    Advice from an old Marine to newly minted Devil Dogs.....

    I'm going to be honest here. My first two years in the Corps, I was a model Marine. Then, when I was three minutes late for mess duty, I got burned pretty bad in Office Hours.
    Instead of taking my lumps, like a man, I rebelled and became a sh*t-bird. I thought, "I'll show these guys!"
    Well, long story short....they showed me.
    I didn't hurt the Corps by my actions and attitude. I only hurt myself and my future in the Marine Corps.
    So, keep your nose clean. If you do make a mistake...be a Marine. Accept the consequences of your actions, and go on from there.

    When I was a rookie cop there was a rule to be at roll call 15 minutes before the hour. I came in just after they started the roll call and my Lt simply told me if I couldn't be on time to just go home and think about it with no pay. I was never late again. Hard Corps, like I was still in the MC.

    Today, they're actually paid for those 15 minutes every day.

    I broke all kinds of rules in Nam, a lot of us did. Some however, turned out to be for the best. Rules didn't matter much when it came to keeping you and your brothers bodies in one piece.
