Fleet Marine Life #98 – Base Mail

2011-10-09-fleetmarinelife98 - Base Mail

I’ve always wondered why my mail would take so long to reach me in Camp Pendleton. In the civilian world, I had a 60 lb package send from California and reach the other side of the USA within 2 weeks. However, whenever I’m on a Marine Corps Base, my mail would take several months to reach me.

So I guess that somewhere down the line that the Marine Corps has something to do with my mail being delivered at the speed of bureaucracy.

One of the many reasons that I’m glad that I’m out of the Corps.

Having shit lost in the mail since 1775.
