Does a Marine have a choice of where to marry?

Q. Does a Marine have a choice of where to marry? Can they marry in their finance’s hometown or does it have to be at the miliary base in a different state? My friends were going to marry in June 2012 but now the marine will deploy overseas at the end of March. Thank you.

They can marry wherever they choose. They may have to take leave in order to do so, but they are not restricted on where they choose to get married. Usually the trickiest part is getting leave approved especially if the Marine is close to deploying. This also goes for any branch of the Military not just the Marine Corps.
