Was Christopher Meloni A Marine ?

Just in case you wonder if Christopher Meloni was a marine, the truth is that Meloni (full  name: Christopher Peter Meloni) was not a Marine.  

In detail, Meloni, 52, is so brilliant at portraying NYPD detective Elliot Stabler - a hot tempered but empathetic and charismatic detective with a Marine Corps tattoo of a globe and anchor on his inner right forearm - on the NBC police drama "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" that many people believe he is an ex-Marine.

Meloni worked as a construction worker prior to getting his acting break. He has also worked as a bouncer, bartender and personal trainer. 

It has to be noted that Meloni has real tattoos: a Cubist-inspired representation of the crucifixion of Christ tattoo on his upper left arm, as well as a butterfly tattoo on his left upper thigh and a Chinese astrological chart of his family on his right lower leg.
