Just out of curiousity can a canadian join the US Marines? I was thinking
about doing it for a little while just for a change. Mind you I don‘t know
if I would like being around the yanks for so long and donning the american
uniform. I was just thinking that it would be cool to play with the toys
that they get to play with. But I do love serving my country. Ah well.

Just responding to one of your queries on joining foreign armed services.
My son Mike is presently with 3PPCLI in Bosnia. About a year ago he looked
at joining the US Marines. I had joined USMC as a Canadian in 1967 and he
was wondering if the same rules applied. Then I had to emigrate to the US
and could join as a "landed emigrant", but could not take out dual
citizenship" At that time the military would sponsor you, not now
Now you must be a US citizen to join. This applied to all 5 forces Air
Force, Army, Marines, Navy and Coast Guard

I know that this is not in response to your question, which by the
way I think, but I am not positive, that you have to have some kind of
status to join or a parent that was american. However if you are interested
in playing with american equipment while in the militia maybe wait until the
next time the unit goes down to the states as they did last year. That is
providing that there is a next time. I am from B SQN and I was curious as
to what kind of parading you guys do down there. I want to see if we are
getting ripped off up here. If you are who I think you are you should have
just got of your driver‘s course for the AVGP if not please correct me.

david,
It is so incredibly easy for ANYONE to join the
American armed forces. A lot of people use it as a
way to get their citizenship there is no citizenship
requirement to join. You probably need a greencard
to join though, but those are easy to come by. As far
as your choice of the Marines, I was in the Army so
you probable know what I‘ll say about that. If you
want toys go to the Army, try to join into something
in the Special Operations command USASOC Rangers
would be a better choice than the Marines. I was in
USASOC active duty and now as a reservist nothing
real cool, Tactical Psychological Operations and we
got and get more equipment and toys Night vision,
radios, GPS, WEAPONS than anyone else in the Army or
Marines. My reserve unit trains out of Camp
Pendleton, a Marine Corp Base, and it‘s pitiful when
our lot of reservists has more and newer stuff than
they do.

i realise that some of you offering your wisdom on this topic are a member
of the US or canadian military, and therefor probably know more about this
as i am a member of neitheryet. however, i thought i should share what
little i know because it may be of interest.
before putting my application in for the canadian forces reserves, i
inquired by emaili forget the site i did this through, i stumbled upon it
about joining the US Army, as a canadian.
i recieved a letter in the mail about 3 weeks later, from US Army Recruiting
Commad, Fort Knox, Kentucky, 40121. they told me, and i quote
"we appreciate your interest in the army. however, since one of the basic
requirements for enlistment is that the applicant be a united states citizen
or united states national, your citizenry makes you ineligible to enlist."
so there it is. perhaps the marines set their own policy on this matter, i
cant say for sure. anyways, this is what the US Army told me, so i will
assume it to be correct. this is current as of january 18 of this year.

See indeedy Marler I just did get off my drivers course. I am trying to
figure out who you are. Oh well. We parade every wednesday night with some
of them just being admin nights. The last couple of trainging nights we
learned about the new radio woohoo Basically we are just going over
everything we learned on QL3. Last wednesday night we should have had off
because all we did was try to start out Cougar. But that only succeeded in
frustrating everyone because the damn thing didn‘t start even after we
slaved it. What do you guy s do up there? I heard you just get beasted the
whole night. That would suck. I don‘t think that we can repell anymore
because Shiavone and MacDonald are gone. And they were our repelmasters. and
the likelyhood of a Sallie getting a repelmasters course in next to zero.
Such is the life of the Armoured Reserve soldier. Ah well. It was fun while
it was available. Well talk with you later bye bye.

For sure Canadians can join the United States military, as can just about
anybody from anywhere after having signed up for something like 5 years
they‘ll grant you US Citizenship, I remember reading somewhere that during
the height of the Vietnam War that there was approximatley 50000 Canadians
in the various Branches of the US Forces .

Don‘t worry about knowing me after the MTSC exercises you will know who I am
as everyone seems to. That is disappointing that Shiavone and Macdonald got
out because they we good. Most of the things that we do on a wednesday is
classroom lectures. I am the mess manager so I end up doing other things
than training on some nights. Don‘t worry about the repelling because once
you get some real driving time down you will enjoy what being in the unit is
generally about. If you joined because you like driving the best is to get
a tasking on a BCT course. That is what I did last summer and it gave me
allot of driving experience driving because my DS staff were reg force and
you learn allot about the vehicles then. It sounds to me that your cougar
is just about as good as ours is. We usually uses about one can of starter
fluid in order to start it. Hopefully we will have to opportunity to do
some maintainance on it to get it working a little better than it is. Well
hopefully you come on the MTSC exercises then I can find out who you are. I
have just heared your name from some of the troops that were on the drivers
course like Kopiak, Dyndor, and little Tinline. Hope to see you then. Try
and make them they are a good go.
