Motivated men & women working together, each holding a piece of the puzzle in order to see the big picture.
Pros: brotherhood, experience you can't get anywhere else
Cons: frequent hiccups during field excercise training
A typical day at work would be, waking up at 0530 to PT (physical training), by either running up a hill or going to the gym for an hour or two. Afterwards, everyone is given 15 minutes to head back to their rooms and shower, and head down to company office for personnel accountability. Occasionally, the company would perform a field exercise training that would last as little as 3 days or as long as 45 days out in the desert. The marine Corps has taught me how to take action and become a leader, It has also taught me how to deal with stress, and also work under pressure. Management is broken down into a chain of command, so essentially every marine is considered a leader and encourage to settle disputes and the lowest level before going higher. The marines and sailors that I've had the pleasure working with are driven by pride for their country and branch of service, this holds especially true during my tour in Afghanistan, in which many wore the American patch on their flak jackets, which was discourage due to possibility of offending locals. My most enjoyable moments during my time in the Marine Corps has to be the bonds that I have build with other marines and sailors, that turned the most repetitive, physically/mentally exhausting work into something fun.
