    It seems funny that the Airforce would be winning considering during WWII when the Airforce emerged no one really cared for it and you were slightly look down at for not being a Marine. I'm pretty sure that changed after the Airforce dropped the Atomic Bombs and ended the war.

    Either way my vote goes to Airforce, I have a buddy in the Airforce who is over in Iraq right now.

              well if you're going for the $ that's the way to go, i believe the mercenaries get about 4x as much as your standard grunt - $100K a year.

                  I voted Coast Guard. Why? Just because they get no love.

                          U.S. Marine downing is investigated
                          Big News Network
                          Monday 21st February, 2005 (UPI)

                          Five Marines have been suspended and another placed on administrative duty during an investigation into the drowning of a recruit at Parris Island, S.C.

                          Recruit Jason Tharp died Feb. 8 from what the Marines described as complications in the water, CNN reported Sunday.

                          Tharp's parents told WIS-TV in Columbia, S.C., their son had been miserable in the Marine Corps and had wanted to quit.

                          A day before the downing, a camera crew from WIS-TV caught a tense moment between Tharp and a drill instructor, with the instructor grabbing and striking Tharp during a training session.

                          Tharp's parents said they are not certain whether there is any connection between their son's death and the videotaped incident, but they said they did not like the way their son had been treated.

                          A Marines spokesman at the Pentagon said the actions by the drill instructors seen in the videotape appear to violate regulations for dealing with recruits, CNN said.

                          (CNN) -- Five Marines have been suspended and another put on administrative duty during an investigation into the drowning of a recruit in a training pool at Parris Island, South Carolina, a Marine Corps spokesperson said Saturday.

                          Recruit Jason Tharp died February 8 from what the Marines described as "complications in the water," a day after a camera crew from WIS-TV in Columbia, South Carolina, shot video showing a drill instructor grabbing and striking him during a training session.

                          Military personnel are suspended in cases of suspected wrongdoing, which can include failing to report code-of-conduct violations to the proper authorities, the Marine spokesperson said. The suspended Marines were put on desk duty.

                          A swim instructor who was not suspended was also moved to administrative duty, the spokesperson said.

                          The TV crew was at Parris Island to report on basic training when it caught a tense moment between Tharp and a drill instructor. Another instructor told the crew that Tharp had been refusing to train.

                          Tharp's parents told WIS-TV that their son, who joined the Marines to earn money for college, was miserable and wanted to quit.

                          Although they said they were not certain there was any connection between his death and what happened on the tape, Tharp's parents were upset by the way their son was being treated. They also said he did not swim well.

                          A Marines spokesman at the Pentagon said the actions by the drill instructors seen in the video appear to violate regulations for dealing with recruits, an assessment backed up by an outside expert.

                          "Basically, you're not supposed to lay your hands on a recruit," said Eugene Fidell of the National Institute of Military Justice. "You don't really want to have drill instructors grabbing a recruit by the collar, which is what happened here, and you don't want to have them hitting them with elbows."
