Who am I, but another troop?

I’m a lance corporal in the Marines and in my btry there are a lot of lances. Well we learned that next month a few are going to be promoted to Cpl’s or corporals.

I’m a lance corporal in the Marines and in my btry there are a lot of lances. Well we learned that next month a few are going to be promoted to Cpl’s or corporals. These are Marines who are lazy, do drugs but don’t get caught, get drunk on a daily basis, and just do not care. Once they become NCO’s this will just give them more of an excuse to make Lances do everything because they are too lazy to do it. It seems that picking up NCO is just a way of not doing anything. Yet the Marine Corps fails to realize that these are the true turds, not the Lance who is working hard and doing everything right but gets yelled at because he didn’t hear his NCO say something and asks him to repeat himself. I joined thinking everything and everyone were equal, but that’s just not the case. And now some of the worst Lances are going to be picking up and that’s just gonna add on to the bullshittery that I see everyday. But who am I, but another troop?…
