This question is for all the service members.
I'm going into the Marine's soon; I just wanted some opinions on whether I should go Force recon or MARSOC.
Any opinions welcome.

Generally most people that are in Marsoc came from Forecon. You can't get into Force Recon until you're an E-4(corporal) which is basically three years. So you go into force recon for several years until you're eligable for becoming a CSO. They have different missions and you have to be unbelievably fit to get into either.
Get either an infantry contract (3xx) or a recon contract (UZ). Recon contract guarantees you a chance at recon but if you wash out you'll be reassigned and probably to a non combat role since infantry is over saturated. With an infantry contract you are guaranteed a combat role but you may not be able to get into recon if there are no spots left. You should really talk to a recruiter.0
