The article reports that the United States Marine Corps has lost the talent of innovative and capable Marines because of the poor leadership. The Marine Corps doesn't have time to train insubordinate troops who are disrespectful and ignorant. The Marine Corps stretches, rends, destroys and then trains the marine troops. There's a huge demographic of gifted privates who deserve better than what they have experienced. The classic Marine temper tantrum is so commonplace in the Corps that many call it normal.
