    I am not defending this jerk but you ask any Marine about his basic and the others he did basic and you will hear similar stories, but as they figure it all out for themselves they begin to change. This guy should soon figure out that his mommy is not there anymore to wipe his ass for him. If he don’t get this figured out then the USMC will deal with that.

    We only complain to ourselves cause no one else gives a damn about our whines…

    I concur the 3 years I spent in the USMC was the best years. I remember them the most.

    This was in my thinking as well. These thought went through many of our heads at one time or another.

    The problem there is, those DI’s can’t do what they should do and be politically correct…damn politics don’t belong in the USMC or any other branch of the armed forces.
