For those interested in supporting the Fine Arts department at The Citadel there is a VIP Cocktail Reception and Private Book Signing prior to the free public lecture and Q&A event. The VIP ticket price is $125 and includes a copy of the book. Parents of cadets who cannot attend can purchase a ticket and arrange to have the signed book delivered to your cadets MSC box on campus if your cadet cannot attend. Email Professor Tiffany Silverman with your cadet’s name, company and their box number. Her email address is: silvermant(at)citadel.edu
This is in response to the April 4 letter “Pure propaganda” by former Army Staff Sgt. James Hood, who questioned the toughness of Marine recruit training. The Marine Corps doesn’t let just anyone in, which is why if you don’t qualify, or the recruiters think you can’t hack it, they send you down the hallway to the Army recruiters.
Drill instructors mold slimy civilians into Marines. The Marines are elite. In his letter, Hood compared the Marine Corps in general with the Army Airborne or Rangers, which is the elite of the Army. If you are going to compare those, then you should try comparing Marine special operations teams to Army Special Forces.
Marines earn their titles during boot camp. As Hood stated, soldiers don’t earn their title until much later. Only a Marine would understand this, and since Hood is not a Marine, his opinion is null and void.

If you take the time to read through my story, then thank you!
Over the past year and a half my life has gone downhill. I have been diagnosed with PTSD, Major Depressive disorder, alcohol abuse disorder, narcolepsy, hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, irritable bowel syndrome and laryngopharangeal reflux. I am also finally being screened for TBI. I am only 29.
I have been forced to work in a hostile work environment from where I received harassment from my leadership. I was written up on false charges by a MSgt that doesn’t like me because I am a female Marine. I was harassed and threatened daily with dishonorable discharges. I’ve been told that I was a horrible Marine and I would be made fun of for my memory problems. I have had my command question my mental health/medical diagnosis and been subjected to three extensive personality tests to determine if I was malingering or had a personality disorder.
I was lauded by generals, civilians and everyone I worked with. I don’t think you would find any service member who didn’t think I was a highly motivated Marine and would follow me anywhere. I was always at the top of the list.
With the increase of PTSD and suicides among troops and veterans, you would think the political pressure would cause military commanders to stop treating their troops like garbage. The fact is, its nothing but political smoke. Just a smoke screen to make it look like the military cares but when commanders are allowed to railroad their troops with no repercussions, simply due to the “good ole boy network” is a disgrace. Commanders that harass their troops and make their mental health and medical situations incredibly worse is a significant cause and directly relates to the alarming increase of suicide among military members and veterans. Troops are being discharged and disciplined due to symptoms directly related to mental health issues. This can result in loss of rank, pay and a dishonorable discharge which gives you absolutely no benefits. When it rains, it pours but its a monsoon in my life.
The reality is that I am in desperate need of a helping hand due to financial stress that just adds one more thing to my already overcrowded plate. We are hoping all of you can help with whatever support you can offer. Please consider your donation a gift,this is not designated a 501 (c)3. I will be forever grateful. Thank you

Good luck. I am a supporter of Marley’s Mutts and I adopted one of their dogs. Also, my husband was in the USAF 20 years, so I understand what you mean.
