I'm writing up the backstory to a new character, actually for a Dead Reign game. I'm looking to get some idea's about what a 20 year career in the U.S. Marine's might look like for a new game, and I figured there might be someone here that might have some idea's or thoughts hopefully. Say from the time period of 1990-2010.

In the alternative, are there any good sources (either books or online) that might detail something like this?

What sort of information are you looking for? The 1990-2010 ish period for Marines could cover deployments in two gulf wars, embassy attacks, naval ship attacks, Central and South American anti-drug deployments, assignments to Japan/Okinawa. Any help?

Sorry for late reply -

I figured the character joins mid 1990 - Infantry, and likely spends the rest of it in training. In 1991 is in the 1st Gulf War.

I figured 6 years Infantry, various units.

Around 1996, decides to become Military Police and gets Special Response Training.

After 9/11, the character is then part of a FAST company.

in 2003, returns to Infantry and is part of the 2nd Gulf War. Both the initial invasion and later actions like the Battle for Fallujah.

In 2004 part of the Anti-Terrorism Battalion.

In 2007 part of Marine Corps Special Operations, retiring in 2010


That's my very rough outline. Any help is appreciated.
