Response to Haven't heard from Will...
Miss Debbie I think you might remind your son about the "Team" spirit he learned in boot, and how every man in that team is important. No man is more important than the other. I was, for most of my career a "Grunt", (We were called "Mud Marines" back then) but it was the same living conditions, living in a hole in the ground and smelling something terrible. Our clothes were in shreads most of the time, especially after being out for a lengthy period for a time, and when we took them off they were burned. And Oh how we envied those supply people. Why they got to sleep in tents or shelter halves. And they even, sometimes got to live in bunkers. (What luxury).
But the bottom line was without them we would have had no bullets, beans or bandages. Also when our clothing was burned we would have been naked and doggone cold to say the least. With nothing to shoot back at the enemy...cold, hungry, no ammo and no bandages or life saving meds for the wounded. That's how very important the supply people are to the Corps.
I didn't intend to be so long winded, so please just tell Will that this old Master Gunnery Sergeant said his job is just as important as mine ever was. The "Team" can have no weaknesses or it will not function. He's a very important part of that team.
