We are Marines first, so the first step towards becoming a Marine Raider is to become a Marine. If you are not a current active duty marine, please contact a Marine Corps recruiter to get started.
If you are an active duty Marine who is ready to advance your career as a Marine Raider, reach out to us today and we’ll help you take the next step.
HMST visits give you the opportunity to meet and speak with a recruiter in person, get your specific questions answered, and hear first-hand about what it’s like to be a Marine Raider. Check our calendar regularly to see scheduled screenings near you.
