROTC and OCS? What are the requirements? Can I take classes while enlisted? Is this recommended? If I do go the USNA route, how much control will I have over MOS and whether I go Navy or Marine Corps? What exciting jobs can female officers do? Lots of questions! Sorry if similar ones have already been posted on this forum and answered. Thank you in advance!
