One of the most time-honored phrases in the Marine Corps — "every Marine a rifleman" — could get an update as the service's top leaders consider new gender-neutral job titles for all positions.Its time for the Marine Corps leadership to grow a spine and revolt against the SecNav. This isn't about an agenda to "diversify" the Marine Corps and open job opportunities to women.
The Marine Corps is conducting a sweeping review of its military occupational specialty titles, Capt. Philip Kulczewski, a Marine spokesman at the Pentagon, told Marine Corps Times. The move follows a January directive from Navy Secretary Ray Mabus that Navy and Marine leaders ensure all job titles are gender neutral as ground combat jobs opened to women.
Mabus specifically wanted the word "man" dropped from all titles. That could mean that female Marines — or even men — heading to ground-combat jobs may not pick up traditional titles like rifleman or artilleryman.
This is an assault against our culture.
I will be watching this carefully. The Army isn't going thru this nonsense but the Marine Corps is? Chesty must be cursing us all. Leadership for not standing up and the rest of the Corps for remaining silent.
