United States Marine Corps

  I chose to join the U.S Marine Corps because it would be an honor to protect and serve my a kid I always wanted to be a soldier. I think that being part of the military would give me a lot of opportunities to become more mature and responsible. This program would also give me the luxury of being able to have a free college education to better myself and my future even more.

  on November 10, 1775 the U.S marines began to battle for independence at sea and on shore that is the official date of the marines first battle. that is the date that started the legacy of the the 1800s the marines were sent to the city of Derna by former president Thomas Jefferson. there, they battled Barbary coast pirates. the victory of the marines helped prince Harmet Bey reclaim his throne. in gratitude he presented his Mameluke sword to Lt. O'Bannon. this famous sword then became part of the marine uniform in 1825.

to join the marines you need to talk to a recruiter as well as be in the age range of 18-28. once you talk to a recruiter you will need to take a initial strength test which will consist of: pull-ups, flexed arm hang, crunches, and a timed will also need to take a combat fitness test  which will consist of: movement to contact,ammunition lift, maneuver under fire. you will also take the ASVAB test which will test your knowledge on math, English, and sciences. for more information you can visit the marine website on the "eligibility" tab

daily life

marines participate in lots of charitable causes as well as always being ready to benefit as a marine at all times. team work is an important role in the marines as well as leadership. marines in their free time usually exercise,stay fit, and spend time with their families.

career path

  I have chosen to become a marine because I want to serve and protect my country.i would also like to have more opportunities such as serving with honor and being the first in my family to join the military. it would make my parents proud as well as me being proud of myself for being part of this career. I would like to join the military so that I can later on improve my life . I want to have a free education and to work as well in something that I enjoy.

 I also always wanted to travel the world as well as become a mechanic for the military. I like working with machines and would appreciate staying in shape as well. I would like to improve my weapon and combat skills too. I believe that becoming a marine is a big step into the right direction.

To whom it may concern,

I am responding to the employment opportunity listed on your website. Please accept this letter and accompanying resume as evidence of my interest in applying for this job. I feel being a disciplined person and being able to follow orders thoroughly would prove to be an asset for your organization. For example in my classes I am very disciplined by doing all my work as well keeping a good GPA average. I am looking for an honored job that will add experience to my building career. Here are some of my key strengths that I would bring to the position; I am very well disciplined as well as very eager to learn new things. For example there was a time when my stepfather taught me how to make cement for a sidewalk that we were going to build and I made sure to pay a lot of attention just in case that I might need it in the future. I am confident that these qualities make me an excellent candidate for this position. I would appreciate your consideration of my credentials. And I welcome the chance to meet with you to hear more about your company, the requirements of the position, and how my skills would be a good fit.

Thank you in advanced for your consideration.

letter of recommendation

To Whom It May Concern:

May 22, 2015

I strongly recommend my colleague, Denise Morales, for employment at sonic to be a server, I have had the pleasure of working alongside her for one year in El Dorado 9th grade academy where she has been entrusted with a great deal of responsibility. For example she has taught young children to dance as well as doing babysitting for a family friend.

I have had the opportunity to observe Denise’s professional skills as well as interpersonal style. She is consistently responsible, and takes on all assignment with enthusiasm and dedication. I wish that all my peers had her responsible attitude because she is a real hard worker as well as having the ability to do and finish things on time.

Regardless of deadlines or other pressure, Denise always delivers. Her superior organizational skills make her the consummate multi-tasker. Therefore, I provide my strong recommendation for Denise Morales. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at (915) 422-8734.
