  • basic marine question

    What is the minimum amount of time in the military if you join the Marines? I know before I was interested in Army SF, but I guess that to do that there is a minimum enlistment time of 5 years. So for the Marines, what is it? I'm guessing 2 or 4.

    For active duty it's at least a 4 year commitment. 8 years if you count the time in the inactive reserve. (4 years active/4 years where you return to civilian life but are still obligated to service if called on.)

      Oh ok, I didn't know there was 4 years inactive required after that. Well, in those 4 inactive reserve years does it usually come up? I mean, is it likely you'll be called back again in the reserve years, or is it more of a last resort just-in-case thing?

          I have a buddy who just got called back by the Army. He's been out for 2 years. He heads to Ft. Benning next week, then after 25 days....he's off to sunny Iraq to get assigned to a MP unit.....and will be on orders for no less than 440 days (Lord only knows where the Army came up with those numbers....but that's what his orders say....)

            If you are considering being an MP in the Corps you should know that they have raised the enlistment to 5 years....I am currently an IRR for about a year now and I havn't been called up.
