    Feeling stuck

    I loved boot. Liked mct. And all that junk. But now I'm at mos school waiting to pick up. Got news that I now have to wait another 2 weeks because of peters principle.(probably not the marines in charge probably did the job to a T but it just feels that way) im kind of out of moto and feel really trapped but I've never been good at talking about my problems so I don't know if the chaplain can really help. I'm always the guy people would look to for moto or when they felt down and needed a friend so people noticed today when I wasn't myself. I don't want me not being at top game to hurt unit cohesion but I don't really know what to do to get the weight off my shoulders

    It's not easy being a Marine. Being in the training pipeline is just a process that you will eventually get through. Once you enter the fleet, you will look back and tell yourself it was worth it. We're here anytime you feel the need to vent your frustrations as many of us have experienced the same feelings during our enlistments in the Marine Corps. Probably our most famous motto is, "Hurry up and wait."

    drop down and start doing bends and Mother*@uckers=

    least way until you learn to use a CAPITOL <M> when used to
    spell - - - - -
    MARINE !!!

    it could be arranged for you to recieve a shipment or
    two with your drinking water shipped to you
    in recycled 5 gallon fuel cans....


    Congratulations on earning the title-
    Stay away from the Chaplin -
    there's a detail down the chapel .

    In case you don't know what the recycled 5 gallen fuel cans mean, in the Nam they used to ship water out to us in 55 gallon drums that had in the past been used to transport diesel fuel. When filling your canteen from these drums you had to dunk it down deep to escape the slick on top, but it always tasted like diesel. Just saying.

    Youll be fine, trust me. The fleet is so much better than the school house. You still have all the BS that everybody hates, but you are treated like an adult until you give somebody a reason to not treat you that way. Just keep your head up and push forward.

    Russ consider yourself lucky please
    -for a number of reason -
    1, they didn't charge deposit for the drums
    2, they didn't make you sign for it
    3, they didn't use empties from A/orange-
    or any of the other solvents found around
    depots where " items " were found to fill an objective...

    besides -
    wouldn't have made sense to hover as a sittingduck
    while you went for a one for one exchange

    (" Just sayin')

    Thanks Ed, you make sense out of what I always thought was senseless. You've make my day with your clarity from your brightly shining light of wisdom.

    Well, there is obviously a change in attitude with new Marines these days. After I finished ITR (that would be the equivalent of MCT to boots), I was sent to truck driver's school. The schoolhouse was full and the bunch of us were divvied up and assigned to one of two places, either the Area Guard or mess duty. I got mess duty. No new classes were forming for a month. It's a *****, but oh well.

    I spent two weeks on mess duty and had to get my father to die so I could get out of it. I got back from emergency leave just in time to join my scheduled class otherwise I would have been on mess duty for God knows how much longer as my class was the last one until after Christmas/New Years.

    My point is, waiting for your class to form happens all of the time and has happened many, many times in the past. I expect it will continue into the future. Stuff happens. Embrace the suck. Be glad they don't have mess duty any more.

    Mess Duty was such a good education if you look
    back on it...
    I don't know how anyone made fun of them dudes-
    Mess cooks i mean,

    Can't tell you just how many times they saved my
    life from having to eat another MRE
