1 Year Lance With a Question

I’m a Lcpl, almost about to hit my 1st year mark out of 5. I’ve come to this site a few times and it’s helped greatly. At times, I feel that the MC is actually the the institution I was looking for when I see some Marines that are actually great leaders, who don’t fuck with you and actually cares what you think. Other times we have the usual motard, or marine that just fucks others or fucks with others. I joined for the brotherhood, self-improvement, and overall experience of being “A Marine.” but all I got was petty chores, a narcissistic leader, and no freedom. Why is this?

    wow…03killer and elliot, you have no idea how brainwashed you both are.  just your name (killerofbabies) and “you’re a boot” type comments have been passed down from generation to generation of brainwashed marines. here is a guy writing saying, “i want more than the corps is giving me” and you guys shut him down.  its guys like you that are the problem.  you clearly dont care about what he thinks which is exactly the problem he is posting about.  how about this:  hey man, its your first year.  bottom of the totem pole, so you’re gonna get some crappy assignments. i got in when i was 28.  so being ordered around by guys who outrank me, yet have little or no life experience blows!  i’ll say the usmc is not for me and i’m looking forward to getting out, but there are some really amazing opportunities that i only got from being in.  stick it out, and if you decide its not for you, you have done your time and you are free to go.

    Basically, a lot of your so-called leaders are trying to make sure they get to retirement.  So they’re going to do whatever they have to do to keep their superiors off of their backs.  They’re going to make sure that everything looks clean and organized, because as long as it looks nice at first glance, no one high ranking will take a second look and notice that it’s horribly dysfunctional.  They’re going to make sure that the things that they can put on a fitness report get accomplished first so it makes them look highly productive, while things that may matter more to the mission, but don’t matter as much on paper can be overlooked.  They’re not going to listen to any possibly good ideas from junior marines because it sounds like way too much effort to change the way they’ve been doing things for however many years.  And they’re going to be insistent that pt must be conducted every day at Zero-Dark-Early hours because if all of the junior marines have high pfts and cfts then that means that the leader must be doing is job right!

    So sometimes you have good leaders who view mission accomplishment in a timely and efficient manner as being the priority, or more often, you have failures at life who know they could never accomplish anything outside of the marine corps so they need to make sure that they stay in the marine corps until they can receive their pension.

    Safety and Peace

    Just stick it out brah, keep your head down and your mouth shut and make sure you complain or bitch to the right people. Everyones got stories about r-tarded NCOs and Staffs. Its no different no matter who you talk to. Give it a couple of years, and if youve kept your nose clean you be good to go. The best strategy i had was to make myself likable with everybody. I wasn’t anything special, just did my job, kept myself outta too serious of trouble and was lucky enough to stay with the same unit my entire enlistment. By year three i was pretty good friends with everybody, most of us joined at the same time so we had a lot in common in terms of the bullshit we were going through. Sentimental or not, your peers are probably the best option to help you muscle through, unless you’re a female or a perennial fuck-up, you’ll be fine. The first two years are usually pretty shitty for every Marine. Kepp in mind though, there will always be stupid fuckin games to play in the military, no one is immune to the big green wienie.
