My son died and the Corps treats me like shit

Ive got one for you, and it may not be a big suprise and some of you may have had a similar experience.  Two months ago my wife and i lost our son to complications of a premature birth.  My division was nice enough to give me time to be at the hospital and go home for the funeral.  Then I shit you not, 3 days back at work and they treat me like nothing ever happend and then want to get im my business about why im moping around and dont want to work. Gee, i wonder the fuck why!  I go to medical to try and get on an anti-depressant and to get some help.  They ask me if im going to kill myself, and when i say no, they give me an appointment for 3 days later. thanks guys. then when i have the appointment the first thing the doc asks me, knowing why im depressed, is so why do you think you’re depressed? i tell him and his response, and i quote, ” God Dammit, im sorry bro.” (navy officer btw) and then he types his notes then before he releases me tells me, as a smoker and occasional drinker, again i quote, “Stop fuckin drinkin, and stop Fuckin smokin, cus it aint gonna help.” classy right?  Anyhoo, im getting booted anyway for medical issues, and now this, understandably i just want to be left alone, and that shouldnt be too much to ask, but in the last month ive been treated like im just worthless and lazy and need to get over it.  Bottom line, the corps preaches all this shit about taking care of each other and being there when we need it, but all the COC gives a shit about is work and themselves. the lazy bastards sit in the office and play msn games all damn day then come out at the end of the day and bitch at us because we are worthless.  One team one fight my ass.  Dont trust those mother fuckers to take care of you when you really need it because they will fuck you time and time again.

    I must say I can kinda relate…. Me and my wife had a miscarriage. I notified my Sgt. who told my Gunny who was kind enough to tell me to go home for the day and submit my leave request by monday, which I did. It was approved and I went on leave for 10 days. When I came back I had the rest of my platoon asking me how my wife’s pregnancy was going….? Lol are you fucking kidding me? My unborn kid just died and your’e asking me this… Man what a great place the Marine Corps is…. Sorry for your loss… Hope it all turns out well.

    it depends i guess. i lost my son in nov before he turned 4 months old. everyone esp ipac was more worried about the ball and getting their leave submitted for the holidays. good thing about that we were at our home of record for nearly a month without using a single day of leave no questions asked. my sons death stuff and insurance is still pending bc they submitted it straight to the company when, after a few phone calls, Va tells us it was suppose to go thru quantico first. no biggy. then i get aletter from the commandant expressing his condolences but with my others sons name. i wrote him, as nicely put as possible and a captain sent an email to our xo saying this squadron is needed up for sending up the wrong info. and it want until that email wad sent that people are starting to notice that the routing of the paperwork wad all messed up. don’t offer your help then go screw everything up. we should just done everything ourselves. needless to say. eas cooking up in a several months and counting the days…

    We all have tragedies in our lives and then have to go back to work. I guess you wanted to go back and just sit around and cry while being paid? Is that it?  

    • FruitOfMyLabor

      No. I don’t think that was it.

      You sir are a prime example of whats wrong with the Marine Corps. Its suppose to be a brotherhood is it not? If your brother or sister went thru the same ordeal would you still feel the same way? Probably because youre an incompassionate prick.
