My MOM won’t let me join the Marine Corps! Help please?
I was real excited and told my mom how much it means to me to serve and how much I want this. She was horrified and said stuff like I’ll never become a Marine, it’s too dangerous, they’ll use me as a pawn, they’ll screw me over I’ll regret it, etc. I begged her for hours to please allow her consent and she REFUSED. She isn’t budging.
Do you think she’ll come around and eventually give consent? She’s all I have and I don’t have a father. It really means the world to me to serve and be a Marine, it’s an honorable field that I’d be forever privileged and honored to be in. I hate to wait another whole year and enlist when I’m 18, but I guess I’m willing to wait if worst comes to worst. Is there anything I can say or do to convince my mom to let me join while I’m 17?
Any advice and insight would be appreciated! Semper Fi!
