Seven days later I went to Martial arts Instructors course were I earned my brown belt with a tan tab. Once I completed MAI course, I then went to Charlie Company second platoon. Were I assumed the billet of squad leader for second squad and started preparing my marines for Afghanistan.
This test is also offered when you are in high school. The ASVAB is an entrance test to enlist in the US Military. The purpose of this test is to determine if you have the mental aptitude to enlist in the military branch of your choice, and second, the results help the services determine which military job you would fit well in (Sgt. Grove). The requirements needs to become a Marine are you must be at least 17 years or older, have proof of legal residency, take a physical examination, have a high school diploma, attended training at Parris Island or San Diego, and last but not least attend a marine combat training + military occupational specialty school (USMC).
It’s absolutely important for us to maintain full accountability in the Marine Corps because not only are we under-funded, which makes replacing lost gear a huge hassle, but it instills discipline in our Marines and helps them build a stronger character by maintaining full gear retention at all times. When a Marine keeps full accountability of issued gear, it illustrates to that Marine’s peers that the Marine is squared away. The more squared away the Marine is, the better off he/she will be in garrison and in country. When a Marine shows that he can take care of himself and keep full accountability of his issued gear then that Marine demonstrates the ability to take care of his other Marines as well look out for their well-being. When a Marine keeps full accountability of issued gear, then he/she will have fewer things to worry about and will be able to concentrate more on the mission that needs to be completed.
A few officers are chosen from the Naval Academies. New officers go threw an excruciating six month training course at Basic School located in Quantico, Virginia. (Marine Corps United States Heinl, Jr., R.

This training will be used to ensure personnel qualify on their assigned individual weapons. Key Tasks: • Assignment of range OIC and RSO • Identify Combat Lifesaver personnel • Ensure ammo detail is prepared with proper vehicles in order to draw from ASP • Perform BRM prior to zero
Another big takeaway was that despite the brutality and emotions of combat, a leader must remain calm, see the big picture, and anticipate the “next steps” for his unit and the enemy. Tom Hiebert: We Were Soldiers was published just as I was getting ready to take command. The timeless value of the book then, as it remains to me to this day, is in demonstrating to young leaders the value of setting and maintaining standards and discipline in training as these translate directly to success in combat. Also, LTG Moore compares and contrasts the effects in combat of good solid leadership (and, again, standards and discipline) with the lack thereof in the second part of his book concerning the exploits of McDade and 2-7 Cavalry at LZ [landing zone] Albany. I tried to carry these lessons with me everywhere as a company commander.
The rules and regulations that are set differ from each station. Some stations are stricter than others; the other officers and their relationship with each other are diverse. Some stations the officers have a closer relationship with one another meaning that if an officer was to make a mistake, it would have a huge impact on their superiors. “No matter what we back up our fellow officers when we need to but there is no looking the other way or letting one make a mistake and not take the fault for it,” said Deputy
If these were the options for mandated public services, all young people would contribute greatly to their countries while having a better sense of what is happening around them. One reason the United States military is so powerful and strong is because it is made up of volunteers. Every soldier fighting on the front lines is there because they volunteered and made a commitment to their country. If the people were forced to join the military, then the soldiers, as a whole, might not be as reliable or as strong because some soldiers might be unmotivated to fight. Despite the fact that the military is a magnificent spot for young people to learn discipline, some of them don't have the respect for the service the military provides.
The same thing applies for rewards two soldiers do the same thing an NCO can not give one of them a higher reward. There are three types of duties specified duties which are those related to jobs and positions, directed duties which are not specified as part of a job position or MOS or other directive, and implied duties which often support specified duties. A good leader executes the boss’s decisions with energy and enthusiasm; looking at their leader, soldiers will believe the leader thinks it’s absolutely the best possible solution. As a leader we must ensure that our soldiers clearly understand their responsibilities as members of the team and as representative of the Army. Responsibility is being accountable for what we do or fail to do.
The flag represents the soldiers that have fought at home and abroad to ensure that we retain the very freedoms that allow us to protest the wars that they are fighting. The flag represents all of our servicemen, not just the ones who are fighting to keep us safe today, but the heroes of WWI, WWII, Vietnam, Korea, The Revolutionary War and even the Civil War. All of these brave soldiers fought under one form of our nation’s
