It is the Marine Corps.  You should be PROUD that your son would choose this path of selfless service to our Country.  Our Country needs leaders of this caliber.

The president of the United States is not a king.

We need great sons like yours to protect our nation and our freedom.  It is not about who is CIC, but more about the men he serves with and the nation he gets to protect!

PS- I served all 6 years under Klinton and did stupid BS political missions for his admininstration, BUT I wouldn't change it for the world!  I loved every moment of my experience.

This country will need him more now than ever.

Some tough and dangerous times are ahead for all us.  Our political leadership at the top is inexperienced and guided by utopian ideals that are disconnected with the real world.   It will take good men, hard men, and true Patriots to make up for the deep cuts in military spending and poor decisions regarding strategy to keep Americans safe and save lives.  As someone who served throughout the Clinton Era I can tell you that had it not been for our brave service men and women this nation would have experienced far greater loss.


Your son will be on the wall between us and the barbarians. He's a HERO and you should be damn proud of him.

Well, I served under Carter & his gutting of our military. Your son will be just fine, the Corps has been handed the shit end of a stick under virtually every president, not just the bad ones, IMO.

My son went to PI this past year and is doing well.  However one snag is that they are holding his $5K bonus due to his not signing the right form.  I am waiting to find out what the deal is with that before I start making some calls.

It is all about your country and your buds though.  I served in the cold war years myself.

Think of it this way. If he enlists sometime next year, he'll still be in the Marine's when Obama is gone in 4 years.

I realized a while back that if you want to fight for freedom, that fight isn't overseas.  The direct threat to freedom resides in Washington, DC in all branches of government.  And when you consider joining up with the Marine Corps, those folks will be your new bosses.

I realized this right before I almost signed up for the Corps, and it turned my energy in another direction.

For better or for worse, who knows...

I wish your son luck, AuMiner.
