    Being an infantry unit leader in the Marine Corps there is guarantee that a person will be impacted by armed conflict in some nature or another.

    During my time in the Marine Corps, I have noticed that Marines have lacked in the understanding of close order drill and formations. We conduct these formations by utilizing close order drill to ensure Marines are always ready for any event. Due to Marines continually questioning, why do we have formations for accountability, for promotions, and uniform inspections. Formations have and always will be a part of the Marine Corps traditions. We as small unit leaders utilize the conduct of…

    This poster, promoting the The Civilian Conservation Corps, demonstrates the patriarchal views of Canadian society during this time period.

The art, depicting a young man holding an axe indicates the great value placed upon unskilled manual labour by the government. This poster is an example of bias in the way that it fails to mention the negative…

    Advocate for over 17 years. I say that not to admit guilt but state pride in my duties and profession. Despite the well-worn clichés and easy cynicism about lawyers, I am an unrepentant leader of Marines who questions the Marine Corps approach to character development in our Corps and the oft mere reliance on the “Judge” to teach “ethics” to our Marines. We, as leaders, need to do more to make sure the character that takes command in moments of crucial choices is well-developed in our Marines…

    to look into them, I chose the Marine Corps strictly because it was widely regarded as the hardest branch and I thought if I could make through that, then I could make any challenge. The physical fitness was the biggest challenge I had to face as I continued to fall out of runs and scoring 3rd class PFT's. I managed to graduate boot camp and earn the title of marine, and then it dawned on me all of the things…

    I want to become a Marine Corps Officer because I believe it takes something else, something great to lead the best and most aggressive fighting force in the world. Marine Corps Officers are the epitome of a great Marine and have to have certain personality traits that distinguish themselves from others and label them as leaders. My father raised me with the mentality that ideals such as integrity and sacrifice are more important in a man than materialistic objects and bad morals. Growing up, I…

    Four years ago I was introduced and convinced to join a program called MCJROTC by my brother. MCJROTC (Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) is a program that is meant to teach and instill discipline, responsibility, and leadership traits in a student. I successfully joined this discourse community by showing the knowledge that I have obtained from the program, dealing with the emotions of my cadets (proper term for a student in the program), and achieving my credibility by ranking…
