I met a female Marine Staff Sargent last year who was engaged to a Marine who was a recruiter in Berkeley at the time (he may have since been transferred). She was just an amazing woman. During our conversation I said that it must be a very difficult job to recruit out of Berkeley, your fiance must be some guy. She said, “Yes he is. Soft spoken, even tempered, calm, and tough as nails.” She told me that occasionally while passing out cards he would have a Berkeley punk toss the card on the ground in front of him, to which he would say, very calmly, “Pick that up and hand it back to me.” She said smiling, “They always do, and if you saw my fiance you would know why!” We both laughed.
She also said you would be surprised by the quality of the recruits from the area, which is very high. Maybe the good ones are few and far between but they are more sold out and better Marines because they overcome so much by living in that environment.
Capt. Lund who is the recruiter in Berkeley now is an awesome guy too.
I met him a week ago just as he was closing up shop.
Earlier that day when he stepped out to get something to eat, the loony leftists had plastered the windows with notes and little signs with their standard childish slogans on them.
The cops outside told me about that, and how when he came back he ripped them all down.
There is a video on U tube of him doing that.
What I wondered, but didn't think to ask the cops “guarding” the office, why they allowed the pinko sicko’s to vandalize his office, a Federal office at that.
In their defense, the cops there that day were nice guys doing their job just fine otherwise.
That was the day that two pinkos got arrested for vandalizing the inside of the office (well actually for not leaving when instructed to by the police) later when he went into one of the back offices for a minute.
