The Duty NCO is supposed to check all his men before leaving the base. It sounds like someone did not do their job. The First Sergeant should have had a letter of reprimand minimum placed in his jacket. So should the Officer in Charge. Feces should roll uphill as well as downhill.

      There is a positive side to allowing them to take media phones. They can use it to contact the rear if comms are down. They can use it to take pictures for intel purposes and multiple other activities. Company Level Intelligence Cells (CLIC) have been using the Marines data collected from their cell phones for at least 10 years now.

      The Marines SNCO should have immediately forced them to dig fighting holes as a punishment.

        Within the Corps there is a bit of a different grammatical setup with reference to certain things:

        I'm not an Ex-Marine, I'm a Former Marine by virtue of an Honorable Discharge. Medically Discharged Marines are also former Marines. This is denoting that I am not subject to involuntary recall to service like a reservist would be, but I remain a part of the brotherhood. Retired Marines, depending on individual taste, will answer for Retired or Former. In essence being a "Former" anything within the Corps is the dignity equivalent of retiring from something prior to what would have actually been retirement age. I'm a Former Redpatcher or Former Marine, depending on whether I'm talking to a Marine or a Civilian respectively.
        Schuttlebutt at System Command was that he was Commandant for two reasons; to get the F-35 moving along and to break tradition of Infantry holding the spot.

        An interesting side note, Amos set this policy:

        “A Marine is a Marine. I set that policy two weeks ago – there’s no such thing as a former Marine.
        You’re a Marine, just in a different uniform and you’re in a different phase of your life. But you’ll always be a Marine because you went to Parris Island, San Diego or the hills of Quantico.
        There’s no such thing as a former Marine.”

        Interesting because he never went to TBS......"the hills of Quantico"

          What hills? The only hills I saw in the training areas were all the piles of stuff lost by the Officer Candidates. I guess their packs were too heavy to carry a full load.

          My worst jump story:
          My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
          As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
          No lie.

            There are some hills there but the pain in the butt ones are on the OCS side....
