Marines are ignorant
- Im not trying to put down any marines no disrespect but most marines are just ignorant. Most are 18 year old graduates who think they are hardasses when they become a part of something and have a gun placed in their hand. Ya marines are considered badasses but when your first to go into combat how bad ass will you be coming home in a coffin? And the survivors come out psychotic having over ten bottles of pills in their med cabinet. So is tough? Not really. Basic camp is but after that and if you get sent to fight all you do is fire and watch people die. So you have mentally challenging also. Now an Air Force Pararescue Jumper(PJ) is hands down the toughest job. 20 weeks of intense training. A lot of it is water which most people can't handle. The failure rate is 80-85 percent. After and if you graduate you never stop training and it takes years before you actually go in combate. When you do You recover bodies in pieces or injured soldiers. So it's the toughest physically and mentally.

marines and our grunts
- all other branches can whine and complain, but united states marines have the toughest jobs. and our grunts have to deal with the majority of it. but thats because they are the war fighters, they are the badasses and no one else can compete with the crap they have to endure to keep us safe.

Physically? Academically, No comparison.
- The nuclear program is widely acknowledged as having the most demanding academic program in the U.S. military. The school operates at a fast pace, with stringent academic standards in all subjects. Students typically spend 45 hours per week in the classroom, and study an additional 10 to 35 hours per week outside of lecture hours, six days per week. Because the classified materials are restricted from leaving the training building, students cannot study outside of the classroom.

- the mos 13 foxtrot is one of the hardest MOS's the AIT is combined into 6 weeks. learning how to call in multiple different aspects of fire in 3 different ways. on top of that they learn every aspect of the infantry that 11 Bravos go through

With all apologies
- The Navy Nuclear program and it's subsequent rates are ONE of the harder fields in the armed forces. Without any chest pounding or bragging, I think we can all agree that only a select few have the aptitude and commitment to serve as ETNs EMNs, and MMNs.

- Any rate aboard a submarine. Especially a 688. You're trained on every piece of equipment on the boat, regardless of rate. You need to be ready to fight a casualty at any moment. When you finally prove to the rest of the crew that you're not a bag of dicks, and they know they can trust you with their life, you qualify in submarines and get your dolphins. And those fish mean more than any rank.

Since noone has stated yet....
- Right now Im in Aircraft maintenance (2A5X1) in the Air Force. Not the easiest job but far from the hardest. Just very demanding work. We have another job within our job that deals with loading the aircraft hours for the planes. We call this Debrief. Its called an Operations Dispatcher in the civilian world I believe. While doing this job deployed I got the chance to work with Analysis (2R0X1) and Maintenance Scheduling (2R1X1). These jobs are so easy physically and mentally. They are complete desk jobs. Analysis maintains the info that is put into the system by maintanence personnel and Scheduling schedules which planes to fly when. Simple as that. The base im at my job entails us to work 8 hr shifts, but our job runs 24 hrs a day. So you could either be on days, swings, or mids for your shift. Analysis and Scheduling will only work day shift. Ever. Unless your deployed and then you work 12 hr shifts either days or mids. depending on where you are located. Very simple.

Marine Grunt is hardest job
- Just like my fellow Marine posted, it sucks. You endure bootcamp which sucks. Go to training and you are still treated like a recruit. You get to your unit and you are a "boot". You are a Marine, but you will have no friends besides other boots. Until you come back from your first combat deployment you will not get much respect. The senior lance corporals will make you life complete hell. It's tradition though and on the flip side you can do it when new boots check in. You can expect to carry a broom and mop when your not in the field doing a pointless exercise. Marines don't have laser tag like the Army. It has the smallest budget in the entire military so don't expect much. You will clean weapons millions of times, just to be ordered to do something. That's not including 20 mile humps, log PT, 6 mile runs, and living in the field so long without a shower mold is growing on your balls. As a grunt you walk everywhere you go. The idea is to keep you so pissed off that you kill everythin
