A Birthday Rant to My Brothers

Created on Wednesday, 09 November 2011

The Few. The Proud. Strip down to your skivvies, stand in front of a full length mirror and perform your own hygiene inspection. Are you proud?

If you're humping with your own "Heavy Section" maybe you've been at ease for too long. Or do you have some excuse, like a "No PT chit?"

United States Marine. It's a title that stays with you for life once you EARN it. And earning it ain't easy. Yet I'm seeing too many that have let some of the rewards go U.A. I'm talking about seeing able bodies in full civilian decoration (cap, t-shirt, tattoo, bumper stickers, decals, and pins) proudly displaying proof that they served, but looking like they'd collapse a half mile into a three mile run. Lately I've seen enough to form an entire platoon of run drops.

Where's the discipline? Do you need someone telling you to fall in for PT? Did you forget all that DRILL? You know what you need to do. Put down the pogey bait and start doing those push aways!

You may no longer think you need to be a force in readiness, but what if you do? You can't call on a PFC to come do the hard work for you anymore. You spent years keeping your sh*t together to not only save your ass but also your buddies' who were also fit enough to save themselves as well as yours. But now you're the NCOIC. It could be up to you to save yourself and your family. Can you do it?


You proudly marched across that parade deck after earning the title and the uniform that goes with it. For those of you stretching that USMC t-shirt over an un-sat gut take that shirt OFF and get your ass on the quarter deck!

No apologies.
Semper Fi!

Hey Mike! Happy Birthday to you too brother. I figured you'd still be one of The Few that still PT's.
I know what you mean about having to work so much harder, nature's working against us.
Thanks for commenting and you have an awesome day too.
Semper Fi
