You are not, and never have been a US Marine despite your claim. No Marine refers to themselves or other Marines as 'ex'. Busted.

First of all, get your terms correct. Bootcamp is a absolute no shit thing on the island. Please come visit and observe for yourself. It isnt cruelty it is reality. It is their job to lead these young men and guide them into their chosen life paths of MARINES, not soldiers. The Marine Corp is the nations first to fight. They arent here to be be made civilized they are here to become United States Marines, and better citizens. It is unfortunate that they have passed during training but it is the way the cookie crumbles.

Parris Island is a joke anymore anyways. Drill instructors are dumb as hell for one, all they can say is daggon this and daggon that....I went to parris island and was discharged on a medical on training day 50 thank god because the dumbasses i went with, I would never be able to put my life in their hands. They let anyone and everyone in the marines. Half the dumbasses couldn't even read because they are strait out of the ghetto or they are hicks that don't know left from right. It's rediculous and anybody with a head on their shoulders could tell you that 95% of the recruits in parris island are dumbasses along with the daggon drill instructors.
Obviously not anyone, because you were discharged before you even went to crucible. Stop being spiteful and move on with your life.

My son has been at Parris island for just over a week, I am devastated . I don't want a marine, the thought makes me sick. After reading all the post from marines or their girlfriends(wife's) I'm embarrassed to think my son wanted to be a part of this. As far as I'm concerned he has ruined his life. He was incouraged by a jerky cousin that's reply to me was" go suck a big fat baby dick" what a fine person that marine is. If my son behaves like this after 'training' you can keep him. My father is a real man, provides for his family, loves his wife and children, serves in his church, respects women and he didn't have to be a marine or any other service man to do it, I was a proud mother when Jeremiah was in college and on the deans list, I have no idea how this could have happened. You stole a good kid and now your going to turn him into a monster

My brother died at Parris Island in 1992. His body wasn't recovered for almost a year (10 months) and was so badly decomposed that there was no way to confirm cause of death. His body was found by a local fisherman on the banks of one of the rivers so his cause of death was simply put as drowning. My family has never had the closure of finding out what really happened to him and how he ended up dead in the river. He was a good recruit and loved the training he was getting. He was very fit and healthy without any physical handicaps. I even received a letter in the mail a few days after his disappearence stating that he was very excited about his upcoming graduation. I want to know what happened to my brother!!!!! But, sadly, I know that I never will.
I graduated from training in 1992 from Paris Island SC, platoon 1126, 1st BN. I remember this and are very sorry for your loss. The only story I remember going around was that one of the recruits bodies was recovered in the marsh/swap that surrounds the base by a fisherman.

Well my fiancee just left for there and hes hasent been there for 2 weeks yet and if i find out he died im gonna go crazy people need to learn you cant be hard on young kids like thatits freaking stupid i dont even know anymore
Dear heart----------
I was there in 1965, we had a recruit drown during the swimming training. These are no longer young kids, when their feet hit the yellow foot steps two thing happen immediately, like it or not. The first is they are no longer yong kids, there are 'recruits', or stated more simply, the lowest form of life in the universe. They are there by choice. Secondly, they are immediately property of the Marine Corps. They are told when to pee, poop, eat, sleep, shave, and in some cases, blink. It is tough because without going into detail, battlefield conditions, at BEST, are tough. You lern the limits you thought you had are no longer a reality, that you no longer care about self, you care about unit, Corps and each other above all else.
It ain't easy for a reason. Be proud of your MAN for going the hard road!

Other armed forces do it and in less time? There graduates are not Marines, there is your difference. There is no secret Marine training is the most difficult in the department of defense. I could teach an air force guy how to sit in a chair in a 6 week period. That is how long there training is. You rise and sleep until the blanket of protection they provide and then question the manner in which they provide it. That is a disgrace in my opinion.

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? Listen, the Corps has been making Marines for over 200 years and the Corps will continue to do so after you are long gone. What a bunch of liberal bullcrap. "Civlized and Positive?" ARE YOU FREAKING HIGH? Someone obviously dropped you on your liberal head. Leave that nonsense for the Army, CHAirForce and Navy. Leave the DevilDogs be. Another thing, it is not belittling and there are women as well. It is called "discipline" and "order". You make me freaking SICK!!!!

Wow. What a poor pitiful, pathetic excuse of a parent you are. Let me tell you something about Marine wives and GF's: A good majority of them are lying pieces of dog crap. They take away from the morale of the unit and will bring a Marine down quicker than this jerky cousin can say "go suck a big fat baby dick" (which you have no obvious problem saying yourself, which I find hypocritical and hilarious). No one forced your son to sign that paper. I'm sure he was just trying to get away from a liberal fucktard for a parent. By the way, I am a WOMAN Marine, so save your nonsense for another liberal who will stroke your hair and tell you it's okay. I would be ashamed to have you as a mother. BITCH!

There is no such thing as an "x Marine". EVERY Marine knows that.
