tell him to get a bachelors in criminal justice, it only takes 2 years (as apposed to 4), and your way less likely to catch a bullet, plus you'll
learn a lot more of the information that makes you a good cop instead of a gung ho cop.
edited to add:
Also since you are older, you may have friends who served and have recently gotten out, have them tell your brother about the real side of being a
marine/soldier. The recruiting officials tend to make it sound more "bad ass" then incredible horrible, and physiologically draining.
not saying its like that for everyone, but it doesn't sound like your brother wants to be a marine, he just wants career training.
