Today at 8am we were supposed to have a poolee meeting, run a IST (individual strength test), and afterwards have a USMC birthday celebration for all the poolees since yesterday was the 231st birthday of the Marine Corps. I got there around 7:45am and all the Marines were standing outside and the SNCOIC of the entire district was there, i've never seen him before and he never comes out to routine poolee meetings like this so I knew something was going on, there was also a police car out front but I didn't think much of it because police officers come by all the time just to talk with the poolees since a lot of them are also Marines or Soldiers and are in the reserves and were recruited out of the recruiting stations right there. So I park my car and walk up to the office and there is ****ing red paint splattered all across the front of the windows and the American flag outside was soaked in red paint and all on the sidewalk in front of the office and on the other windows was red paint with anti-war slogans written everywhere, most of them you couldn't even really read because it wasn't legible but you could make out a few words like "war," "impeach," "murderers," "iraq" and just tons of crap like that. The paint was still wet so you knew it was fresh and they must have done it within the past couple hours at the most, i'd like to see those ****ing *****'s try that later in the day when there are 6 US Marines there. It's too bad they did it on a Saturday when everyone got there between 7am and 8am, because on weekdays the Marines are there at like 4am. After the police took the report and left, all of the Marines and all of the poolees, including me spent the next hour or so cleaning all the paint and **** up. After we finished the Gunny gave us an awesome motivating speech. It's a real wake up call and it really opens your eyes when you see this type of bull**** first hand and in real life right in front of you and it makes you look at things in a different way. I can only imagine how it must have been for all the veterans of Vietnam during that era, I don't even want to try and compare this experience to what they had to go through because that wouldn't be right, god bless all of those Vietnam vets who had the whole country against them, god bless them all. Seeing **** like this just makes me want to go to boot camp and earn that title even more now, only about 7 weeks to go.
