Leatherneck Ch. 1
Hello, and welcome to another story! I’ve spent quite some time around Marines and figured it was about time to write a military AU. What better day to post a story about Marines than today? It’s the Marine’s 242nd birthday! (November 10th, 2017)
I hope you enjoy what I have in store for you! Keep in mind, this will have some terms you may not recognize or understand. I will try to include something at the end to explain what they are if I happen to use any of those terms. This story might seem fast paced, but that’s because there’s going to be a lot of time skips throughout.
Summary: Natsu enlisted to be one of the elite, craving adventure and combat. Turns out being a Marine wasn’t all about kicking down doors and firing a rifle. His recruiter never warned him about the green weenie, blue falcons, or working parties. Natsu tried avoiding trouble, but trouble found him. Thanks to his interest in Lucy, he can now add an angry officer to that list. Marine Corps AU

Chapter One: Lance Corporal Dragneel
Natsu felt unstoppable.
To be fair, every BOOT that just hit the fleet felt unstoppable. He endured thirteen weeks of boot camp, twenty-nine days of MCT, and two months of MOS school. The last one wasn’t supposed to take so long, but Natsu’s school was backed up, so it took a few weeks before he could start his classes.
But that didn’t matter to the man once he hit Camp Magnolia, the second largest base the Marine Corps had. He was a Private First Class since he took three years of JROTC in high school, so he was already off to a great start.
It took him about a week to get checked in, getting assigned everything from a barracks room to his CIF gear. He took it all in stride, anxiously awaiting the adventure he would have now that he was done with training.
As an ammo tech, it was no surprise to Natsu when he was put at the ASP -Ammunition Supply Point. He was assigned to RSI, which meant he received and issued ammo. Units would come in with their requests, and he would go through and pick out what they needed or collect what they had to turn in.
It was a tough job, but he loved it.
