That’s what we all want to do, don’t we? Stay at work for a few months and figure out the ins and outs of the company and it’s processes and expect to get something better. But how do you know that you’ve improved a whole lot? Never fear, Gunny is here.
So stop your frowning and grab your Browning! It’s time to lock n’ load!

When you’re given feedback, that generally means that you’ve improved but need more improvement. You might think how’s that possible but it’s true. I’ve seen it with my recruits in the past few decades and I can tell you one thing: If you’re good in one aspect, you need to improve in another aspect to make you a better Marine, is that clear, twinkletoes?!
So you think this is gonna be one of those Victoria’s Secret runway fashion shows, do ya? Well, get down and gimme twenty five for being over confident with your assumptions, private! Confidence in the workplace means you’re not so shy anymore about what happens like going to a meeting and saying something. It means you’re one with the team. Ya got that?
When you get more familiar with the workplace, the long-serving workers aren’t going to keep an eye out for you as they once did and will allow you to work on your own without always checking on you. The level of scrutiny isn’t as bad as when you first started out. But not in my beloved Marine Corps. No. The moment you get in, I will personally bum- kick you every time you mess up at work or at the range or even in your sleep and it’ll only end when you leave. Do you maggots understand that?
