LCpl of Marines

I have been completely consumed by rage. Everyday it's the same fucking routine that consists of waking up at ungodly hours (usually between 0300 to 0500) to first wait for roughly an hour or so until someone "in charge" shows up and then run for excessive periods of time, and sometimes with random shit, like 80 lbs packs for example. People all around go down, get hurt, and no one "in charge" seems to give a fuck. Anyone seriously injured is looked at as weak, or just hamming it up. It doesn't matter if they're in a cast, or have received serious mortal wounds, they are looked at as "soft" and often suffer constant ridicule and undesirable duties or menial tasks because of it like sitting for hours on end sorting through trash to find recyclables or cleaning out rest room facilities. After said running is completed, we are given roughly 30 minutes to go clean and eat before having to show up to work, where we will stand in a formation for another hour or so before someone "in charge" shows up. Mind you, we lived in cramped rooms roughly 3 or 4 to a room, and are expected to maintain our living quarters is as if it were a museum. So that's 30 minutes for 3 men to shower, ensure the room is in good order, and attempt to get to the mess hall to eat, presuming the line permits it, as everyone eats at said mess hall because we have had money taken out of our pay to eat there. Needless to say people seldom have time to eat there because it's a race between you and your roommates and about 90 other people or so from you platoon who are trying to meet the same deadlines racing you. You know what, fuck this, I could go on bitching but at the rate I'm at now it would take a solid hour or so to finish griping about all the injustices that have fallen upon myself and my fellow Marines. An hour which I don't have because I have to go to seep at a half way decent hour so I can begin the same vicious cycle. In summation though, fuck the military.

Well, you can always quit. But you and I both know that if you make it through this, you will be among the most solid and strongest individuals around--physically and emotionally.

You must be a grunt. Besides dumb , you are a little bitch

By anonymous at 30,Apr,11 11:18

Dude, just fucking quit.

Imagine if you were taken hostage by pirates or terrorist.

Why bother coming over here to insult someone?
Just Shut. The. Fuck. Up.

By anonymous at 01,May,11 13:21

Damn, that does suck. I can't imagine someone telling me when to eat, sleep, shower, etc. I feel for ya' man.

Noone forced you to join the military. You should of joined the Air Force if the Marines are too hardcore for you. I joined the USAF and became a fine computer operator. I served over 7 years and got out at E-5 and had my own house 30 miles off base, not married, and in a European country. I went to college and got a cushy government job starting at GS-09. This is coming from a guy who would almost fail gym class every year in High School.
