About This Quiz

Joining the military is a big decision, but deciding the Marines is the unit that you want to join is an even bigger one. The Marines are known far and wide as being the toughest unit that exists in the United States Military, which means that it just might be the toughest military unit in the entire world. 

It might sound like something that you want to do, but do you really think you have what it takes? Do you have the will, the desire, and the inner strength that is needed to be a Marine?

We suppose you could always just join up and find out for yourself, but we have to be honest if you aren't really cut out for it, or if it is something you don't want to do, then why go through a world of hurt just to figure that out? 

Basic training isn't a whole lot of fun, and it is a lot worse if you aren't sure you want to be there. They are "the few and the proud" for a reason, you know. Maybe you should just do us, and the Marines, a big favor and take this quiz to see if you want to join the Marines before you sign up. Your drill instructor and your mom will thank you.
