My cousin is a great kid, but he has absolutely ZERO discipline. Instead of going to class the second half of his senior year, he screwed around and "texted" thousands of times with his friends each day. he failed his classes and cannot graduate this year. First off, does one need a diploma/GED to get into the Corps, and will the Marines make him responsible or are some "unmakable"? I think he needs to get away from his parents and become an adult, but he isn't ready. I wonder if the Marines would "help" with that.
