Question # 7!!

I heard it is illegal for four or five Marines to walk down the street together. Is this true and if so why?

In all of the training and education I have gleaned from the United States Marine Corps regarding rules and regulations, customs and courtesies, and appropriate and inappropriate behavior, this is not a rule or regulation I am familiar with. I have on more the one occasion walked with several fellow Marines on both public streets and sidewalks and private on base streets and sidewalks. The only exception I can thing of was when I was in a student status (MCT or Comm. School). When walking with a group of Marines during the work day we had to march to and from wherever we were going. This did not restrict the number of Marines though, just the way we arrived at our destination.

Question # 6

Question:  Hello!! My husband is graduating next week as an 0651. He will be stationed in Camp Pendlton and they have told him that he might deploy in August :'( How long do data guys usually deploy for being in a support unit?

Answer:  I myself have not personally deployed (we are scheduled to deploy in 2011), but I know quite a few 0651 Marines who have deployed.  I know some who have deployed for as little as 4 months, others 6 months, and yet others out as long as a year to a 1 1/2 years.  There is no set time frame that I have seen that is a standard for deployment time for 0651 Marines.  It is all based on what the Marine Corps needs and the rotation schedule that they have implemented.  Although, if your husband is to recieve orders to deploy it should state the length of the deployment.  And do realize that if your husband will be serving his deployment as an 0651 Marine he will be relativley safe considering the enviroment he will be in.

Question # 5

Question:  Are Marines allowed to be in a relationship with other Marines while in MOS school in Twentynine palms CA?

Answer:  Yes, as far I know there is nothing prohibiting the dating of another Marine while in MOS school, provided that it does not violate the guidlines set forth by the Marine Corps fraternization policy.
