Trying to take terminal

I’ve been in the Marines for over 5 years, 4 of those in the ‘fleet’, and did 3 deployments, 2 for the squadron I’m currently in. This week is suppose to be all about me checking out and getting ready to go on terminal in 4 days. Today my Ssgt tells me that terminal leave is a privilege not a guarantee (I know this already), and that he’s thinking about canceling my Terminal because I failed a room inspection I wasn’t even present for nor knew about. (Even then my room is always presentable, they failed me on dust and carpet not vacuumed). And he tells me a piece of shit that has never cared, nor will start to care so he’s well in his right to cancel my terminal. Yet… I went out of my way to get a collateral billet to help our work center out, trained younger Marines to be better at their job, unlike other NCOs who sit on their ass and do nothing, and back in 2010 I go bumped to another squadron to go on a MEU, and once it was done I came back to this squadron because our work center was hurting for collateral billets, and to ice the cake… I extended my contract 4 months to make this last deployment, so my other collateral billet buddies wouldn’t be over stressed and I could help out, because those are the few that I consider my brothers in this squadron. Yet, I’m a piece of shit? Who has never cared? I give this squadron over 3 years of my time, and a 4 month extention… and it can’t even give me 30 days of terminal leave… are you fucking kidding me.

    Look him in the eye and ask him if he really feels dust is worth 30 days of your life. Not sure what this SSgts job is but they usually dont have that kind of power to cancel terminal leave. I know when I received leave requests even if I disapproved of them I still had to foreword them on. The CO always had the final say. Not sure about about terminal. Can remember what i had to go through for that.

    Check it out I am in the same timeframe(ish), I leaped over all my local command just get your separations worksheet turned in and signed by higher command. My MSgt is a doosh so I had our boot Lt sign then went straight to my 1st sgt and CO both were just like “whats this” I said “EAS paperwork” they signed retardedly and bam terminal approved, check out sheet is done and now as soon as that date hits I just leave don’t give a fuck if they have me on duty or any other retarded shit because I will have my DD2fuckin14

    He doesn’t even possess the authority to terminate your leave. It’s the COs call. Typical confussion of his authority as to the power he “really” has.- coming from a SNCO

    Your ssgt is a retard, he can’t canc’d ur terminal leave and he can actually get in trouble for trying to do that, it ultimatly is up to your co, your ssgt can recommend you not to have terminal leave but the decision is up to your co.
