    Maybe earning the title is the hardest thing to do, but getting out the right way comes a close second. You are trained to be a Marine, and if you get drummed out with a DD or a BCD, I can't see how...

    The burden of an all volunteer miltary falls on the volunteers. I think there are some considerable advantages to having an all volunteer army, but if manpower is a problem we should consider a...

    As someone who was drafted many, many years ago, I have no doubt that some of the best personnel I knew were draftees. I fail to see how you can fight the war on terror without a draft. Either we...

    I never had a problem with people disagreeing with the war in Viet Nam. That is what a democracy is and, at least in part, what we were fighting for. Many people, including Jane Fonda herself, try...

    Well, boot camp is hard and dangerous. I would like to think that if a recruit was hurt or killed and errors were made by staff it would be owned up to. But the bottom line is that you simply can't...

    While he may be proud of his uniform, he apparently hasn't yet learned that there is a chain of command and that that chain of command makes decisions that all must follow. The principal's reasons...

    Park your ego at the door. It will just get in the way. If you are not a stud, take advantage of all of the additional PT training offered at the beginning of the program and do whatever you can to...

    Ten days doesn't work. It still is worth the risk if you factor in all of the ways you can beat a urine test. Make it a year and you'll start seeing some results.

    I for one am tired of people like this being labeled as ex or former Marines. You rarely see people who were in the Army, Navy, or Air Force being labelled this way. Perhaps it is just a by product...

    I don't think any of us knows all of the facts on which the Commandant based his decision. Maybe it was based on feedback from the families of the hundreds of Marines killed in Iraq. Maybe it was a...

    If anyone doubts that the Israeli's would do this, just think back to Iraq. And then think where the world would be if the Israelis had not destroyed the Iraqui reactor.

    The DI is as much a victim in this as the recruit. He will certainly suffer and be made an example of. We have all been in the situation where a little motivation was necessary, and most of the...

    I think you need to sit down again with a recruiter and discuss both the officer programs and the enlisted. No one goes into officer training a "leader" because there aren't many similar jobs in...

    Hell, there are some 19 year olds who act like they're 40, and some who act like they're 12. Don't junk a working relationship just because of an artificial barrier. I'm 56, and when you get to be...
