This hilarious video shows the 'hype vs. reality' of Marine life

There's a common misconception of life in the Marine Corps being filled with action-packed activities and explosions. However, reality doesn't always live up to expectations. For instance, there are things that sound awesome, like the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP), which one would expect to be filled with roundhouse kicks and other Street Fighter moves.


And then there's reality, which involves no roundhouse kicks and a lame peer evaluation.

The boys of Terminal Boots put together this short video with four scenarios showing what Marines expect in a situation followed by what really happens.
