No, "unique" you are not. Seems many of the experienced/retired Marine's new MOS is to dish out sarcasm's, "boo-hoo's" and to read something between the line's that isn't there. To run those of us who have new Marine's, or potential Marine's out of here, while we're trying to learn, and trying to figure out the how's, what's and why's.
Instead of really reading, some of you sock us in the gut and behave towards us as DI's do recruit's. And, I don't believe that is deserved by any of us who stand with our son's, or daughter's as they work to enter into the Corp's.

I can appreciate your concern if you have a young Marine going through boot camp, or is new in OUR Marine Corps. However, your concerns are nothing compared to actually going through Parris Island or SD. Do not forget, WE have all done that. M14ed was simply attempting to help a concerned mother who took his assistance the wrong way.
Parents, please remember that your son's and daughter's have chosen to become one of US. The Marine Corps is the finest fighting force in the world as a result of many of us "Experience" Marines on this very forum. Many Marines on this forum have actually participated in historic battles and have personally enhanced the reputation of our Corps.
We are here to help each of you, if we seem to be different or Unique, we are.
There is an old saying about us: No better friend, no worse enemy. Least you forget, that is what has been said about these Experienced Marines.

I had already apologized to the commenter for taking his own remark the wrong way. I'm new here, and am not familiar with the lingo. All I wanted, as you say, was to learn, and in doing so I can better understand my son's aspirations and achievements. In this way also, I feel closer to him. Like you say, I am not a recruit, and do not appreciate the sideways remarks made by some here following this misunderstanding, but I understand and forgive it. Regardless of where I get my information, my goal is to always stand behind my child.
