Marines are taught from day one to take responsibility for their actions.

If there is anything that I learned in Vietnam was that when the "sh-t hits the fan" there is nothing that stands between Marines in action.
Shirtless Marines during World War 2
A tall, muscular Staff sergeant of Marines welcomed us to Quantico on behalf of the President of the United States, the Secretary of the Navy, the Commandant of the Marine Corps, and the remainder of the chain of command. his monologue was nearly identical to what all of us ECP's heard at our respective recruit depots.
Our deuce gear was muffled, and there were no man-made sounds coming from either side of the other than an occasional gasp, and the incessant "schloop" of Marines pulling their feet out of the muck.
There were a total of Twenty Medal of Honor Winners at Guadalcanal, twelve of those were Marines and Marine Corpsmen.
The rest of us are just on "in-active duty" All of you returning Marines, THANKS you all have done us proud!
All of the readers are correct that Marines do not steal.
Anyway, the point of this email is that the last 2 Marines we lost in VietNam were MSG's.
As an African-American Marine stationed with the 2nd Bn, 3rd Mar Regt on Okinawa, (1963) I had an experience during which I was attacked by three White Marines outside the Enlisted Club on Camp Swab; The Sergeant and two Lance Corporals were Marines and members of a White Supremacy group that is considered an unacceptable organization according to Federal Law and the Marine Corps.
As one of my DI's told us in June of '84: Marines never lie, Marines never cheat and Marines NEVER Steal.
Marines never lie, they bend the truth! Marines never cheat, they cause the odds to be more in their favor.
I have been reading excerpts of many fellow Marines and their experiences at Parris Island.
Not much you can do . That's when you understand what getting lucky was all about which I was more times than you can count as the case with so many thousands of Marines.
I had the privilege to serve with 3rd Tracs at Camp Del Mar. Amtrackers are Marines of the highest caliber.
I understand the hard stance that may exist in your case since it is your son, but in my own thoughts, I DO NOT like when Marines fail out, and then go home boasting they are Marines, holding back the secret that they actually failed.
We as Marines all walk real close to the line.
We as Marines all know where that line is and the consequences of crossing it.
I feel that when you choose pot over your fellow Marines and your duty, you are giving up the right to call yourself a Marine.
