I'm missing the gun club....
After this semester, I will have 2 semesters left before I graduate and am considering going back in as an Officer. I tend to think I was a pretty good Marine with a 4.8/4.7 pro cons for my average time in service. I was appointed to squad leader (a little past my 2nd year mark and a corporal over a sergeant) during my units time going through idf counter-terroism school in israel at the discretion of the colonel in charge of the Duvdevan. That will forever be the highlight being reckognized (sp) by someone of that stature.
My question is, I've been out for over 5 years, how much has the Corps changed? A lot of my friends got out after our first 4 years as we were sick of being deployed. During my 4 years, I was awarded 4 sea service deployment ribbons, not including the one month here and there every so often as they weren't 90 days or longer. The ones that did re-enlisted are just sticking around now to get to retirement or will be getting out after 12 years because they are tired of the bs. I would more than likely choose to ground and pick 0302 as my mos after ocs. I am now married with a daughter who just turned 2 so my priorities have changed since my last go around. I just don't want to go through life always saying I wish I had, but if the marines are still heading in the same direction they were when I got out in 06 than I dont think i will really miss it. Same direction being soft and Marines getting really lazy as a whole. It seemed like more fat bodies and always getting their *** kicked during pt and never putting forth the extra effort to improve weak areas.
