    Arcade, you sound like a religious fanatic, cult leader, false prophet, etc.

    I'm sure you think you have the enlightment on prophetic world events, but I find your post personally irritating and bazaar.

    I don't think this board is the proper venue for you to propagate your private interpertation of world events as seen though your spiritual bias.

    Arcade, I don't know what Marine Corps you are from, but a United States Marine, Lance Corporal, would never call a First Sergeant of Marines, "Sarge". A total disrespect and loss of military bearing. On active duty, you'd be mine for a long time.

    I can never remember any Marine addressing me as "Sarge" in my career, or in retirement. I am still addressed as First Sergeant by active duty and retired Marines, it is a Marine Corps Order you know. As a Sergeant, Staff Sergeant, Gunnery Sergeant, and First Sergeant of Marines, I've always be addressed by my appropriate rank, except by members of the Army. Even the fricking Navy doesn't use the term "Sarge".

    Are you sure you were in the same Marine Corps as the rest of us? If you were, then apologize to me and square you ass away, and never refer to me as "Sarge". I am First Sergeant.

    Well said, 1stSgt! And true.

    A related sea story, if I may, which bears on the conversation...

    When my mentor, GySgt Beeler, was promoted to MSgt, he made it very clear he was NOT to be addressed as "top". "I am a Master Sergeant of Marines. You will address me as 'Master Sergeant'. I am not a 'top'. I do not spin in circles and fall down. Are we clear?"

    It was not a mistake one made a second time.

    The only time I've been addressed as "Sarge" is by army pukes who call EVERY Sergeant 'Sarge'. They get all discombobulated when I address them using the proper title. Heck, I don't think even THEY know what "Sergeant First Class" means!

    I weep for what this country is becoming, and fear for my children and grandchildren's future if any more democrats gain national office. We lose more and more freedoms every single day to creeping nannystatism and those who vote for Democrats only want to increase that. Anyone voting for a 'dem' is someone who likely wants to take everything YOU have worked for and mortgage your kids future as well.

    Because the sad reality is, if you don't, you probably won't make it back. And even sadder...you may take a Marine or two with you, who was depending on you!
    Sounds to me like you need to inspect your 'brain-housing group.' Take it apart, clean it, re-assemble it, and check it. Right now, it's 'major malfunction' is "FAILURE-TO-FEED!"

    Nothin' Personal...Just one Marine lookin' out for another.

    lol guess I decided to come back after I was banned even though it irritated me

    I'm liberal on some issues, conservative on others. Guess you'd call me a swing voter.

    PLEASE tell me what makes a "liberal Marine" any less competant than a "conservative Marine"

    because if you can't prove that, quit the accusations that "I'm going to get Marines killed yada yada yada"

    because I know I'm damn good at everything I do, and the Marine Corps is no exception.

    even though I haven't been in combat, my track record in peacetime has been proven, not to mention I'm a stallar athlete and a great shooter.

    I was a meritorious Lance Corporal and my Staff Sergeant and Gunny has made numerous mentions of putting me in for meritorious Corporal already

    so even though I'm sorely dissappointed in what the Corps has turned out to be (as opposed to what the recruiter said it would be like) I'm still damn good at what I do and I am firmly confident I would not let down in combat

    so please, get off my back about my political views because they have NOTHING to do with my competence as a Marine !!!

    Laaaaters

    SuNman- So, you're "sorely disappointed in what the Corps turned out to be"...

    SuN....you got banned? I wondered what happened to ya LOL.

    No wonder it was so quiet around these parts...

    I do have to say, tho, if you've already made Meritorous LCpl, and are being talked about for Meritorous Cpl...why are you "dissappointed" in the Marine Corps?

    Lastly, while your political views "may" have nothing to do with your competence as a Marine, when you post them, they aren't some holy nugget to be 'oohed and aaahhed' about by the great unwashed masses. Expect comment and criticisim. It's how you defend those positions that defines and hones who and what you are. Posting stuff like that, and then *****ing about it, does you no good.

    In defense of "arcade", correct me if I'm wrong (and I likely am) but I read a book during the Korean War and they called a Marine Master Sergeant "Sarge"

    and since arcade served back in the 60's to early 70's maybe they used Sarge back then??

    disappointed in the conduct, appearance, leadership and competence of the Marines around me

    maybe its just the reserves...but when I see many Marines unq-ing rifle ranges, failing PFTs, being overweight, sitting around doing nothing 70% of the time as a unit, cheating on the rifle range, stealing from eachother - it does not give me the impression of an "elite organization" my recruiter told me it would me.

    I once considered myself above and beyond a regular US Army soldier for "earning the title Marine"

    I no longer hold that point of view. I do not think that we are in any way better than the regular US Army.

    But again, maybe its just the Marine Reserves. Maybe the active fleet is a lot more squared away. But I am disappointed for sure.

    We had a Corporal from active duty that came in for 3 drills (3 months) and took care of me and the things I needed to be done FAR BETTER than my Staff Sergeant ever has in 2 and a half years combined. When he saw how "heinous" our unit was, he couldn't stand it and now he's gone. Back to active duty.


    Yep. Thats why I'm dissappointed.
