Fleet Marine Life #47 – USMC Supply

2011-06-10-fleetmarinelife47 - USMC Supply

 

There are many things that are inefficient in the Marine Corps. One of them is the supply system. I don’t understand why it takes so long to receive supplies, that is, if we even receive supplies. I spent $200 in Afghanistan on necessary supplies. I knew my bosses weren’t going to get them, those lazy bastards.

People in supply, get hooked the fucked up! I remember walking in one supply office and everyone’s got their own mahogany wood desk, black executive swiveling leather chairs that roll around, wireless mouses, wireless keyboards, flat screen monitors for their computers, that were all up-to-date and all that shit. I remember one time, supply hooked up all the SNCOs and officers with their own deployment bags, which were freaking nice, and expensive ass watches. Is this really how we spend the tax payer’s money?

Also, in order to get stuff from supply, apparently, you have to know someone in supply. Or you have to know a guy who knows a guy in supply. The normal route is always inefficient so Marines have to go around and use the backdoor. I remember in Afghanistan, I was wearing these really shitty pairs of boots. I figure, we’re in Afghanistan, the sandiest bitch on the planet. My Sergeant demands I go get new boots because I look unprofessional. I tell him that there is no where to get new boots. He says he’ll take me to a guy that knows a guy in supply. So I went off with him and reluctantly took these brand new boots, which I’m sure someone was really waiting for. A few months later, those new boots looked like shit because we’re IN AFGHANISTAN.

Buying our own shit since 1775.

Accessory to Murder

Today the battalion was briefed on the new reenlistment tiers. It contains: PFT, CFT, Rifle Score, Pro/Cons, MCMAP Belt, Awards, and NJPs. Anyone notice anything here? IT’S THE SAME DAMN THING AS THE CUTTING SCORE! Seriously! The same broken system of promotions that fucks perfectly qualified marines into being terminal lances, while Inbred PT studs who can’t tell the difference between a fighting hole and their asshole get promoted because their Inbred Fucktard brains figured out how to suck on a SNCOs dick to boost their Pro/Cons, is now being used to determine who gets to stay in!

Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, units are pumping money into Afghanistan’s economy to improve their quality of life (while back home our economy goes to Hell), knowing full well that this money isn’t going to the PEOPLE, we give it to the people and then the fuckin’ Taliban shows up at their door, and say “Your money or your life bitch!” and uses our money to fund their operations against us. And I know this happens because it happened on my last deployment! I saw the paper with the BATTALION COMMANDER’S SIGNATURE at the bottom confirming that this is happening! Furthermore, the unit I was with decided not to change this because, and I quote “Under the current conditions, the Taliban in the area are remaining peaceful.”

WTF OVER?! Here I am trying to do the whole “Defending freedom” bullshit and they’re over there just supplying the enemy with money so they won’t attack us, because God Forbid somebody get hurt during a combat deployment.

So in closing, FUCK YOU MARINE CORPS! The blood of every GOOD MARINE who died over there is on my hands now, because I defended you while you were busy selling out. You turned me from someone who was trying to “defend freedom” into an ACCESSORY TO MURDER.
