The Marine Corp has given me something to live by everyday HONOR, COURAGE, COMMITMENT
Pros: Changed my whole perspective on Life, Learned job traits and job had job experiences i can use for the rest of my life
Cons: Always away from family, Always on the move
The Marine Corp taught me the meaning of discipline, and the importance discipline has in a job setting. The Marines showed me how a proper chain of command is suppose to work, and how orders are suppose to be executed. While in the Marine Corps I learned how to take charge, not only take charge take in the most difficult or stressful situations, while maintaining calm and always completing the task at hand. I served 2 tours in Afghanistan while in the Marine Corps so my time was mostly split between Garrison, and in Afghanistan. A typical day in Garrison or at Camp Lejuene, NC would start with me conducting a 45 min PT session with my platoon which usually consisted of anywhere between 15-25 Marines. After PT session I would report to the Motor Pool , and check for any orders or routes that would need to be executed for the day. After breaking my platoon from formation I would help conduct company manifest , and check the morning PMCs executed by my junior marines. The day would consist of whatever orders where passed down. The most enjoyable part of my job was being in a position where I knew I was making a difference. Everyday I would learn knew things, and pass on knowledge. The hardest part of my job was having to leave my family and friends for months at a time.
