35. The Corps will survive this...


,,,but it will take a change in how the institution thinks of women.

As I said previously I'm on a Facebook page where the vast majority are young active duty Marines and veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. I'm constantly amazed, and encouraged for the future of this country, by what I read there. One of the things that astounded me was their nonchalance and acceptance of gay Marines. They don't have the same attitude about woman Marines, it is still a boys club. Gays can be one of the boys, but the women cannot be. That attitude is a reflection of the institution's attitude, and that attitude from the top down has to change for the Corps to recover from this.


I don't post much here at DU (2800 posts in 16 years lol) but I read it everyday. I've always enjoyed your posts, and missed you when you took a break. I'm glad you came back.
