    Anyone can become an officer. Usually, officers come straight from colleges, but that isn't the only way. Someone in the enlisted ranks can also apply for a commission. There is Officer Candidate School - which is a nice way of saying basic training for officer recruits. When you graduate OCS, you are officially an officer. Promotion and such is up to you after that.

    Yes women can become an officer in the Marines as long as they can pass the physical fitness standards and possess a college degree from an accredited College or University in the United States. Women will be able to be officers in a combat positions soon as well.

  • No, but women can. I was a Marine Corps officer and one of my contemporaries was the first woman General in the Marine Corps.

    She can become a General if she has the political skills and desire.

    No. We salute Women or females. "Girls" are children with easy bake ovens & Barbie dolls.
