    Failed to deliver

    So, I'm not sure if this was intentional or not but it seems the Marine Times has failed to put new issues on the shelf in certain exchanges since the "Fight and win in the barracks" issue. What gives? Is this by design or is there someone pulling the strings on this?
    If I stay in this beloved Corps I vow to try my hardest to put a kink in the careerism and duechebaggary that plagues the ranks in an attempt to prevent the downfall of a lethal, vigorous and purportedly adaptive force.

    If the issues didn't make on the shelf it is probably the particular exchange vice Marine Corps Times.

    Maybe it sold out already?

    Backround info on fight and win: The CMC made the best powerpoint in the world (made someone else make it more likely) which cover things like only NCO stand duty, a rover on every deck, and cameras to tie it all together.

    Probably, I just noticed it still sitting out the earlier today.

    Edit: There have been reports of some commanders shlobbing on the knob and beginning to implement some of these "ideas". Excellent ideas assholes, instead of training Marines lets just put all the NCO's on duty and all their Marines walking around like idiots.

    Design. I'm in Okinawa, and we haven't seen an issue since the one you are referring to. I have this distinct feeling in my gut that it's related to the fact there's an article in one of the newer issues since the 7 October 2013 issue which talks about 27 Former Officers and Lawyers pushing for a Congressional Investigation into the Commandant. Keep the masses in check so that no one ridicules the motivational video played during the Marine Corps Ball. That's why I subscribed to the online version. Stay Semper Gumby.
