Click here to edit subtitle

Welcome. Future Jarheads was created in 2004 for Marine Corps prospects by a Marine Corps veteran. My mission here is to offer each of you a very unique perspective of what you are asking to do or may one day want to do.

While most Marines will view their service as a positive experience, it is no secret that some Marines do not enjoy their enlistment and a few will even regret their decision to serve in the Marine Corps.


This website addresses the many issues and topics that will hopefully prevent you from making a mistake and that will hopefully prepare you for what is to come as you move forward from the process of enlistment to the regular Marine life. The unbiased realities about the Marine Corps that you are asking to be a part of can be found throughout this website and this website does what many recruiters and the USMC wont do, which is to fill in the blanks.


Future Jarheads strongly recommends that you do not visit with a recruiter until you have read, understand and accept what is written here. It is important to point out several very important things before you begin to read through the core of this website and you should keep these things in mind as you read through each page.  In order to give you the best chance at absorbing the FJ mission, you should begin reading this linked page first.
