Response to erpowers (Reply #15)

18. I spent three years in the Marines.


Their training is not dissimilar from the Army's, the Marines are just more intense; the training is more physically and mentally challenging. Marines are not taught "to view other human beings as nothing more than things to be attacked and conquered". There's a great deal of emphasis put on honor, loyalty and comradery with your fellow Marines. The OP included a link to the Marine Corps Times, read that article to understand just how shaken the Corps is by this scandal.

And what have you heard about Mattis?
