Adapt and Overcome
Marines always find a way to accomplish the mission. Whether that’s taking down an entire village or cleaning out gutters.
Marines can handle anything.
Lot’s Of Individual Talent
One of the best parts about being in the Marines was being able to interact with people all over the US. Some people from different parts of the world.
You never know who you’ll run into or what strange talents they have.
Marines Can Squeeze Into Tight Spots
Whether it’s being packed in a C-130, bus, or a small room to get some sleep.
Marines will pile up and squeeze into any space.
Who Needs Promotions?
Getting promoted in the Marine Corps is borderline impossible. That’s why you see Lance Corporals doing the jobs of SGT’s and SSGT’s.
Marines Will PT Anywhere
Look I wasn’t that motivated when I was active, but don’t be surprised to see Marines in the Field lifting water jugs, doing pushups, running yelling obscene cadences and other absurd things to get their pump.
Marines Survive on Tobacco, Energy Drinks & Alcohol
Before I joined the Marines I didn’t drink or do anything crazy. After I was in for a few years I drank, smoked, dipped, and all sorts of crazy things that’s bad for your health.
It kept me going, especially while in combat.
Sometimes you have to stay up for days and only sleep for a couple hours. You would do anything to stay awake and keep your mind occupied.
