    The United State Marine Corps' job is to DO WHAT THEY ARE TOLD by their civilian leadership. Not comment publicly about public policy, nor attempt to make or influence public policy. They are to follow orders. That's it. Just like the rest of the military.

    Hopefully you're not a typical example of Marines. I know several and until you began posting, I had a much higher view of their intelligence

    Which points out how RARE it is for a marine COMMANDANT to speak out like this.

    We ain't talking about some "lefty politician" here junior

    My brother in law feels differently. He is in the Air Force as a civilian now. He preps planes at a base in New Jersey. He is aging and will be retiring. Always as either active duty or civilian in the back providing supplies or equipment. And his views of marines in the front are that they move up in rank faster because of their branch. Do you believe that?
