My 16 yr old son (17 in May) has expressed a lot of interest in joining the military, especially the USMC. He started out as a toddler staging massive battles with his armies of plastic army men and that grew into a lot of interest in military style video and PC games. His father joined in USMC in 1978 and served both on active duty and in the reserves and my son has great respect for that.
We will be travelling to Emerald Isle, NC in August for a two-week visit (8/2-16/08) and I wondered if was possible to actually visit a military base to give him a real-world experience of what military life might be light.
My assumption is that this is probably not permitted after 911.
Does anyone know if this is possible and what I would need to do if it is?
