COMMDOG7.....I'm an AZZHOLE! Don't know WHY I got so fired up. It's not a secret, that I've tried to kill myself 3 times, and have been put in a rubber room, in a straight jacket, with an I.V. of Thorazine....or something similar. My anger, has gotten me into some VERY SERIOUS trouble, with John Law. When I was arrested, last year, for attempted murder of two men, in a bar fight....my shrink saved my miserable life, and put me BACK into my "padded condo". I take Zoloft, Trazadone, Zanax...and a few others, for my stupidity. I OWE YOU A BIG ONE!! PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COLLECT, ANYTIME....ANYWHERE.....I'VE GOT IT COMING. You have my SINCERE APOLOGY, for acting like an AZZHOLE.....SEMPER FI.....DOC

You know what Doc, I'm done. I have tried to be respectful and help you out, but all you want to do is kick me in the nutz. You do not understand what I am trying to say, you do not understand it when I tell you that I like ribbons just like I like serving my country, but when it comes to the war dead then I could honestly care less about ribbons. You don't understand how much I AGREE with you, you focus on this pre-conceived idea that I must be EVIL because I think that MSG's deserve their ribbon, and no matter how much I try to explain myself to you, you refuse to listen. Yes, I must be a sh!tty Marine because I take pride in my uniform. I must be a sh!tty Marine because I take pride in my serving to my country. I must be a sh!tty Marine because I am thankful for those who have given their lives for this country. Oh, and I must be a sh!tty Marine because I look for signs of PTSD in those who have seen combat and just want to help. You attack your allies before you even understand what they are about. I have good intentions, I am sad that you cannot see that.
And Pete0331- PTSD is not a bad thing! It is not shameful. I do not know if Doc has it or not, I am not a psychologist. But based on his combat experience and his anger in these threads, maybe he has some things he should get off his chest. Like I stated earlier, when capitalized words are used, it is perceived as yelling. If he does not want his statements misrepresented, then he should be careful with what he capitalizes.

Not pointing out any particular Marine from reading this post, so please bear with me.
A lot of Marine's confuse a "B-Billet MOS" with a "Special Duty Assignment MOS"....all SDA's are B-Billets, not all B-Billets are SDA's....big difference.
The SDA's are the duties such as Drill Instructor, Recruiter, MSG Duty, SOI Instructor that put one above their peers who have not completed a SDA and briefed at the promotion boards as such for promotion qualifications.
Technically, by definition, any MOS that takes you out of your primary MOS for duties is a "B-Billet"....
When I started out as a Career Planner as a Sergeant, it was a "B-Billet" MOS but not a SDA...then later on it became a primary MOS to become similar to the career Recruiting Force, and continues to be morphed more and more.
I don't agree with the ribbon's for performing a SDA, we're not the Army as was stated by the CMC and yes, their duties are strenuous and demanding, so isn't being a Marine in the fleet...and for a large part, the Marine's volunteered and were screened for those assignments (excluding the "body snatchers" from Recruiting lol!!)....

What ever happened just for the love of serving the Marine's in any capacity, regardless of reward?
What do you get out of MSG Duty. How about a TS Clearance and exposure to dignitaries that many people outside of the Dept of State would never otherwise have that opportunity. How many SNCO's can be in "command" of a group of Marine's outside MSG Duty? Zero.
How many Marine's leave active duty to work for these entities? I have a few former Marine's that did that and they are making serious $$ and having fun doing it.
As far as my statement I made, that is from everything I learned as a Career Planner from the Squadron, Wing, Bn, and Regiment Level's dealing with the Monitors daily and worked up a NUMBER of MSG packages as both inentives for reenlistment and for career enhancement. I knew the MSG monitor(s) fairly well and spent considerable ammounts of time on the phone with them and occasionally at visits to both Cherry Point and Camp Lejeune.
