    As a retired GySgt I ask you to not put all of today’s young Marines in that group. I served from 1986-2007, did 3 combat tours, and met many, many Marines that would make Chesty proud. Remember, some of these “kids” you refer to have 4-5-6 combat tours, so yes, sometimes there is an attitude, but that’s where we, the SNCO’s come in. If a troop of mine ends up in constant trouble I take that as failure on my part, and on the part of the NCO’s under me. Don’t worry…. Our beloved Corps are in good hands! Semper Fi
