• Marine Corps: No Special Treatment For Chicks

    WARNING! Video is full of swearing, racial slurs, and acts of violence. DO NOT WATCH IF YOU ARE A POLITICALLY CORRECT PUSSY!

    From Full Metal Jacket via Gunnery Sargent Hartman:

    “My orders are to weed out all non-hackers who not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Corps. Do you maggots understand that?”

    The movie Full Metal Jacket is a classic Vietnam war film that shows the discipline and standards required of all would-be Marines.

    In the real world, the Marine Corps has decided that to be in a combat role, a uniform set of standards applies all soldiers.

    It doesn’t matter what “letter” you identify with…Male or Female, Hetero or LGBT. It doesn’t matter what color you are…white, black, red, yellow, or green you have to pass the tests to be a Marine.

    They are living up to one of their mottos…Earned. Never Given.

    Last December the controversial decision was  made to allow women in combat roles. Sparking a debate about if the standards will be lower for the ladies.

    From Marine Corps Times:

    “The Secretary of Defense announced the opening of all occupations and units to all service members and published his guidance in a Dec. 3, 2015, memo to the secretaries of the military departments,”

    The Marine Corps will not lower physical standards to allow women to join combat jobs, such as infantry, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus vowed Tuesday.

    “I will never lower standards,” Mabus told Marines and sailors at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California. “Let me repeat that: Standards will not be lowered for any group! Standards may be changed as circumstances in the world change, but they’ll be changed for everybody.”

    After speaking about the Marine Corps’ plan to integrate women into military occupational specialties that had been restricted to men, one Marine asked if female Marines would need to pass the same advanced courses as men to join the infantry.

    “Same standards; doesn’t matter,” Mabus replied. “I mean, they’re Marines.”

    It’s nice to see the Corps maintaining their pride. Equal standards will give the women who make it the same pride it gives a man.

    Another of the Marine Corps mottoes is, The Few, The Proud, The Marines.

    That is true because it is only a FEW who have the moxie to make it as a Marine.

    Oorah! Thank you for your service.
