Aspect 3 #10 There are numerous places on base to unwind and many opportunities to refresh, but when the work is done, most Marines find themselves enjoying the company of fellow warriors. There is no tighter bond than that which exists between Marines.

Aspect 3 #3 Marines deal with an different range of challenges. The Iraq War offered the constant fear of roadside or suicide bombings and the uncertainty as to whether any given Iraqi citizen is an innocent civilian or an insurgent. They are far from home, facing death on a daily basis and watching their close friends get killed or wounded, basically, life for a Marine hasn’t changed much in 200 years.

Aspect 3#6 Although every Marine is entitled to free on-base housing, all Marines do not live on base. Officers or others authorized to live off base can receive a monthly housing allowance. In addition, the Veterans Administration offers loans for purchasing a home, both during and after service.

Aspect 3 #7 Your Marine will be stationed based on his or her experience, or job, and the Corps' needs at the time. Most Marine Corps bases are located on either the east or west coasts of the United States, but there are a few bases and installations in locations like Hawaii and Japan.
