    Hi, sorry I missed this apparently I was week 2 and I kind of dissapeared for a little while...

    Let me start off by telling you a few details about what I do and my branch and how my average days are... then I will extend into further details of my experience with the service and my outlook upon it.

    Branch: USMC
    Rank: LCpl \ E-3
    My MOS: 0656 - Tactical Data Network Specialist

    Now, my typical day at work consists of waking up at around 0500 or so Monday through Friday and going in to either A) PT or B) Just work. It always starts with a formation around 0630 for accountability and the likes... and then I go into my office... which is in our Battalion CP. Now, basically what I do there is either surf the internet(Offtopic, and what I'm doing right now) or answer the phone and help anyone in my battalion with any computer related issues. Let's see today for instance I had a call from our Supply guys about a line they had that wasn't working... basic shit like that... uh My overall experience with the Marine Corps and the military in general has been completely negative... aside from the fact that I don't do drugs anymore... and I probably would have wasted my life away and failed college... but other than those minute details I hate the military and the Marine Corps especially. I hate almost the idea of the Marine Corps and how it runs... and I've been in long enough to know how it runs and it annoys the shit out of me. I'm also in a deployable unit and have been to Iraq, which isn't as bad as most would think but isn't exactly a picnic... Now, I know what you are all thinking... holy shit you have it so easy blah blah blah but I really don't... being a LCpl in a world ruled by idiotic Staff NCO's is not easy nor fun. I feel the Marine Corps has stripped all the freedoms I once enjoyed and I feel like I'm constantly being watched and that annoys me... I have to live in a place I don't want to live in... I have to eat at a place I don't want to eat at... and I have to do a job I hate and don't want to do... if I were a civilian none of the above would be true. And as for relationships... this is one of my biggest hits on the military... and I have a thoery on why so many military people get married and divorce... let me tell you I am in a relationship with a girl that is 3 states away (Texas) which is a 21 hour drive straight... that I never get to see... so many people get married because they want to live with their SO... now this makes a lot of people rush into something that they aren't ready for... I've seen it happen... and is a huge reason as well why I hate the military... I just wish I knew what the hell I was getting myself into when I signed that contract almost 3 years ago... I can honestly say I fucking hate my life and would rather be homeless somewhere rotting to death then be here serving my great nation.

    I hope that didn't offend anyone... and I'm not an Anti-American or anything like that... so... flame on flamers.

    hooah marine corp!

    In all seriousness though, it sucks you are not happy right now. Just think, when you get out, you will be disciplined and more responsible. One day you will look back on your military service, and think "Oh it wasn't that bad, and it did make me grow up and learn a thing or two".

    Well maybe not in so many words, but I think you know what I mean.

    Well... yea of course it made me grow up... it consumed 4 years of my young adulthood... in the period of time when almost 98% of us "grow-up" in or out of the military.

    you said so yourself, you did drugs, and probably would have failed out of college. It made you more mature is what I am trying to say. At least I hope it did.

    It will be interesting to find out what you are complaining about 4 years after you leave the service. My guess is the "the world is against me and my life sucks" feeling will follow you until you learn to rise above it.

    Just my $0.02 USD. :dunno:

    I am an ex-Soldier of HM forces and I have struggled to find work since leaving, at no cost shall I ever return but yet feel as if it is one thing I am better than most at.
    I shall endeavor to find a way of maintaining my bills, come beg borrow steal but by no ends shall I ever kill a man that I may profit.

    Where in England do you live? I know some areas of the country are better off economy-wise than others.

    killgunner, i'm sure you probably counting the days until you EAS, but mabye you should consider lat moving into another MOS that you find more interesting or even trying to go on a B billet assignment like MSG Duty which I think would be pretty exciting.

    I don't want to LAT move... and I don't have an attitude that the world is against me... I just hate the Marine Corps... no one is trying to get me... I just don't want to be a part of it anymore... I've never even been in trouble in the Marine Corps. It isn't for everyone and I'm everyone.
