    A lot of these I would laugh at as if they were a joke. Trouble is, I've prepped a lot of FITREPS for one CO or another and I can tell you that stuff like this does indeed make it on to a Marine's FITREP.

    No real reason for the dancing banana. I just felt like throwing it up there.

    Too bad some of these people slip through the cracks even in the Marine Corps, but as long as we recruit from the human race it will continue to be so.

    These reports reflect as much on the reporting seniors as the do about the men being reported on.

    A leader's performance evaluation is determined by the performance of those he leads.

    Or was that only in the 'old Corps"?
