    Rant Alert:

    Ok, so I need something from back home and have my mom overnight it to me to my address aka the company I am in since that's how I recieve mail. Anyways this was 3 days ago. I go up to battalion and tell them I am expecting an overnight package. Well apparently they (the mail clerk) goes somewhere to pick up the mail but he hasn't for the past two days. I am seriously very very frustrated about this and informed my chain of command up to E-8 with no results since they basically did not give a fuck. What can I do? Is this something IG would handle because honestly shit has been so fucked up since I've returned (aka trashed laundryroom, dirty barracks, etc...). I really don't want to be 'that guy' causing problems but being treated like this is ridiculous and I am tired of it. Iraq was better then this...

    Take charge and get the facilities taken care of. No one else can take care of business quicker than the first person to find it.

    As for the mail stuff, upchannel until someone cares. Or even better, call the shirt.

    I'm going to have to agree (maybe not IG because I'm not sure they are the same in the Marines as in the Army) but here's the thing: Mail is a federal offense and if you're not doing your job, you're violating federal laws and someone has to be taking this seriously - so I recommend finding the senior postal officer on base or the IG as appropriate.
