New Alert. President to visit 1st MarDiv tomorrow.

1st Marine Division Public Affairs Office put out a news blast that the President is to appear at Camp Pendleton tomorrow at noon to thank the Marines and Sailors for their work.

What would be discussed is the fact that cutting the Marine Corps down to 150,000 boatspaces is in the works.

How is this different from previous drawdowns?

Those were conscription forces.  They didn't volunteer (well some did, the majority didn't) so the drawdown came largely from people that didn't want to remain in service.  This time it will be different.  Saddle up and get ready.  The Corps can place its needs ahead of yours but you can't put the Corps ahead of the needs of your family.  Get your house in order for any eventuality.
