The Boys discuss how much Gunner HATED recruiting duty in Sacramento, CA (Mac’s hometown) and that all other virtues pale in significance to discipline for a Marine.
MAJGEN PAUL KENNEDY, Commanding General of Marine Corps Recruiting Command joined us to discuss his career, changes in how the Marine Corps recruits women, gender and recruit training as well has online behavior.
A great, candid interview where the terms “leadership” and “discipline” surface in every aspect of the interview.
DON’T MISS THIS
Brigadier General Dave Furness, USMC, joined ALL MARINE RADIO for a blunt one-hour and forty-five minute interview. Here’s what was covered:
(1) Online behavior for Marines, the UCMJ and 1st and 4th Amendment rights
(2) The marines united investigation
(3) Can the Marine Corps monitor the internet for such behavior or is it an “unreasonable search”?
(4) Recruit Training: where is the Marine Corps relative to gender integration at MCRD?
(5) Recruiting females “more suited” for the Marine Corps and “poolee standards” for females
(6) Can the “OCS” model (female platoons in male companies) work for all recruits at Parris Island?
(7) DISCIPLINE. Privacy in the BEQ is an issue the Marine Corps struggles with; does living like civilians in a dormitory contribute to the feeling that Marines are still mostly civilians and therefore civilian behavioral standards apply?
A candid interview with the second Marine General Officer to speak at length on the issue.
The boys discuss how junior Marines Transition from Active Duty (not well) and Kate Germano’s positions on standards for female Marines and the Marine Corps moving to the “OCS Model” of greater gender integration in Recruit Training for female recruits.
