My advise to everyone here thinking about going into the Marine Corps……..DONT! Join the Army or the Air Force. I’ve learned in my years in the Corps that most leaders are all about them selfs, not about the Corps. They may use the Corps as an excuse as to why they do a lot of the stupid things they do; but the fact is that most leadership, mostly SNCO’s and maybe a few officers care more about them selfs than anything else.
Some of the dumbest people I’ve ever known are Marines. And what’s worse is that all of these MOTARDS lead Marines. I work with one right now who is about the dumbest SNCO I’ve ever seen in my life. He’s all ego and very little common sense. I work with another one who has no initive. These are the kind of people that are getting promoted even with bad paper work on them. If you have a good PFT/CFT, done some PME that no one really does any way and look sexy in your promotion picture, you will get promoted. I’ve known some terds that have made rank that way. This is because the promotion boards are selecting people for too much of the wrong reasons.
