Poor little snow-weenie didn’t like Marine Corps boot camp. No one likes Marine Corps boot camp. It’s that way for good reason. But this little man suffered emotional trauma and has set out to destroy the institution. That’s how progressives roll. If they don’t like something, even if it’s valuable and has been working superbly for hundreds of years, they can not respect it for what it is and that they don’t have what it takes to finish it. Instead they will, without remorse, destroy a great thing because they got their little sensibilities chafed.
“‘They put us through hell’: A Marine abused at boot camp explains why he spoke out”

Within months, he began suffering a breakdown. He was hospitalized with suicidal thoughts and refused to continue training at Pensacola, Fla. He was sent home with an “other-than-honorable” discharge, according to military documents.
In November, he and his father, Troy, began fighting his discharge, saying his breakdown was the result of the abusive environment at Parris Island.
“They say it’s a rite of passage to us,” said Weaver, 21, of the abuse. “That that’s why they put us through hell. But in no way is it benefiting us, or anything. It’s pointless. I just felt like someone has to say something, and I know I’m probably going to get a lot of flak and whatnot, but it’s the right thing to do.”
