    IT depends on what you want to do, the RMC are the best Marine Corps in the world, still, more akin to being a commando than an elite infantry like our Marine Corps but a great challenge for you to take. If you want to join anything in the US, I would go the USMC route after you get a Permanent Visa, it will also help fast track your citizenship if you go into the US Military.

    As for what Eric said about the Brit Royals being the best Marines, thats total horse-****. If you want to see Combat and win battles, join the USMC. If you want to train and pretend you are a combat veteran, join the Brit Royals. Remember training is one thing, doing it is another entirely.

    Source(s): 8 years USMC infantry, 3 times combat vet in Iraq '05-'08, 1 year contracting with Brit Royals and SAS
