You ever look at that Sergeant Major or that Gunny and say to yourself, “wow, that guy looks like he’s 50!” Well, years of stress will make you age quite quickly. I knew a guy that was in for 3 years and his hair was almost completely gray. If you want stress, the Marine Corps has it. And lots of it!
Every re-enlistment will do a number on your face and your body. Your face will wrinkle, your eyes will have bags and crow’s feet. So if you don’t want to look like your 50 by the time you are in your early 30s, you might as well go Air Force.
Looking 10 years older since 1775.
