I can imagine why many Marines would want to commit suicide. Simply put, the Marine Corps life sucks donkey balls. It’s fucking depressing. It’s lonely, aggravating and boring. Any attempt at making any romantic relationships usually end in failure due to the Marines making you move around a lot causing you to see your significant other a lot less. There’s usually nothing to do in the Barracks except drink, use the internet, get a new tattoo and play video games.
In my old unit, everyone jokes about suicide all the time. In fact, this comic was inspired by a fellow Marine who told me how he was going to commit suicide if he were to do it. But really, he had no real reason to. If he was feeling down, he’d go out with some buddies and get plastered drunk out of town. This isn’t the best solution to combat suicide but I guess it’s better than nothing.
“What gets me through the Marine Corps is the next payday and beer.”
I don’t think too many Marines talk about needing help because they’re afraid of their command coming down hard on them. I sure as hell didn’t trust my command after the things they did. Why the hell would I want to talk to them?

If you’re in the Corps, I’m sure you’ve thought about suicide whenever you field day but suicide not worth it. Suicide is a permanent fix to a temporary problem. Get out of the Corps and live your life. Life is truly better outside of the Corps. 4 years isn’t that long. Just take it one day at a time. Payday to payday. Weekend alcohol binge to weekend alcohol binge.

For those who are about to get out, don’t re-enlist. If you re-enlist thinking that you’re going to be able to ride that sweet gravy train forever, you must be crazy.
My buddy re-enlisted with an incentive that he move to a recon unit. He thought it was going to be better but it wasn’t. Now he has even less time to see his family. He is not going to re-enlist after the end of his second term. Even the recon Marines want to join the Army Special Forces.
The gravy train is only a short ride that has to stop. When it stops, it stops abruptly. Then you’re going to have to face years of Marine Corps bullshit again.
Resist the temptation.

I challenge the Commandant of the Marine Corps to do a survey of quality of life amongst junior enlisted Marines. I've been with four different units, and I've never seen morale so low and the
vast amount of depression is mind blowing. Marines don't even like the Marine Corps. A branch with so much "pride" and "honor" is really just a crock of shit. The ones that stay in only do it because they know they couldnt make it in the real world, and they wouldn't be able to live with themselves not being able to make subordinates lives a living hell. Barracks life is the most depressing thing I've ever seen. I compare it to watching a sad infomercial on TV, where you just want to donate money to make their lives better. Here's another crock of shit... You have 23 year old boot officers that haven't done anything for the Marine Corps except have it pay for their college education get to live out in town and non-commissioned officers that have done multiple deployments and bust their asses all day everyday live in the barracks. What does that tell you about the Corps?

Frankly, if the marine corps wants to be known as a safe haven for children who can’t control their adolescent impulses, who lack any semblance of self-control, self-restraint, or self-discipline, and who joined because they couldn’t make it anywhere else, then the marine corps is doing just fine. But if the marine corps wants to be known as an elite and highly professional fighting force, then it has a long way to go.

Straight up i'm not racist so i'm just going to say the facts. The majority ethnicity in the upper part of the rank structure runs shit for that race unless their white it seems to be like this in every unit. I saw some one get 3 DUI's and has yet to loses his rank or pay because hes black and so is the Sgtmaj who preached to the B.C. why he should not be maxed out. That is absolutely ludicrous as opposed to a Marine I know who is on point knows his job, but theirs a problem he is white and slightly older then his whole chain of command. He got a hickey once form his wife, his fucking wife and three DUI fuck wrights him up for a 6105 which is one step below a NJP, but its okay 2 of his boots also black picked up CPL before he did but his white boot also non rec'd constantly just like him. Another example another Ssgt who was in his chain of command also black got forced out with a Honorable discharge and 100 K for a DUI hit and run resisting arrest criminal speeding also he got NJP'd but didn't losse rank just pay but who gives a fuck he got 100 K. The bullshit clicks and racism is destroying the Marine Corps and people that decided to join at 17 and u got 21 year old Sgts telling 27 year old Cpls how to live their life and the constant alcoholism and immaturity is so fucked. The best part is the good Marines and smart once with common sense get out because they see how fucked the system is leaving way for all the retards to re-enlist and poison the Corps till its a Disease which it is now and slowly dies and just hate fucks every one else that's left. In the Marine Corps the rules are made up and the points for promotion don't matter. Its whose Dick your willing to suck that is it. ****Please post your stories if you have had similar experiences****

One of my friends is joining the marine corps. His recruiter has already convinced him how "Amazing" they are. He truly believes that every marine is a badass and they are all better than anyone else. It would be fucking hilarious if it wasn't so sad
