How do I tell my family that I want to join the Marine Corps? More details inside.
Okay so here's the deal. I'm an AFJROTC Cadet, my dad served in the AF 23 years and my mom wanted to join the Army but she couldn't. My brother recently enlisted in the Air Force too. To get to the point my dad's a bit too... pro-Air Force. He doesn't like the other branches (At all) and he wants me to join the Air Force too. The problem it that I want to be a Marine, I don't care what MOS I'll have, it's just my passion. He says that 'females don't belong in the Marine Corps, they belong in the Air Force'. I know that not everybody is for the AF (And I joined AFJROTC because I'm in military school and I didn't have another choice) and I just happen to be that kind of person. I want to be asked "Oh so what's your job?"
And I'll be able to say "I am a United States Marine."
Can any of you give me some advice on how do I sit down and tell him that? He'll probably explode of anger, but it's my own choice.
