Cobbs no longer apologetic about his time in the military
Bill Cobbs has had the honor of dually serving his county both as a Marine and as a soldier in the Army.
“You can’t go from any other branch to the Marines, but if you been in the Marines you can go to any other branch without any other additional physical basic training,” Cobbs said. “I joined the Marine Corps Reserves when I was a senior in high school. I joined Army ROTC at Iowa State where I was going at the time and I was training to be an officer. So I was listed in the Marines and I was training to be an officer at Iowa State.”
Cobbs was able to skip the first two years of ROTC at Iowa State thanks to his service in the Marines. He left the Marines as a Lance Corporal and went into the ROTC and Army National Guard in a simultaneous program as a man without a position.
