Why Marine veterans have a hard time getting a job…

crew 2 Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

While I have little problem believing that some Marines may be thinking what transpires below; it is doubtful it would ever be said.


The Job Interview. 

Marines are taught RESPECT and they are not STUPID,  unlike many of their civilian congressional members who are.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Personnel Manager: “What is your greatest weakness ?”

Old Marine: “Honesty”

Personnel Manager: “I don’t think honesty is a weakness !”

Old Marine: “I don’t give a shit what you think”

  1. A Marine, never forgets the 11th General Order.

    • Indeed Brittius:

      The 11 General Orders of a Sentry as required in Marine Corps Boot Camp (and after, when performing sentry duty).

      This is slightly different than the Navy version(mostly because ranks and titles differ between the Navy and USMC), and a whole lot different than the Army Version.

      1. Take charge of this post and all government property in view.

      2. Walk my post in a military manner, keeping always on the alert and observing everything that takes place within sight or hearing.

      3. Report all violations of orders I am instructed to enforce.

      4. To repeat all calls [from posts]more distant from the guardhouse than my own.

      5. Quit my post only when properly relieved.

      6. To receive, obey, and pass on to the sentry who relieves me, all orders from the Commanding Officer, Officer of the Day, Officers, and Non-Commissioned Officers of the guard only.

      7. Talk to no one except in the line of duty.

      8. Give the alarm in case of fire or disorder.

      9. To call the Corporal of the Guard in any case not covered by instructions.

      10. Salute all officers and all colors and standards not cased.

      11. Be especially watchful at night and during the time for challenging, to challenge all persons on or near my post, and to allow no one to pass without proper authority

  2. I sent you an email about this. I printed it on my blog for those wanting to know. The 11th General Order was stated because it involves a Challenge.

  3. We can trust the “crusty old guys”!!
