Hey princifur i read on the "Help a young man decide" thread that you had a degree in civil engineering. so i assume you went to school before you deicide to joing the marines. But let me get to the point you said you would like to be a combat engineer it sounds a bit interesting to me i have always want to either be in infantry or be an engineer and not musically for the military but a engineer in general. I have put the whole engineering thing on the back burner till i read ur post and it got me thinking. Well i was hoping you could tell me about combat engineering ~!What They Do!~, were they go, schooling, pay, extra... and also about civil engineering if you could any. the civil engineering is equally IMOPORTANT so tell me as much as you can about both types please.
