Most people do not understand the United States Marine Corp, it is not like the other branches of the military. The higher demand from Marines requires a higher level of discipline. It is perfectly logical. If only civilian jobs came with the intense training and clarity of conduct and policies the USMC comes with.
But Being a Marine comes with two other distinctions besides just being a job. One, it is also the military where you are willing to sacrifice your life for fellow Marines and country. Two, the Marine Corp is one of the more disciplined branches of the military.
When you are talking about defending life and country, the rules and standards have to be higher than most other jobs. And although I have seen many ground up and spit out of the system, it is the best I have experienced. For the most part it is logical and fair. If you disrespect your team leader, NCO, etc. the punishment is proportional. If you dis-respect an officer, much more severe. Commanding general, one must be self destructive. Disrespecting the Commander in chief, the president, definitely don’t deserve to be in the military or receive any benefits from being in. I wouldn’t want to trust my life or my country in the hands of someone who breaks those clear rules of always show respect to your officers, commanders and country.
(Agree or disagree with our president, I always show respect to the person holding the highest office in the country. Even after being out of the USMC fro decades.:>)
Yes the Lean Green Fighting machine does spill some milk, the results of the high standards is we are left with the cream of the crop. You shouldn’t feel sorry for one that didn’t make the cut. Many have been booted out for less, leaving only the best. :>)
