Ex-Marines say, “Don’t join the Marines”
A running discussion at The Thinking Housewife on the Marines. A reader, who is an immigrant, speaks of his desire to join the Marines in order to become a part of America and find direction and meaning in his life. An ex-Marine tells him, “Don’t join the Marines,” they’ve lost their former military traditions and have been taken over by PC, feminism, and now homosexualism. Further comments are made by readers, including former Marine pilot Howard Sutherland, who offers a concise history of the “inclusion”-driven changes in the armed services since the 1970s, and agrees that one should not join the Marines today.
